Summary

The fate of the galaxy is on the line in the second book of this gripping, visionary space opera by award-winning author Megan E. O'Keefe. 

Sanda and Tomas are fleeing for their lives after letting the most dangerous smartship in the universe run free. Now, unsure of who to trust, Sanda knows only one thing for certain - to be able to save herself from becoming a pawn of greater powers, she needs to discover the secret of the coordinates hidden in her skull.

But getting to those coordinates is a problem she can't solve alone. They exist beyond a dead gate - a sealed-off Casimir gate that opens up into a dead-end system. And there's a dangerous new player who wants the coordinates for their own ends - a player who will happily crack her open to get them.

Dazzling space battles, intergalactic politics and rogue AI collide in the follow-up to the Philip K. Dick Award-shortlisted Velocity Weapon.

Very much book 2

An enjoyable romp across star systems. No shocking twists this time just more machinations of the villain revealed and setting up things for book 3.

Narration was good.

Not entirely coherent but a great listen

The story doesn’t fully hang together, there are gaps and jumps but despite this, a well written book, well performed. Not everyone will like it but I certainly did and I’ve preordered the final instalment.

Can't wait for the next book!

The plot thickens, lots of twists and turns and I also like that they've used the same narrator as from the first book.
Here and there a few recording repeats (a sentence or two).
Definitely recommend!

Probably better to read than to listen to.

The performance is technically brilliant. Consistent use of accents and tone for each character. The story is complex and layered.
The difficulty I find is that unlike books I can't flip back to review a point that didn't sink in first time. The 20 second rewind is too random.

Surprisingly good

This was better than the first book I think but I had to listen to it again before starting this one good intelligent sifi thriller that keeps the listener guessing well performed. Hope we don’t have to wait long for the next instalment. If you like the expanse books you will like these not saying there the same story but the same thought and detail

Fantastic space adventure.

Strong and well developed characters with a thoroughly engaging, twisting story. Some good laughs too. Cannot wait for part 3.

easy storyline, engaging enough to keep interested

the narrator does a good job.

The storyline is not overly technical making it a nice easy listen that is enjoyable.
