Super spoilery new blurb for Peaceable Kingdoms

Simon and Schuster have released a new blurb for the final book in The Fall series, Dayton Ward's Peaceable Kingdoms. I guess now the series is under-way they feel more comfortable spilling the beans, but if you haven't Revelation and Dust yet I suggest you read no further on this page! It also rather gives away some of the outcomes on the way in the middle books in the series, so if you're spoiler averse I'd stop here too. New blurb after the jump, and this picture of the cover:


Following the resolution of the fertility crisis that nearly caused their extinction, the Andorian people now stand ready to rejoin the United Federation of Planets. The return of one of its founding member worlds is viewed by many as the first hopeful step beyond the uncertainty and tragedy that have overshadowed recent events in the Alpha Quadrant. But as the Federation looks to the future and the special election to name President Bacco’s permanent successor, time is running out to apprehend those responsible for the respected leader’s brutal assassination. Even as elements of the Typhon Pact are implicated for the murder, Admiral William Riker holds key knowledge of the true assassins— a revelation that could threaten the fragile Federation-Cardassian alliance.

Questions and concerns also continue to swell around Bacco’s interim successor, Ishan Anjar, who uses the recent bloodshed to further a belligerent, hawkish political agenda against the Typhon Pact. With the election looming, Riker dispatches his closest friend, Captain Jean-Luc Picard, in a desperate attempt to uncover the truth. But as Picard and the Enterprise crew pursue the few remaining clues, Riker must act on growing suspicions that someone within Ishan’s inner circle has been in league with the assassins from the very beginning . . . .
You can catch up on the other blurbs from the series, in my earlier round-up.

Now we're down in the spoiler zone. Anyone else expecting a rallying call of "Vote Picard" by the end of all this?

The title of the post is "super spoilery new blurb", and I noted at length that in my introduction that it spoils the books that precede it...

"if you haven't Revelation and Dust yet I suggest you read no further on this page! It also rather gives away some of the outcomes on the way in the middle books in the series, so if you're spoiler averse I'd stop here too"

I don't think I could have been a lot clearer that this blurb contains spoilers...

You're right, I'm sorry, my fault for ruining it for myself, I'm mad at myself. I can't believe they released such spoilers for what is probably going to be the end of The Fall books 3 and 4 which have been so good.

I really enjoy your blog and sorry again.

No worries, I can understand the frustration. Spoilerist blurb ever!
