What about the fact that Revelation and Dust
is book one of a five book mini-series don't some of you get? If everything was wrapped up in the first book, there would be no need for the other four books.
Take a good look at The Empire Strikes Back
. It ended with a cliff-hanger and we have to wait for the next movie to find out what happens. It's the same sort of thing here.
It's not supposed to wrap things up in book one. It's supposed to wrap things up in book five. Yes, some things will be wrapped up before book five, but the entire story won't be wrapped up until book five.
Now, onto the actual book. I'm not finished reading it, but one thing I am liking is finding out what's happened to some of the characters during the two year time span. For example, Sisko and family have moved on since we last saw them. That is character development right there.
