Publisher's Summary

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.

Excellent follow up/conclusion (?)

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.

Another Great story

Really enjoyed this second book. The battles get more intense, the characters continue to grow, and the War Begins.

Excellent series. Is the 3rd book imminent?

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?

Masterfully Executed

This second installment was phenomenal. The absolutely immersive interstellar saga had me so engrossed that I can hardly wait for part three.

Excellent presentation, good plot

good example of classical Space Opera, without introducing much in the way that is new or challenging. Excellent presentation by the voice artist

Fascinating story line

This was an incredibly addictive read. This is not a "fast read", however the author puts so much background into the story that it totally pulls you in and keeps you wanting to read on, much to the detriment of my sleep while enjoying the story. Like it a lot.

An excellent sequel

Another entertaining read/listen. I think I enjoyed the first one a tiny bit more if only because of all the crazy, unbelievable (yet exciting) things Tanner manages to do in it, but this one was exciting, as well. Glad I gave this series a try. Do not read this one without having read the first in the series. This one pretty much picks up where the last left off. Excellently narrated. Well worth an audible credit (or in my case, the cost of the kindle book and special whisper sync price of the audio was a steal).
