2013 TOS novel blurbs

The Simon and Schuster online catalogue has been updated with the first blurbs for the four TOS novels coming in 2013:

Allegiance in Exile, by David R. George III
After a particularly horrifying experience, Captain James T. Kirk starts down the path toward something he believes he might regret for the rest of his days: accepting a commission as an admiral working at Starfleet Headquarters on Earth, far removed from the mysteries and adventures of deep-space exploration.

Space itself seems inconsistent—warping, changing appearance. But during the brief periods of calm, they locate the McRave—along with other ships of various origins, all tightly surrounding and being held in place by an enormous unidentified vessel....
