    Hi

    I knwo the date of the official release is not till thursday, but, i have seen copies at several shops in London, esp Waterstones, and Murder Inc (all of which are UK copies not US imports)

    Two down points though - the price: it was £16.99.
    And the book is major heavy, only book so far that was that heavy so far has been I, Jedi (to my recolection) but that can be a good thing (if you believe high page count = good book)

    Anyway, i picked up my copy today, and just got home, but apparently that have had copies there since saturday, so if you havent got your copy yet, go get it!

    I also got my VP and BP quite early but had to wait almost two weeks for my rebirth and my ruin, i guess we will be in for a long wait with Dark Journey

    Rebirth is the only book I had trouble obtaining.

    BP I got days early and Conquest 2 weeks early so who knows wha the future holds?

    Amazon.co.uk has it coming in 2 to 3 days.

    It's a bit cheaper there too.

    lejmar_faldor_uk, when you see how big the book is, i'm not sure you'll be suprised at the price :D, it's huge! I got it today and have read the first five chapters. So far dark as hell.
