A brief four months have passed since the ending of Book One. This book was a nice segway into an all-encompassing battle. The characters have remained intriguing and snarky.
Keeping with the Space Opera feel the author still led us into an environment with a lot more variety in creatures, some who are not that nice. There are a few surprises and twists that help keep the reader trying to figure out what is going to happen next.
There was a slight lull in the story and some of the pranks seemed a little forced. However, that may have been me as a reader or the author moving us along to what I hope will be an epic Book Three. Even so, I enjoy the characters and conversations and eagerly look forward to Book 3.
The sequel to The Crimson Deathbringer, an Amazon best-selling sci-fi novel with more than 150 five-star reviews.
Kanoor has fallen.
Despite their crushing defeat on Earth, the Xortaags are back, and with a genius plan that can be the brainchild of only one man in the galaxy, they’ve conquered the Akakie homeworld.
Not being the forgive-and-forget types, the Xortaags have chosen Earth as their next target. Moreover, if they have enough time to reverse-engineer all the advanced technology they found on Kanoor, they will rule the universe forever. Now it’s up to Jim, Kurt, Oksana and Tarq to save not only humanity but also every single sentient species in the universe.
And to make things worse, an even more sinister threat (yeah, more sinister than the Xortaags) is emerging in the background.
You thought the stakes were high in The Crimson Deathbringer (with Earth conquered and 700 million people killed)? You ain’t seen nothing yet!
