    They're living inside of some false reality. It's really frustrating.

    Haven't read the entire thing yet but so far I'm disappointed. I was hoping for a lot more (and better) illustrations rather than pages upon pages of quick summaries/cover blurbs.

    So, not to sound like a broken record, but there are pages out of order in the Kindle edition. I'm trying to figure out what would be the best way to complain to Del Rey about it. I can't really figure out where to contact them specifically.

    Ah, okay. I wasn't sure if I should email Random House or if there was a more specific customer service address for Del Rey.

    If you got it off Amazon I'd complain to them and ask for your money back.

    I noticed Annihilation in the preview; it doesn't really seem to give much away - just something along the lines of
    Show Spoiler
    "Theron completed his mission".

    So the hero doesn't die? Well great, the story is now ruined for me. :)


    though considering some use that argument against "bridge" novels because there's supposedly no tension...

    Nathan Butler has an early copy and he mentioned something on FB about an "I am your father"-class moment. I didn't look at the RC summary too closely, to be honest, so it's possible there's something big it leaves out (or spoils, and I just didn't notice).

    Go read Pablo's response to Ceiran, it deals with Nightsisters and when they were first attributed :)

    I don't trust you completely. Granted I have little faith in Drew K to begin with
    Aww I was hoping Tavus was Satele's baby's daddy.

    It would have at least have been interesting but what else it's Drew K

    Theron's dad is obviously Darth Baras. Chicks dig the feedbag.

    Nothing to do with the quality of the book. I haven't read it. I haven't read any of the TOR stuff; not my era of interest.

    It was truly a tragedy of epic scale when the feedbag was forgotten a thousand generations later, when other, less aesthetic designs made a comeback, like those of the cruisers and starfighters.
