Publisher's Summary

The second book in a thrilling sci-fi action adventure, set on Donovan, a treacherous alien planet where corporate threats and dangerous creatures imperil the lives of the planet's colonists. New York Times best-selling author W. Michael Gear returns us to the world he laid out with such sure purpose in Outpost.

The struggle for survival sharpens as resources dwindle, technology fails, and the grim reality of life on Donovan unfolds. Supervisor Kalico Aguila has bet everything on a fragile settlement far south of Port Authority. There, she has carved a farm and mine out of wilderness. But Donovan is closing in. 

When conditions couldn't get worse, a murderous peril descends out of Donovan's sky - one that will leave Kalico bleeding and shattered. Talina Perez gambles her life and reputation in a bid to atone for ruthlessly murdering a woman's husband years ago. Ironically, saving Dya Simonov may save them all.

Lieutenant Deb Spiro is losing it, and by killing a little girl's pet alien, she may have precipitated disaster for all. In the end, the only hope will lie with a "lost" colony, and the alien-infested reflexes possessed by Security Officer Talina Perez. 

On Donovan, only human beings are more terrifying than the wildlife.

Good Book

This book is basically a continuation of the people of Donovan striving to survive despite numerous hardships. New characters are introduced. I loved Talbot, Kylee and Rocket. Hated Spiro. There is a twist in the plot with some of the new characters that I found very intriguing and sad. Unfortunately, there is absolutely nothing about the Freelander (the ghost ship) which is what I was really looking forward too. So that was very disappointing. Also, there was a ton of unnecessarily long descriptiveness which really added nothing to the plot. Just made the book extremely long when it didn't need to be that long which is why I only gave 4 stars. I'll get the 3rd book but if it's just another book about the struggles of the people of Donovan, I will be extremely disappointed. I WANT MORE ABOUT THE FREELANDER!

Incredible!

This series, so far, has been one of the best I have ever heard! Absolutely has me comtinually tramsported and living on Donovan!
This narrator, too, is one of the best I have ever listened to and, incidentally, the best female narrator of them all--by far! Simply excellent! I hope she narrates book 3. I hope there are many more books after that, btw, and a trilogy of movies would be very well-received, I am certain!
