Tanner Malone is starting to enjoy his navy post in the honor guard. After surviving violent conflicts with space pirates in the void, he hopes to stay out of the stars for a while. But when the government of Archangel, a prosperous Union state including four terraformed worlds, makes a dangerous decision to defy the Big Three's corporate dominance, war threatens the galaxy.
The interstellar fighting escalates, and duty calls a reluctant Tanner to the front lines, where it becomes more and more difficult to tell the difference between politician, pirate, and protector. When secret intel reveals a vast network of bloody covert operations, along with a rigged economic system that enslaves its members, Tanner finds himself at the perilous intersection between the government, the Big Three, and pirates who will stop at nothing to remain free.

An excellent follow up to the original. Great work Mr. Kay. I was not expecting this series to be as good as you have made it. Great stroy.
Yes, it's a middle series book. No, it's not boring. This series impresses me. There's a hidden depth to the plotting, the characters are well developed and not static, the politics are more mature and the description of corporate intrigue are given more thought than the generic corporate bad guy in an SF novel. Oh, and the battles continue to be fast paced and brutal.
This is an excellent series. It is well written and it reminds me of my Navy training days. I'm pretty sure the protagonist should have ptsd by now. In addition, how will Tanner ever meet Miranda or Kelly on the same level without a commission?
This second installment was phenomenal. The absolutely immersive interstellar saga had me so engrossed that I can hardly wait for part three.
as a fan of this author this is what I want my favorite books to hero. I was truly excited when I heard it was coming out for audio. As someone has spent a lot of time in the car driving back and forth from work and different projects I relish the experience of just listening to it and relaxing. The characters are really really dynamic and I really love the challenges that they go through.
Audible books are the perfect companion for my 4 mile morning walk!
I've listened to both books. The stories aren't bad, but there is not much substance there, and you don't really learn anything or have to think about anything. It's a space opera, plain and simple. A rather silly premise, but that's space opera for you.
