In over two centuries, the Federation has never encountered a greater threat. Twice Starfleet assembled and threw countless starships to stand against them. The Borg were stopped, the price paid in blood. Humanity breathed a sigh of relief, assuming it was safe. And with the destruction of the transwarp conduits, the Federation believed that the killing blow had finally been struck against the Borg.
Driven to the point of extinction, the Borg continue to fight for their very existence, for their culture. They will not be denied. They must not be stopped. The old rules and assumptions regarding how the Collective should act have been dismissed. Now the Borg kill first, assimilate later.
When the Enterprise manages to thwart them once again, the Borg turn inward. The dark places that even the drones never realized existed are turned outward against the enemy they have never been able to defeat. What is revealed is the thing that no one believed the Borg could do.« less

Peter David must be an uber fan, because he nails the characters perfectly....really speaking in the established character's voice. Beautifully done. I loved this book. And for the comic book fans out there, Peter sticks in some amusing "easter eggs" for us, but you'll need a sharp eye to spot them.
Book 2 in the Borg Wars series. Another very good read. Shows the evolution of the Borg and how the Federation overcomes one of its greatest threats to its existence.
Pick this one up and its prequel "Resistance".
