It's a fun novel, which is a good thing to fit into the Trek release schedule amid the long trilogies of 2016 and the somewhat darker other publications in the 2017 schedule. It's good to see some of the characters who make the TV series entertaining, as well as some who are new or were secondary before.
The trio of stories helps to make the novel feel like it's moving well, and it's nicely paced to bounce between them at the right intervals. It does feel for the most part though a little as if there are three novellas just intercut, but I don't think that's a problem as it does mirror quite nicely the way some of the episodes are structured.
Another excellent DS9 story from David R George III, and one that continues to keep me waiting desperately for the next book to learn how the adventures continue.
However the main problem was.... it was very very boring. Nothing really happens and what doesn't happen, doesn't happen at a glacial pace. Neither main story has any particular merit - yes Vic is an interesting minor character but to have some many of the cast involved in his story and doing such extreme things to save him strains credibility between repair.
The twist in the story with Kira is so obvious that it's a terrible slog waiting for the characters to catch up with the readers. Moreover (and I'll hold my hands up - this is my problem) I've never found the bajorian religious belief system very interesting - it's always been an odd fix for the secular humanism Star Trek and there is nothing here to make me change my mind.
