Summary

There's a reason she swore she'd never go back

Four years after Ivy "Holly" Wood's dramatic escape from Terradox, the once-hostile romosphere's new hotel and leisure development is thriving.

But while adventurous guests from all corners of the Earth marvel at the awesome wonders of the Terradox Resort's artificial environment, a deadly threat looms large.

When it becomes clear that an unimaginable risk offers the only hope of preventing an unimaginable disaster, responsibility for the safety of the many innocent civilians stranded on Terradox once again falls on Holly's shoulders.

A familiar crew joins Holly in her task, dismissed by others as a suicide mission, but the alarming view from their Karrier's window might soon make them wish they hadn't.

Compared to this, surviving the untamed Terradox wilderness was a walk in the park....

The Fall of Terradox is a direct sequel to Terradox, from the author of the international best seller and Audible.com Best of 2016 finalist Not Alone.

Nowhere near as good as the previous book

The first Terradox book was pretty good, I thought (but not as good as Contact.) It had a certain mystery about it and, even though the nice-guy-turned-bad-guy thing which was central to the plot isn't a new idea in fiction, it was well executed.

The problem with this book is that there isn't really anything new in it. Although the action takes place on space stations, the story could equally well have been set on the high seas, or an isolated island. For a science fiction novel the science is pretty questionable, and the plot isn't strong enough to disguise that fact, as it was in the first book.

This isn't a bad book by any means, but if I'm going to pay seven quid to borrow a book, which is what Audible's service amounts to, it's got to be a whole letter better than "not a bad book."

Good idea, badly presented

Very good idea/story, but badly presented. The story develops directly, but the emotional/intrigue/human relation and description is serious OVERKILL in this book. There are way too much of that and way too few of story development. I'd say it is more of a drama book, than sci-fi. The end is simply... speechless.. 1 hour of nothing.. such a waste of time.
