When you find yourself in a hole, stop digging.Commodore Jack Romanoff and his merry band of ragtag Navy rejects—skilled yet young war reenactors, a rescued Navy crew, and a Confederation spy—have rescued more than two hundred civilian ships and escaped a massacre in a battleship over two centuries old.Too bad they blew a fusion plant doing it.Trapped in a deserted system with the Locusts after them, they have a hard deadline to sort out the mess. Standing in the way is an arrogant Navy captain unwilling to bend his stiff neck, and the man’s unexpected—and unwelcome—allies.Yet clever friends and shocking secrets may still turn the tide.Jack and his crew have only one chance to get it right. To do that, he must bind them all together with bonds of blood.
It’s always nice when the second novel in the series is better than the first. It still has issues such as all those civilian ships include cats but no children? And where are all these civilians? Were they all drafted? But the action was great, and the plot twists were interesting. I’ll read the next one.
J.N Chaney and Terry Mixon have done it again. Just as with the first book the two authors have once again released a book that is filled with space ships, combat, political, and criminal intrigue. This book will keep you reading to the last page. Your only regret will be having to wait for the next book.
I like this series and I am looking forward to the next book in this series. The characters are well developed and the author has a good story line.
Series is really getting good. This often feels like I’m reading science fiction from decades ago; yet, it has a very fresh feel. Plenty of action keeps it rolling along. But there are moments when it is really about the people. The ceremony honoring the battle dead moved me to tears. Well done.
