It should be dowloaded shortly. I should start it by Friday, and be less affected by the oblique spoilers.

I haven't read the book yet, but damn, this is cold! I look forward to reading it, though, as Plagues Of Night is probably the best of the Typhon Pact series thus far.

I was heartrending to read. So much of this story is. Halfway and it's brilliant so far.

Logically it makes sense for that to happen. Still Sad.

I'm a few chapters in. Wow. I think we have our contenders for the best novels of the year.

Robert Lyons at Trekmovie has posted a review - a very positive and glowing review. Be wary though, as it contains massive spoilers. Lyons ends the review with "DO NOT MISS THIS BOOK".

I also see that Doug Drexler designed the image on the cover, presumably he also did the same for Plagues of Night.

^Awesome, I am a big fan of Doug's work I belive he did all the Vanguard covers too.

^Damn. Just when I don't think something can't make this book sound any cooler, I read something like that last bit of the spoiler. I went ahead and downloaded this and Plagues this morning and read the first page of Plagues.
