I finished the book today. I liked the "present day parts" more, but the Kira parts weren't too bad; though it did start out slowly. I guess I would say above average for my vote overall.
I have a question about the Prophets: both onscreen and in the novels we have seen that they are powerful. They can manipulate the destinies of various people (Sisko and his mother) and can protect Bajorans as needed.
How powerful are they? Similar to Q but not as powerful?
I'm just curious; my guess is that the writers keep it somewhat vague on purpose. I hope this makes sense. Thanks.
