On the surface, the galaxy seems peaceful. Humankind prospers from the Capital World to the far reaches of The Corridor. But to those who can see the signs, it's clear something is wrong. Long, dark fingers are pulling strings inside the military, making clandestine deals with enemy states, and fulfilling some dark design.
Calvin is an intelligence agent working for the Imperial government. He's young, his methods are unorthodox, but he gets results. So when a former military hero steals a warship and goes rogue--threatening to start a war, Calvin is sent to eliminate him.
But as he chases his prey across the stars, he realizes they are both pawns in a shadowy chess game that shakes kingdoms, divides empires, and threatens civilization everywhere. And if he is to uncover the mystery and expose the conspiracy he must confront--and embrace--the darkest elements of the galaxy and throw himself, his career, and everyone he loves into the line of fire.
An enticing read, built momentum quickly and did not stop.
Just finished the 3rd Instalment of The Phoenix Conspiracy. What a find. Stumbled upon the first book only 5 days ago. This only shows the gripping and exciting world you are cast in to while reading these books. Richard Sanders does a magnificent job of keeping you on the edge of your seat, only able to guess what is going to happen next. Twists and turns, expect the unexpected, fantastic writing. I simply cannot wait until the next instalment. I certainly cannot fathom what path it shall take. The only slightly negative feedback I would have for these books is simply that...minor, nitpicking scrutiny. A few spelling error's here and there. The rarity of the wrong word being used, however it is most definitely still readable. Again I re-affirm what I said previously, this series is definitely one of the best I have ever read. I am in love with the characters that have been created. We get to know each and every one of them. I just cannot wait to see what happens in the next instalment. The Phoenix War! Hopeful to see it out soon.
Edit: Having now finished the series and left my review on the final book, I would NOT recommend this series to anyone. I won’t go into all the details here as I have left a substantive review on book 7 however the series drastically goes down hill, the author clearly lost interest and thus his effort to impress his readers was lost.
What a great series. I have tried to contact the author to see if he is going to write any more books but have had no reply.i could not put these down! Stay with the first book as the second will answer your questions.
