Publisher's Summary

The Messenger must prepare for war.

With the Archetype damaged, Dash and his crew will need more than a quick fix to prepare for what's coming. 

A secret facility known only as the Forge lies in cold sleep, built by the Unseen for the greatest war in history. Dash has no idea what awaits him there, but he hopes to find some kind of advantage in the war that is to come. 

Meanwhile, on a distant world, an ancient order of monks protects a long-buried secret. They have guarded it for centuries, all in the hope that someday the Messenger might come and relieve them of their task. 

Dash has answered that call...and he will not be denied.

great job again with the book. I love it

you feel like Dash is an Idoit by not using the weapons he has to fight because he thinks there useless for fighting mechs even though he's never fought one so he just punches it. then when that fails he uses the weapons he has and it kills it with 1 slice.

A Quality Drop

Quality drop off in this second book, a Mech that is not so much of a kick ass mech. Dash clearly still cannot see the waaay bigger picture and it not actively recruiting a army to help him or even letting the galactic police know something is up. Because other worlds would want to fking know some beings out there are hell bent on destroying the universe. Maybe some civilizations would want to help out. But hey, stick with your hand full of people and a a busted ass Mech that seems not to evade any god damn thing tossed at it and is nearly a busted ass robot after every little fight that is NOT the Golden.

The sequel carries forward!

Like the previous book, this one is an exciting and action packed romp through space. The mecha storyline is fun and engaging, and it's refreshing to have an optimistic hero at the center of it. I look forward to the next!

Book 2 declines into emotion based rants

The focus of the story becomes the Dash characters purely emotional response to every plot complication. Dash is defined as character unable to comprehend anything technical or relating to physics. His Cussing and yelling with imaginary macho bravado is used as filler wherever possible..

Conversations make this book drag

I had to skip over portions of this book because the conversations between the characters and with themselves in situations where they shouldn't be talking as much as they do made the action drag on to the point where the exciting parts of the book were pretty boring. The decisions that are made by some of the characters seem to only add to the book length instead of adding any sense of anticipation or progression. It was hard for me to care much about the characters. Overall I was more frustrated listening to this book than entertained. The story concept is great but the execution is lacking.

Exceedingly Short

For the price I would expect much more. Was one book split into 5 books?

enjoyable follow up book

The second book continues to expand the role of the messenger. His crew/team is growing, and he has his first meeting with the golden.

Nice romp trying to save the universe

I enjoyed this, but preferred the 1st book. Great for young adults, (all ages, really) that like to dream of saving the world.

It was ok..

It was ok, it could have been a bit more unpredictable. It wasn’t annoying like a lot of audible fantasy books. I liked the general idea.

Great book full of adventure. Best thing is no PC rubbish pushing political propaganda that is too common in literature these days..
