Oh the humanity! This was SO Good! The story was action packed and so full of explanation. Filled with bigger and smarter monsters Orbs II: Stranded was a pleaser!
The team is tired of reacting to the attacks of the Organics and decide to take themselves of a few missions. Discoveries are made, inner-strengths are formed and lives are sacrificed and even lost. Can they fight, or possibly even defeat the alien creatures? And will they find out who's working the worker beings?
I'm almost sad this series is about to end! It's amazing, the creatures, the action, everything about this book says Share with the world! You've gotta check it out.

Joining Dr. Winston in the Cheyenne Mountain Biosphere were Saafi Yool, engineer, Dr. Emanuel Rodriguez, biologist, Dr. Holly Brown, psychiatrist, and Timothy Roberts, programmer. Sophie knew Emanuel from the team investigating the Solar Storms of 2055, when a huge Coronal Mass Ejection baked and irradiated 15% of the Earth's surface. Investigation into the event showed that magnetic forces originating on Mars had guided and intensified the CME. The results of that investigation had led to the development of the Secundo Casu and the Mars project.
Conditions quickly began to deteriorate as they lost contact to the outside world. Something caused the deaths of the livestock. They seemed to go crazy, battering themselves to death trying to escape their confinement. Something was driving the animals to madness. Investigations outside indicated that an alien force or presence was stealing the water from the world's surface. Thousands of glowing blue orbs littered the ground, each orb proving to contain a human or animal being drained of the water in their bodies. Strange alien creatures were processing the harvest of water as the planet's surface was turned into an arid wasteland. The Earth is losing it's future to the invaders, and everything is not going well.
If you haven't read Orbs I, then stop here because spoilers are ahead. You should really read Orbs I before continuing. Besides missing a lot of the story, you will miss your first opportunity to meet some really terrific characters. By now you should be familiar with little quirks in some of the characters, you should know who's seeing who and who wants to know who a lot better, LOL and you should know who has joined our Mars Mission training Biosphere.
Using the reverse magnetic pulse generator they were given by Luke Williard, Sophie was able to shield the Biosphere from the Organic's sensors. Their crew had grown by the addition four children and three marines. And after the Biosphere AI told them she had been in contact with another survivor - Alex Wagner, sole survivor of the Edwards AFB Biosphere. Sophie knew then that their mission was a lie! The Biospheres were survival shelters. They were never going to go to Mars!
With surprising twists and unexpected developments, the storyline is character driven. And the characters deal with fear and frustration as they fight for the survival of the Earth. This is proving to be a remarkable series. I heartily recommend this dystopian future!
What a ride!! I had to take several deep breaths when I finished this because it took my breath away with it's relentless pace. Absolutely non stop!!! It's not just the action that was non stop, it was also the emotions I had while reading this. I think I went through them all!!
The plot was fast paced and exciting. We get to see a little more of the invasion through different eyes and get a broader scope of what the aliens are and what they want. This is where the author excels in this book I think, his imagination is amazing and the world he has created is fantastic.... extremely scary, but fantastic! The different aliens he created were awesome and his descriptive writing and attention to detail, brings them to life in a way that was astounding. I could picture every creepy spider, worm or dinosaur like creature he wrote!!
The author isn't afraid to get rid of characters! We lose some, but we gain some too. The two boys are awesome, and I'm so glad we get their back story in a different short story, because otherwise it would have made them feel incomplete. On finishing this one, I read both White Sands and Red Sands and it brought the boys to life! Alex is another new character and his addition is great. He is at the end of his rope and ready to finish it all, but is picked up by some other survivours. I'm intrigued with him and can't wait to see more about him!
In all, this second book was amazing. The author has really opened up the world and we are starting to see a bigger picture. We get some answers as to how this happened with no warning. We also see tensions rising in the biosphere and people are starting to lose it being cooped up so long. I'm so glad I have book 3 to read straight after this one!! Brilliant series.
