Description

As the most serious threat ever facing the galaxy now looms over them—weapons able to destroy stars—Calvin and his enterprising crew continue their mission to expose and eliminate the dark conspiracy that has taken root inside the Empire. Now a fugitive on the run, Calvin has no choice but to work alongside Raidan’s mysterious Organization. And accept help from the unlikeliest band of fair-weather friends, including a mysterious squad of Polarian soldiers, an ex-intelligence-operative from the Rotham Republic, and the ever elusive Tristan—whose truest motives are a closely guarded secret.

To make matters worse, Calvin is hunted mercilessly across the stars by Intel Wing’s top operative, Lafayette Nimoux, who is aided by a double-agent on Calvin’s own ship.

Meanwhile the sands of fortune are shifting within the Empire, upsetting the delicate political climate. Warships and civilian transports are vanishing without a trace and murders in the dark are going unnoticed. All eyes are fixed on Renora—a human colony that has been savagely attacked and thrown into civil war. The prime suspect behind the attack is none other than Princess Kalila Akira. All the dark signs are pointing to what could be the death of the Empire, and the end of human dominance in the galaxy."

    Really enjoying this series a lot. The flawed characters are so real. I am hoping for a little more progress in the next book just to move things along. I especially like the Summers character as she is so mysterious and unknowable. Maybe we will get a look into he mind and see how it ticks.

    It has been a long time since I've read a sci-fi series as interesting and as suspenseful as this one. The second instalment, The Phoenix Rising, continues the journey of intrigue, betrayal, and heroism that the first book began. I can't wait to start the next one - downloaded as I write this!

    Not to mention the fact I would have paid money for the first instalment of the series, the second novel does not disappoint. Hunter turns into hunted, and the conspiracy deepens. I am a new, big fan, and if you enjoyed the first, you will certainly enjoy the second. Characters get more depth, and you are kept on the edge of your seat. Great writing, I love it.
  • Hard to put down

    I anticipate the next installment with great excitement. I can't help but desire for a more depth look at this amazing universe. I also hope as an adult book we aren't restricted to the chase and conspiracy maybe see deeper into the lives of the aliens and humans.
  • Amazing
