Summary

Their mission was to recover an ancient derelict from the farthest edge of the Sol system. What they've found could spell the end of humanity.

Trapped on the Mira, Corporal Kalimura must lead her squad of injured marines to safety. But, aboard the derelict, every shadow is a possible threat, and around every corner lurks another hazard. Without life support or gravity, and only their suit lights to see by, they must explore the ancient wreck to find a way to communicate with their ship and escape their hellish prison.

The remaining crew aboard S&R Black struggle to tow Mira out of the path of an incoming Kuiper Belt Object only to realize that the non-sentient hazard is the least of their worries.

Derelict: Tomb, book two of the Derelict Saga, is an action-packed mashup of suspense, military sci-fi, and space-opera horror that will keep you guessing.

Amatuer military sci-fi writing - avoid

I don't even know where to begin... the writer clearly didn't do any research on the distances, speeds and scales of outter space. He wrote as if 600 meters per second (2160 kilometers per hour) was a fast speed for a ship in space, or 60 mps was fast for a futuristic railgun rifle projectile (bb guns fire faster than this), in an era hundreds of years in the future. This is just the most blatant of near constant absurd inaccuracies in the science and concepts of space sci-fi.

The entire book series was full of sophomoric language, allegories and descriptions. It was the worst sci-fi book series I've ever read. I can't even judge the narrator because of how horrible the writing was. I will avoid this author like the plague

Sequel apply here!

The first book in the series built on characters and their slow build up as they trek through space. This expands on that formula with a more claustrophobic backdrop feeling to it. Book one gave you the feel of infinite and now in two they have nowhere to go. We learn more about the characters histories without it feeling shoehorned in. The action ramps up when they begin to discover what we share the Galaxy with and the aren't friendly. As stated in other reviews, this is a part of a bigger story and doesn't have a beginning, middle, end as normal. Instead, this has the feeling of "the middle", leaving me to believe that book 3(the final book?) will be heavy on the action as it wraps up the tale. This format style isn't for everyone, but for those that look past one large book split into three, there is a good story to read(hear).

Although not my normal genre, IM HOOKED

Paul Cooley has spun yet another tale that grips you by the shirt collar and drags you along. Although I am a die hard Horror fan, Space Marines didn't fit into my life very well. Until I actually listened to it. This is the second book in the series, and just like I was for The Black, I am in a hurry for more. The marines are people I can relate to, having been around military all my life. The problems and solutions that they come up with are easy to believe, and freaky. The monsters are not something you want to meet in real life. Much like his other stories, this one makes you want to crawl under the blankets and hope you are save!

Cliffhanger

Great book can't wait for the next one. This was awesome. I couldn't stop listening. I just wish the final book was out so I could find the series.

Just Awesome!

Where does Derelict: Tomb rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

At the top.

Who was your favorite character and why?

Toss up between Dickerson and Carbonaro. They are both really funny with their quips.

What about Paul E. Cooley’s performance did you like?

Everything.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

Absolutely!

Any additional comments?

Only drawback was that it ended too soon. I was so invested in listening that I wasn't expecting the book to end when it did. I wanted more chapters!
