Publisher's Summary

For astronaut David Dixon, sneaking aboard a Russian space station and stealing a nuclear bomb was the easy part - now he has to survive re-entry on an untested inflatable heat shield and then deal with the aftermath of being the most wanted man on Earth.

When a clandestine intelligence agency offers David the chance to return to space and probably not get killed - he finds himself in a world of intrigue when a secret mission takes an unexpected turn as he goes undercover on an orbiting science platform in order to track down the spymaster known as Silverback.

A Decent Sequel that continues the series

I really wanted to give this book 5 stars. I liked it. It has everything you'd expect from a sequel. More world building. More covert space missions. More extreme space problems. I enjoy the series, but book one pulled me in and didn't let go. This one was slower to start and less of a thrill ride.

If you liked the 1st book you'll like this one, it's a solid sequel. I just wish it was as fast paced and WTF as the first one from the beginning.

The rest of Book 1 begins Book 2 - annoying trick!

Still annoyed that the author/publisher chose to leave Book 1 unfinished, forcing the listener to buy Book 2 to finish Book 1.

Simply unethical and greedy decision by the author / publisher.

I won't buy another book from Andrew Mayne in the future.

This second book wasn't that great either. Once Book 1's ending was done, the character's story resumed after some weeks rest and went off on a different story line. The story line dragged a bit and I was tempted to return the book but hung in there.

This book is a bit "cheesy" and over-the-top with Macgyver-ish solutions. The writing lacks sophistication and depth and layers, so I'd put this at Young Adult level.

And, that's it for this unethical sales-ploy-using author/publisher. This is great for people who like to use 2 credits to finish one book.

Quickly becoming my favorite author

Andrew Mayne weaves a spellbinding space tale with the tiniest little hint of a romance that helps to drive the main characters ethics. A fun read from start to finish, though you'll definitely want to read/listen to Station Breaker first as it picks up right where SB leaves off. Highest recommendation.

if you like the..

If you like the work Andrew Mayne dues on his Weird Things podcast with Justin Robert Young and Brian Brushwood, then there is no chance you will not love this book. Mayne hits another home run into orbit with the second Station Breaker!

Great characters!

I enjoyed listening to this book. The narrator was very good with few exceptions. The main characters were very likable. The story was imaginative and interesting if implausible in places. Stories like this can sometimes be implausible, so I don’t hold that against this book. The author really needs to work on his medical research. There are a lot of medical inaccuracies that are annoying! I do recommend this book and author and will be reading or listening to more of his titles. I also hope there will be more with the David Dixon character :)

First was great second was as great

If you could sum up Orbital in three words, what would they be?

This Book is Great

What other book might you compare Orbital to and why?

Station Breaker Book 1

Which character – as performed by Kyle McCarley – was your favorite?

Dickson which is the main Character but all the Voices are great

Did you have an extreme reaction to this book? Did it make you laugh or cry?

Multiple times I was Shocked and worried for the characters. And a few times I thought he was going to get laid

Another great story by Andrew Mayne

Great story. Looking forward to another exciting adventure in this series. Mayne's attention to detail is astonishing. I have officially read every Mayne book published and I look forward to anything he writes in the future.
