First off I am a huge DS9 fan, and when they started the book relaunch so many years ago I was ecstatic. I read every book voraciously and was well pleased. But once Rough Beasts of Empire hit I was not a merry man. THe sudden turn in Sisko's character had me very displeased.
But now after Plagues of Night and Raise the Dawn I am happy again. Sisko got his head back on straight and the story was top notch. It was good to see all of the characters I have loved and to see what directions their lives have taken. It was like watching the series again. I laughed, cried, and felt joy.
