    "Out of chocolate"?

    "Washroom temporarily closed"?

    "Trump elected president"?

    It would be nice if the list wasn't split by chapters but instead had what the order is for the books (as a whole) to read in timeline order. Yes, I know you have to deal with shifting times, but take each book as a whole and place them where they go. This split chapter timeline is not useful at all.

    Click on the spoiler link and you'll see what the three most frustrating words are.

    The inciting event was the prophecy.

    The nay-sayers went way the heck overboard and were downright rude and insulting. Ignore them. They are the reason DRGIII is no longer active here.

    I quite liked it. Tieing up some gaps in the DS9 continuity. Starting Ascendance now.

    At the start of Chapter 10, I'm finding this book to be extremely average. It's frustrating, especially because Serpents Among the Ruins and his Typhon Pact books were stories I liked a lot. I skipped this one the first time around based on the knowledge that Ascendance would be coming out to finish the story and the comments made here and elsewhere. I'm only circling back now because we are in a bit of a Trek literature drought. What is the consensus on DRG3's next two DS9 books? Are they of higher quality and worth reading, or are they similar enough to Sacraments of Fire that I should read the Memory Beta summaries first?
