Editorial Reviews

Review

"Martinez's writing style improved dramatically since the last book and I look forward to seeing how it will continue to evolve in the next book.... It was a great adventure tale that combined elements of a spy thriller with that of a space opera, with a bittersweet ending reminiscent of The Empire Strikes Back. I recommend Enceladus, and the series as a whole." -- Matt Mitrovich, Amazing Stories


“The sequel continues the first novel’s mix of alchemy, intrigue, mystery, science fiction and high adventure into an entertaining package. Mike Martinez’s The Enceladus Crisis avoids some of the pitfalls that many second novels face by trying some new things, and giving us some new facets of his interesting universe. . . . A follow up that manages to improve on the first in significant ways.”
—SF Signal

"A lot to love here, especially in the sections of the novel set in 1798, with their odd combination of historical fiction and pulp SF."
—Stefan Raets, Tor.com

“Riveting . . . a uniquely imaginative science fantasy tale.”
Publishers Weekly

"Martinez set a high bar for himself in his debut novel; could his sophomore effort live up to the expectations it established? It has and then some. His characters and their relationships are even more fully flushed out, his dialogue, description of action (I love the first battle scene) and overall handling of the narrative is, if anything, tighter and better."
Joe's Geek Fest

"This is a smart, well-written and outstanding series; no sophomore slump here, Book Two is even more exciting than the first one."
The Qwillery

"This isn’t steampunk, okay? This is something new and unique and completely entertaining. Hard science fiction in one corner and Alchemy in the other. And the best part is when the worlds and characters come together (in both books) . . . you’re in for a wild ride.”
GeekDad

I gushed over Michael J. Martinez's The Daedalus Incident. Yes, I confess to being a bit rabid in my love for the book and becoming a raving fanboy of Mr. Martinez' writing. Now, I was waiting, to borrow a phrase from the Bard, "...with bated breath, and whispring humblenesse" for its sequel, The Enceladus Crisis. Truth be told, however, I was also waiting with a little trepidation. After all, Mr. Martinez set a high bar for himself in his debut novel; could his sophomore effort live up to the expectations it established? It has and then some. His characters and their relationships are even more fully flushed out, his dialog , description of action (I love the first battle scene) and overall handling of the narrative is, if anything, tighter and better.

I started The Enceladus Crisis yesterday and finished it this afternoon. That good.

The Enceladus Crisis contains Napoleon, ancient Martian warrior gods, alchemical galleons, Star Wars and Firefly references in the 22nd century, ancient Egypt, the Rosetta Stone, interplanetary exploration, zombies, and a handful of sequences that feel straight out of an Indiana Jones movie. It is awesome. It is action-packed and exciting and creative and fresh and original (no, seriously, space galleons powered by alchemy) and unlike the first one he’s clearly got a contract for another book now so it ends by nicely setting up the next book without feeling like it was written as the middle book of a trilogy. In fact, I’d say you don’t have to have read Daedalus to enjoy Enceladus; I read it nearly a year ago and I’ve literally read a hundred fifty or so books since then, so my recollection of finer details is not great.

Two thumbs up. Go check it out.

This sequel is probably better than the initial book, and both employ a unique approach to combining historical and futuristic science fiction. The characters are believable and well developed and leave the reader with a sense of wanting to learn more about what could happen when two dimensions and two chonological times become aware of each other. Who can and will teach the other about what is important in their respective existence? How might they work together to avoid mistakes in both futures that will make life better and more rewarding? How could the errors of the past in one create problems for the future in the other? All in all, a fun read!

This is a very satisfying sequel to The Daedalus Incident! I started reading it with some trepidation, but our intrepid author did not fail me! I will pre-order the third book as soon as I know it's available - that is the highest compliment I can offer any author.

A nice series. It takes a bit of getting used to all the "time-jumps" but if you are really into the story you're just curious when/if all the dramatis personae will meet. I look forward to book Three !

A very interesting book with pirates and aliens sailing the solar seas across the solar system and through time. Fast paced with intrigue and plot galore.

Looking forward to the rest of the series. It's an interesting way to combine 2 very different stories into one plot.

Format: Paperback
This novel didn't sound like anything I would like. I love sci-fi and fantasy, but find that most authors can't merge the two into anything readable. That is not the case with this book. It has fantastic character development and a great plot. Or should I say two plots. I find it almost impossible to put this book down. I also almost passed it up when I saw that it was book two of a series. Not to worry, since it can stand alone on its own merits. I'm just very glad that I pulled this book off a shelf and gave it a chance. There is a third in the series on the way, and I look forward to another great read. Many thanks to the author for hours of reading pleasure.
