Does anyone have an official UK release date for the new Acorna novel? (And the new PTB one for that matter!)

Ok, scrap that! I've just looked on Amazon and First Warning is currently for sale, but the new PTB is currently looking to be released just *after* Christmas. So change that to - has anyone got the new Acorna and read it yet?

I have to admit that the cover that is on Amazon (Del Rey) for the PTB book looks a little ..... well it's not what i would have chosen! Although I like the look of the 2 characters. Not sure about the double seal badge/logo thing.

I don't know about an official release date but I have it already from Amazon.co.uk Unfortunately PirateDragon is going to read it first so I've still got to wait to read it
Story line synopsis:-
First Warning
Khorii, daughter of the near-mythic Acorna and her lifemate, Aari, must contend with an overwhelming legacy to forge a path of her own through a universe filled with new adversaries and adventures.
A simple journey home to visit her parents turns into a race against time when Khorii happens upon a derelict spacecraft drifting in space, its crew dead in their seats. But this gruesome discovery is only a dread harbinger -- a deadly plague is spreading across the universe and not even the healing powers of the Linyaari can slow its horrific advance. Khorii, one of the few unaffected by the outbreak, must find the nefarious perpetrators and a cure before the disease consumes all in its path -- including her beloved parents.

Saw it in Barnes and Noble today, but didn't buy - what I've heard on it so far just doesn't interest me enough to spare that kind of money. Besides, I was already getting three other books, including one hardcover, and two magazines. More than I'd planned for...

Uh-huh.

Well I'll get it because you have to complete the series, don't you? Besides, if you went around listening to what other people are saying all day long, how would you ever know how to make an opinion of your own??

No I don't need them all, on two crowded shelves, with the amount of space hardcovers take. And I was already becoming less interested in Acorna anyway. Maybe I'll take a look when the paperback comes out, not sure yet.

I don't always go with opinion either...or I wouldn't have bought Dragon'sKin or be keeping an eye out for Drgaon'sBlood to be published in paperback out of curiosity.
