Especially when you consider that almost all of the readers of these books are not only familiar with DS9, but intimately so, because only big fans would actually read these books. But the deep subject/levity balance is what I’ve always liked about DS9.
Quark stood behind the bar and anxiously studied the display screen above the replicator. It's sort of funny, I feel more like this is a story told by Quark himself, rather than a novel written by Armin Shimerman and other authors. The messages regarding racism and the cycle of violence are well-represented in this novel's pages, and the story carries on the proud Trek tradition of shedding light on issues of social justice and liberal ideals.

George III have crafted an excellent tale that fits very well into the Deep Space Nine continuity, and forces the reader to look at the Ferengi in a way that is all-too rare: not as silly, over-the-top antagonists, but as well-rounded characters fully deserving of respect and consideration.

He watched as the lumbering figure dropped onto a seat on the other side of the bar and set down a tall, cobalt-blue glass. Fast Starships, Lovable Rogues, Snarky AI's, & Alien Menaces. I listened to the audiobook which was read by Armin Shimerman - it was a bit confusing because he voices almost all the characters and since I know him AS the voice of Quark, and Quark is the protagnoist, it got a bit confusing at times following who was talking.
