I really enjoyed the DS9 story, but my enjoyment was brought to a screaming halt every other chapter by the Kira/Keev storyline. I had no interest or no real understanding of it even in it's resolution, which I just found confusing. The whole book reminded me of Spock's World, where two completely different stories were told, and were out of kilter with each other. If I read Spock's World I just skip the historic chapters. If I read this again, I'll do the same as they added nothing for me.
