^ Thanks rfmcdpei. Well, that just spoilered me majorly of course (which I asked for), but somehow I also feel relief; somehow it will be easier to read knowing it going in.

(As for Sela, I always wanted to see her find out that her origin wasn't quite what she thought. IE: That Tasha was impregnated involuntarily specifically to produce a Romulan-Human hybrid, sort of Romulus's answer to Spock. No that doesn't happen in the book and I'm only mentioning it because now it won't.)

Um, use spoiler quotes.

In any case, what happened isn't as described in the above comment, not nearly.

Honestly, hearing about all this actually makes me a lot more excited for the story.
EDIT: I'd been trying to hold off buying more books until I got more of my stuff on my to read list finished (I have 152 books in my "I plan to read" list on Shelfari), but I might have to splurge and get these tomorrow, not knowing exactly what's going on is driving me crazy.

I checked online at 12am EDT and it would not download(still said pre-order). I did not get it on my kindle until 5am this morning. Maybe we have to wait until 12am PDT?

^ Technically,


I can't buy a copy of the book until the 30th at the earliest, but am kind of disappointed by something I spoiled myself on via Memory Beta.

Re: Typhon Pact: Raise the Dawn by DRGIII Review Thread (Spoilers!)

I was so looking forward to reading this book, and couldn't wait until amazon informed me that the book was ready to download onto my kindle. It downloaded this morning and wouldn't you know it, I immediately got a low battery warning message. The battery was showing only half empty! I was so disappointed and mad - I ignored the message and started reading anyway. Love it so far.
