I’m gonna get into trouble here because I haven’t read past Voyager, but I was also confused about why we were spending so much time with this random new character in DiA. Now, knowing (what little) I know about Roger and his future, it makes more sense, but it was definitely disorienting to have his POV straight out of the gates in DiA.

I did think that his relationship with Claire in DiA was so much more fully fleshed out — and REAL — than his relationship with Bree, but then again, maybe that part comes later. I, too, struggle with Bree as a character. She’s really more of a concept in the early books, I guess. And, having read Diana’s meditations on creating Bree in (I think) The Outlandish Companion, I can understand why.
