While the novel was more Borg heavy than I thought it would be, I was impressed at how it was done so that it wasn't overwhelming, and was used to further the story, but was not the focus of the story.
I didn't feel that the Borg were all that heavily used, though, to be fair, I was so shocked at Hugh's presence that the Evilborg (TM) pretty much faded into insignificant oblivion... well... until...

As to the final sequence and the lead in to Destiny... All I can say is
HOLY ****!!!!
Yea, tell me about it. Usually it's David Mack you can count on for a bloodbath, but CLB definately stuck it to him there. I can't really remember a bigger slaughter in the novels... though I am sure there has been one.

I'll admit, in the line, "Resistance is futile... but you are welcome to try" (or something like that, I don't have the copy in front of me at the moment) I kept hearing a Clint Eastwood-esque Borg voice. Not sure why.
