In the second installment of the award-winning Horizon series, Dr. Caeli Crys returns to her war-torn world to fight for those she left behind.
Almagest, Caeli’s home, stands on the brink of revolution. Long hidden from the rest of the galaxy, the once-peaceful planet suffers under a regime that grows more violent and oppressive by the day. Marcus, Almagest’s dictator, is building an arsenal of alien weaponry by selling empathic children into slavery. A resistance has risen, but they are outmanned, outgunned, and in hiding.
Joined by Commander Derek Markham and his elite squadron of operatives, Caeli embarks on a dangerous mission to find the Resistance, rescue her captive people, and save her civilization from destruction.
This is the second book in the Horizon. See the review for Book 1: Horizon by clicking on the title.
The world building in the first book really paid off in Book 2. I enjoyed the book and I could just jump right in on the action. The crew was amazing and definitely gave off a Firefly (Joss Weadon) vibe. The conflict in the first book is amped up in the second novel and climaxes explosively. With messages of freedom and tyranny strewn through the book there is obvious social commentary. Overall, a great sequel to the first book that played off of the world building and conflict introduced in Book 1.
