Having saved the world from the sinister Warlord, Esro Brachis wanted nothing more than to relax and work on his wondrous suit of armor. But then the superpower-adapting robot attacked...And alien soldiers landed in his back yard...And a strange force hurtled him across the galaxy, with only a beautiful alien starship officer at his side. Come to think of it, the whole situation actually might not be so bad - if only she didn't want to kill him!
Continuing the saga following the momentous events of Sentinels: When Strikes the Warlord, the second Sentinels volume brings more action, more adventure, new enemies and allies, and a cosmic-time-travel leap across the galaxy!

"This kind of fun doesn't come along every day." (Pulp Fiction Reviews)
"There's a grandness to this book. You need to be reading the Sentinels." (Percival Constantine, author of SoulQuest)
The story was great! You can really tell that Van enjoys writing these and he pulls from multiple superhero sources to get his inspiration. It took a while for me to get used to the speakers voice and tone. It was almost as if he was going for a sense of the dramatic, but it was coming off more like vocal fry in my ears. Overall, though, absolutely wonderful story, even better than the first, and I can't wait to get hold of number three!
Plexico continues his superhero series with the second instalment, A Distant Star. I am happy to report that the the wonderful balance he strikes between likeable characters saving the universe, and his tongue-in-cheek writing style that doesn't take itself too seriously yet never fails to entertain, was handsomely met. This story picks up where the last one left off, continuing marvelously with each character's development, as well as introducing us to new ones. If you like superhero stories, or like a fun filled story that is more light hearted, this series is highly recommended. The narration nicely done. There has been some previous reviews with the first installment from people who didn't like Pete Milan. I think he is the perfect narrator for this story. He gets the story and delivers it the way it is meant.
