(And just in case that wasn't clear enough: I received a free copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.)
This one starts a few years after the last book ends and we learn that Marcy isn't comfortable with her hero status. Apparently, neither is someone else because it soon becomes pretty clear that someone is trying to kill her. This leads to her going on an exploratory mission with her good pals Quigbat and Zort, which turns into yet another misadventure.
Like the last book, the story is quirky and fun, but loaded with fast paced adventure. Unlike the last book, there's a bit more depth to this one, an addition that I found to be a rather pleasant surprise. There's also a smidgen of romance and we earthlings learn that a certain North American landmark has some unearthly origins.
What I loved most was that while the tone was light and this story continues to be in that can be enjoyed by anyone, it was definitely a sci-fi novel. From the descriptions of piloting the ships to the introduction of a new and complex energy source, there was definitely some science-y bulk added to this one.
A very strong follow-up and I can't wait to find out if there's another adventure.
