After a small hiccup with the book I bought, which the author graciously corrected for me, I just finished reading it.

I must say I enjoyed it just as much as the first book of the series. In my opinion, too many sequels simply continuing the story without anything really new, as odd as that may sound.

But this one, while continuing the story, introduces new ideas, aliens and some "gee-whiz technology" which, again in my opinion, is what makes a sequel interesting and worth reading. I was so caught up in the story that the conclusion of the book was like running full speed into a brick wall. I wanted more, darn it!

The only thing that disappointed me is that I really, really wanted someone to backhand Sasha across the room. (Sigh) Maybe in book 3.

These are fun reads and they move very fast. There is just enough plot development and the characters are believable. I like the science, there are no major plot holes, and it all works out very well in the end. Really, there a lot of fun. I highly recommend.

This is a great sequel to the first book in this trilogy. It's a fun read and flows unbelievably smooth. This is by far one of the easiest reads I have read and I love it for that. You never have to re-read a sentence to comprehend it. The story follows where the last one left off and is action packed. J.D. has some great ideas going and some good character arcs even though this story is totally centered on one group. There isn't any "side story" going on which is this books strength and only weakness. You never get the enemy or antagonist POV but he still manages to keep the story interesting. I can't say there was much of a cliffhanger but I'm anxious for a third book. Great job!............

(If I may suggest an idea for the third book J.D. It would be awesomely interesting if Jason and the gang have to rush to defend Earth).

Actually, this is the second in the series - 2012 Lundar Contact is the "prequel". The plot is simple and unrealistic - "smartest in the room" brave humans walk in and take over an alien spaceship world, and start a war with the owners to prevent them from finding Earth. Simple twists like a "neural net" to rationalize how the humans can overcome the evil robotic aliens' advanced technologies. Book's strong point is the combat narrative, which is fun. For "throwaway" reading on an airplane flight, this is excellent. Not competitive with Asimov or Herbert for plot lines, but keeps you busy, and enjoyable.

Once again, JD Clarke has written an interesting space opera adventure that kept the pages turning. The main characters are really in it deep by the end of this book, having decided to take on a galactic empire pretty much by themselves. I'm enjoying how people act like people in this series as well. Some truly are good people, some are irredeemably selfish (and usually end up getting themselves killed), and most are in between. Very few of them see the "big" picture and they feel like they're just trying to live their lives the best they can...which is of course impossible because they're now being hunted by the machines of a galactic empire. I'm looking forward to seeing how all this turns out - there's a few clues already as to how things could go, but the author doesn't always do the obvious thing, so I'm hesitant to say I know anything of what's coming. And that's what makes a book worth reading :)

What's most interesting to me, however, is where the author is headed with respect to dialogue between machine intelligence and organics. These are not Cylons - they truly don't understand human behavior most of the time...nor do they care. They act like computers in that their thought patterns really are kind of alien. Easy to predict in many ways, but surprising in others. I'm fascinated to see how the plotline with Sybil and the attempts to actually create a lasting peace through understanding by the main character will go. In most books, I would think that it's obvious and will lead to the happy ending. In this series, I'm really not sure. I'm definitely kept guessing.

Keep up the good work, JD, and I'm looking forward to book 3.

This sequel was a quick enjoyable read for me. The knowledge of science, biology and astrophysics I learned from this book make me king nerd at my house. The characters are growing more confident and stronger while taking charge of their destiny and situation they are in. Once again Mr. JD Clarke kept me entertained an I am ready to purchase book three as soon as I comes out.

With a series book such as this, of course if you are reading it, you liked and were caught up in the story and characters and wanted to follow to see what happened next. This book was as good as the others in the series and I enjoyed the read.

This is not great work of literature and doesn't pretend to be. The characters are pretty stock standard for this kind of space western, and the light vs darkeness plot all very predictable. But it is a decent enough read and well worth a look.
