Just finished Raise the Dawn, and I'm more than a little shellshocked. This is, in just about every way, a far more satisfying "conclusion" to this chapter of the DS9 saga than Unity was back in the day. There are certain characters I'm definitely going to miss from now on, but every dramatic choice for the plot also rang true to each character. I am satisfied. Now, after a couple of tylenol and a couple of hours sleep, I shall begin Brinkmanship. And thence, on to Cold Equations.
