Publisher's 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.

Fantastic.

Ms. O'Keefe has surpassed herself with this sequel. I was absolutely riveted from start to finish and finished the whole thing in 2 days. I actually ended up pausing this book and had to go back and listen to Velocity Weapon again to get caught up in the story and I highly recommend other listeners do the same. It will add depth to the story that you won't get through simple recall. What I love about the author is she doesn't go for those annoyingly predictable cliff hanger chapters where you end up leaving each of your main characters amid some dramatic climax scene then start the next chapter doing the same to a different character. It was a pleasant surprise to continue with the current character's drama in the next chapter. I also really appreciated how she addressed gender neutrality and used their pronoun without any rolling out of the cliched personality/dialogue/physical appearance tropes that usually accompany non cis gender characters and just normalised them. Can't wait for book 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.

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.
