Re: Charting the Novel-verse
Just noticed your reply, Christopher.
Basically, RBoE establishes the reunification of the Romulan Empire. This is basically unimportant to Seize the Fire, but does reinforce the idea of why Riker's so scared of a Typhon Pact fleet showing up. But the Romulans are able to amass a pretty significant force to blockade the Breen border and this makes a lot more sense after RBoE. Why would the Romulans send so many vessels if they were worried about the Imperial Romulan State? As well, both books refer to a singular Romulan state. I do think there is a single scene where Ezri mentions Donatra which wouldn't seem out of place if read in publication order, but sticks out if you think about the chronology. As well, I think the Romulan situation being solved first just makes more sense from a reader's perspective.
