The second entry in the Star Wars-inspired series that Nerdist calls "the next big thing."
Though the ragtag group of misfits known as the Black Star Renegades won a decisive battle by destroying Ga Halle’s War Hammer, the war is far from over. In response to losing the crown jewel of its fleet, the evil Praxis empire has vengefully reinforced its tyranny across the galaxy--but its rule won't be had so easily. Led by hotshot pilot Kira Sen, a growing rebel force stands in the way of Praxis’s might. Not only do they possess the will to fight for galactic freedom, they also possess the ultimate ace in the hole: The mythical Rokura, the most powerful weapon ever known.
Too bad Cade Sura hasn’t figured out to use it.
As Kira wages an increasingly bloody war against Praxis, Cade is left with only once choice: With Ga Halle scouring every star system for the coveted weapon, Cade embarks on a dangerous mission into uncharted space to discover the Rokura’s origins. Only then can he learn how it can be wielded. Because if he doesn’t, all hope for the galaxy might be lost.
In this stirring sequel to Black Star Renegades, reluctant hero Cade Sura and Kira Sen, the heroic daughter of a Praxian overlord, fight to expand their rebellion following a surprise victory against the evil Praxians. Although Cade has the legendary weapon called the Rokura, he doubts his ability to wield it without falling under its control. As he agonizes, the villainous Ga Halle plots to take it for herself. While Kira sets off on a secret mission that brings her face-to-face with the father who betrayed her and her mother, Cade seeks a way to learn more about the Rokura and its ancient maker, the mysterious Wu-Xia. Moreci's story wears its antecedents proudly, from the Star Wars crawl style opening and flashback prologue to the talk of controlling mystical energies by truly knowing oneself. The novel is an even blend of high-energy battle scenes and trenchant moments of character interaction as heroes dive into "fighting for what believe is right." Returning readers and fans of intrigues and battles will enjoy this brisk space adventure series.
