Mary, that's why I ordered from the Book Depository, in the UK, which has free international shipping. I don't want to wait a day longer than necessary!
Don't know if this has been discussed elsewhere, but I just saw on the HarperVoyager website a listing for Initiate's Trial in ebook format, with a release date of Oct 27 (simultaneous with the HC).
Knew it was to good to be true, the audio version info page has vanished, probably never to be seen again.
Does anyone recall where we were having that discussion about how humans got to Athera? I have something I want to contribute.
