“Hi, I’m Commander Geri Rochelle, Veraxis ID Number 85273, Consortium Agent.”
“When I’m not caring for my baby daughter, Alis, or running a super-secret spy mission for the Consortium forces, I’m reading science-fiction!”
“Each month I’ll release a new pick with review, a book I’ve personally enjoyed”
Here’s my second pick for December.
Christian Kallias’ Fury to The Stars is the second in the Universe in Flames series.
This is some SERIOUS bang for your buck, if you pick up the box set! That’s ten, yes, T-E-N books for $.99
(99 cents currently, but I’d move fast if I were you, I don’t know if that’s just a sale)
Book one is, at it’s heart, it’s a tale of good versus evil. This doesn’t much change with the introduction of book 2. The pace and character depth are maintained from the first book, but boy do the characters get a power-up! I’d recommend the box-set, it’s seriously a lot of content!
Author’s Synopsis for Book 2, Fury to the Stars:
Two brothers. One Destiny. A Fractured Universe.
With Commander Sarah Kepler imprisoned and being brutally interrogated by her captor, Chase learns more about his birthright powers as he tries to locate her. It soon becomes clear that he must learn to control them or he could end up destroying the very universe he’s trying to save.
Meanwhile, the Destiny battle group is being escorted to Droxia to answer for their actions, unaware of what awaits them upon their arrival. On Earth, humanity licks its wounds when some unforeseen acts of terror threaten the newly found peace that the fresh and frail Alliance brought along with their arrival.
An unexpected ally surfaces with information that could tip the balance of power for the first time since the Obsidian Empire obliterated the Star Alliance. But considering his past actions, can he really be trusted?
Chase is determined to save his beloved Sarah at all cost, but with the fate of the universe in the balance and his overwhelming powers quickly coming to the surface, his task is not an easy one. Neither is the growing burden of responsibility already eating at his soul.
Choices and sacrifices are to be made. But will Chase be able to live with the consequences of his actions?
