This second book of Redleg In Space series picks up immediately at the end of the first book. Zade discovers the ship he has been given is more than it seems and may provide him the means to further his mission. After escaping a last minute attempt to kill him, he begins to build a crew to help him with his mission, to protect Earth from the two alien superpowers. If you enjoy the series Omega Force, you will like this.
This book continues to have a couple of plot holes and events are rather too convenient for the hero. The editing is the worst, but readable. But I like this kind of story, so I put up with it. It is okay ( 3.5 stars?).
