VOY: Unworthy by Kirsten Beyer Review Thread (Spoilers!)

I received a phone call from by local Borders that my copy has arrived and can be picked up.

Pocket Books:
Freed with a thought, the greatest menace to humanity, the Borg are gone, absorbed into the Caeliar gestalt. But are they? Can this deadly menace, that has hovered over humanity for decades truly be gone? Might some shadow of the Caeliar remain? The Federation decides that they have to know and Starfleet is ordered to find out.

The Starship Voyager leads a fleet into a region of space that has lived in fear of instant annihilation for generations, home of the Borg, the Delta quadrant. Afsarah Eden—the new captain of Voyager is charged getting answers, to reach out to possible allies, and resolve old enmities in the Delta quadrant

The perfection that was given to the Borg was withheld from Seven of Nine. Left behind she is living a twilight existence—neither Borg nor human—and slowly going mad. The whispers of the Collective, comforting mummers she has always known, is replaced with a voice deep within her that keeps insisting she is Annika Hansen. Chakotay, the former captain of Voyager, offers to help Seven rendezvous with the ships that Starfleet Command has sent into the Delta quadrant, the probable destination of the mysterious Caeliar.

These are not the friendly stars of the Federation, the unknown and the unexpected are the everyday.
This is a discussion thread so spoilers are permitted. You have been warned.

My Barnes and Noble will probably be getting it later this week, so I'll be picking that up.

Really? I would think you guys would get it first, since that's to be where Pocket's headquarters are. Or are they actually printed somewhere else?

As far as I know, they are NOT printed in NY. I think somewhere in between is where it's printed and bound.

I'm just going off of prior postings hereabouts, where it seems like people all over the country have got [insert name of Star Trek book here] before it starts showing up in NYC-area bookstores. Of course, this may just be my frustration talking...

Amazon.com lists the release date as 9/29, but my local B&N tends to get copies 3-4 days before any Amazon release date.

Indeed. I swear to whatever deity will listen, we need another postal service in this country, something to rival or beat Royal Mail (which really isn't all that hard since they're so useless). But I will be notified of its dispatch and can then pester my grandmother to see if it has come.

Amazon is listing it as being in stock starting from the 27th and BN.com says ships in 2-3days but interestingly enough, bn.com gets the books before the stores get it. In fact, Borders told me they have it sitting in storage and won't put it out till next week. Go figure.
