Halfway through now. I have to admit, I'm having some issues with picturing the Venetans.
The Convention is described as a multi-species society. I assumed that the Venetans encountered belonged to the furred species save when, as with negotiator Rusht, they were described as much more humanoid.

I'm not hooked yet like I was with PoN/RtD which I couldn't put down. But that's not to say I'm not liking it. I'm getting this feeling that Una's working towards something, something ugly. Something bad. Things are only going downhill. Very curious to see where it's going to end.
Crusher's anger at having been played by Akaar may come out.

I'm holding of judgement untill the end of the novel, but I am hoping that Una will make Ezri likeable again for me.
I quite liked Ezri's depiction. The speech she gave Alden isn't quite a Crowning Moment of Awesome, but ...
