You cannot stop scrolling through the pages as Jarre is dragged into an intergalactic conspiracy. "The Tharnians are coming" he tries to warn Earth but they don't listen. He's no chicken little, these vicious creatures really are coming and he's about the only one who can stop them. I liked the fact Earth's government was corrupt, some of them even in cahoots with the Tharnians, like the truly evil Cudex. Other memorable characters exist in this universe like the Tharnian Piarn who becomes Jarre's ally. Unlike Jarre who has scruples, Piarn has none. Ethics aren't a problem for him when it comes to getting things done. Gate is also memorable, a young hotshot pilot who think he's invincible and God's gift to women, no amounts of slaps convince him otherwise. Some of the ideas we have seen before, such as ragtag humans who have formed a Confederation, women mechanics, a race of super robots, a space station run by pirates, a slick bounty hunter, an estranged father, a distant son, a sidekick with a drinking problem, and a love interest that's tough as nails. Still it is a blast while it lasts. Jarre does disappear for a while and we journey with his son, that was different. Also different is the ending - I liked it as Jarre confronts his dark side and faces an entity, cool showdown however it isn't resolved if we are to assume the worst, it's game over for Jarre. No closure but it's had me wondering what happened for days. Only issues I didn't like, some people you believe dead keep coming back and some sections ended suddenly. Engaging book, download and enjoy.

Author of the Day

J.T. Brannan
When J.T. Brannan started writing a book about a "secret agent" doing a job for the US government, he had no idea that this was going to be the start of a bestselling series. Today, his Mark Cole books are extremely popular and Brannan a full-time writer (when he isn't teaching martial arts). As our Author of the Day, Brannan reveals how James Bond inspired his work, talks about his years in the Army and gives us a sneak peek in what he is working on right now.
