Publisher's Summary

Rade and his team of ex-military personnel pursue a Phant to a destroyed world on the far side of the galaxy.

They soon discover the planet isn't as dead as they believed. Their target hides within a massive nest inhabited by aliens appearing to belong to Tech Class I - barely out of the stone ages. Rade elects to go ahead with the operation. The team enters the nest to capture the prey.

But what begins as a simple infiltration and extraction mission soon turns into a living nightmare.

Trapped beneath an alien world, surrounded by hostile lifeforms, and fighting for their very lives, Rade and his team quickly realize the roles have reversed. They are no longer the hunters.

Instead, they have become the prey.

Better than the first

After the first book I was unsure if I would continue the series because it was a hard "meh" but I got this after getting a jones for sci-fi.

There's a hilarious part where the book goes more meta than a D&D player, and one part with such well written dialog that I, a 33 year old man, got choked up at work. It's a significant step up from the first imo and guarantees that I continue.

With that said, it isn't perfect. The narrator is hit or miss and seems to mispronounce words, although I cant tell without any sort of print to reference. The story still has a hundred and one cliches and the plot armor is reaaaalllll. A solid 4/5 all around

Like 70s Star Trek, but only the bad parts

Bad story, again:
Even with all books in this series being free, I can’t recommend this. This story follows the same path as book 1, with a shallow plot supported by one dimensional characters and juvenile dialogue. The Argonauts enter the tunneled lair of insectoid aliens (again), enemy Phants take over some of the team’s bodies/A.I.s (again), The enemy Phants are beyond evil, for no reason, and stop to explain how they got the drop on the Argonauts, because that’s what evil aliens, and bond-villains- do (again). Rade and Shaw have “deep” thoughts about their relationship (again... only this time it’s talk about babies, gag me). The climax tells us Rade is doomed- and poof- they figure out a solution and no one on the team dies (again).

Annoyingly stereotypical:
The Star Trek trope of the white MCs supported by one each of various gender/minorities got old a half-century ago... in the 70s. White Rade and Shaw are supported by (1) Bender, a future black soldier whose only contribution is wearing gold chains, telling lecherous jokes (3D printed p@ssies? Hilarious... not), and screaming “die, you b!tch!!” (2) the Asian who is a geeky tech guy trying to be cool by getting his d!ck pierced (really?!), and (3j the Navajo Tonto, er, I mean Tahoe who is big and spouts words of wisdom to his white kimosabe Rade. Speaking of bad Star Trek details, there’s a ridiculous bit where Kirk, I mean Rade, “services” an alien while being mind controlled... because it’s so plausible that gaseous/sludge aliens would find having human hankypanky appealing... riiiight. At least the “servicing” or “making love” scenes all fade to black; the single scene he described in book 1 was awkweird.

Keeps hitting us over the head with the title:
There are a half dozen times where different characters announce “we are prey,” or “the hunters have become the hunted.” Yes! We get it! In fact, I got it when I read the book title, and the book summary... it’s like this book was written for my fifth grader. Actually, my fifth grader wouldn’t have needed such sign posting either. Worse case of telling rather than showing, ever.

Luke Daniels: Best Ever Argonauts Narrator

*Spoiler Alert*
What makes Luke Daniels great is that EVERY character, no matter how small, gets a DIFFERENT voice and personality all to their own. Gotta hand it to Luke Daniels, this has to be the best performance for an audiobook I’ve ever heard. It’s motherfreakin’ incredible how he switches through all the different members of the Argonauts team on the fly, as they are having detailed, interesting, often hilarious, conversations. Of course this would all not be possible without having a rock solid story and characters to begin with: thanks Isaac Hooke! I personally loved how the story includes a collection of unique aliens, artificials, and tech, and their interactions with the Argonauts. Hooke manages to include an incredible array of things, and everything is jam packed together, but not rushed through in any way. Definitely the best Audible audiobook performance I’ve ever heard thus far!

Luke Daniels is amazing

I didn't love this one and, yes, at times I struggled to finish it. I wish this series didn't have the love story attached to it. I am not a fan of Shaun (girlfriend). She is a bit whiney. . . and clingy.

Incredibly repetitive

I really enjoyed the first book, I've got an hour and a half left of this one and I cannot bring myself to finish it. It has repeated the exact same plot sequence 7 or 8 times in this one book and become so repetitive it's nauseating.

Excellent sequel can’t wait to start the third book

The narrator and author did an excellent job on bringing this world to life and following each character as a progression to the world was intriguing and very engaging was extremely hard not to stop and each chapter left more to be desired and anticipation for the next chapter push me to read this book from start to finish

liked the mix of possible Science and Fantasy

Loved the thought put into how or why a problem was solved or needed to be avoided, even the safety codes in space.

o no dont threaten to shoot the girl...again

ok so this whole books plot revolves around dont shoot my girlfriend again. its ridiculous jumps whole group of spec ops mercs and point a gun at the mc girlfriend and everyone gives up there guns no fight at all cuz the will just get out of another hopeless situation again later. at what point do u call the bluff and the 5 other armed spec ops mercs in battle armor attack the one single enemy with s gun. nope gotta surrender. this plot devices is used 5 different times to the same effect, to the point I got 85% through the book and gave up on it cuz it happened again!
