Ezri on the Aventine (Destiny)

I'm about 75 pages into the first Destiny novel, and I can't help but think I've missed something along the way...

Warpath was the last DS9 novel I read, and that was quite along time ago now.

I tried looking this up by myself, but found it difficult to avoid spoilers on memory alpha.

Am I missing something, or do you suggest I just shut up and keep reading because everything will be flushed out?

Re: Ezri on the Aventine (Destiny)

Well, there is about four or five years of story time between the two stories, so yeah, you're missing quite a lot. Not all of that time has been covered in the books - especially not from the DS9 characters' POV.

But the scene in Warpath about Dax considering a transfer off DS9 - that was a set-up for where we find her in Destiny. The other DS9 characters don't play much of a role in the story (if any), so everything else you need to know will probably be right there in the text.

Re: Ezri on the Aventine (Destiny)

I've never read any DS9 books and didn't watch the show too much, but I found Destiny really easy to join. I've read all the TNG relaunch stuff though so I'm sure that helped.

Anyway, carry on reading, you'll pick up what you need to no problem

Re: Ezri on the Aventine (Destiny)

Yeah. You missed two DS9 relaunch novels, in which Ezri decides to transfer off-station. Destiny takes place 5 years later, and so far we have no idea what happens to any other DS9 people in that time. Ezri's backstory is filled in later in Gods Of Night.

The Rough Beasts of Empire, later this year, will jump DS9 to the same timeframe, and tell us where all the rest of them have ended up in the mean time.

Re: Ezri on the Aventine (Destiny)

Ezri's actual transfer and the reasons behind her decision haven't been shown (yet). All we know is what's been revealed in Destiny and A Singular Destiny.

I usually buy my books from amazon, but I got A Singular Destiny and a few other books from Science Fiction Bokhandeln over a year ago. I am rather confused by that statement.

How so? i bought the destiny series from that store and i found a singular destiny among the newly released books. if you bought it over a year ago it must have been some kind of bug. or was it something else confusing?

Well, we can conclude that it is not a newly released book in this country. And since we are apparently speaking of the same store, I just don't see why one would have to wait a year for the Typhon Pact books.
