If a little bit of knowledge can be dangerous, then too much knowledge could be deadly!
In this fast-paced sequel to the novel Rome's Revolution, Rei, Rome and MINIMCOM, the 35th century starship that was once a computer, find themselves under attack from all quarters.
Why? The Ark Lords were the second-most heinous individuals to ever walk the Earth. The first were those responsible for the death of nine billion people - The Great Dying - back in 2081 AD. Who was behind this horrific act has remained a mystery, until the day Rome accidentally stumbles across the answer to the 1400-year-old secret. Merely possessing this knowledge threatens not only Rome's family, but every man, woman and child throughout the galaxy. Those protecting the secret will stop at nothing to make sure their endgame is secure.
Rei, Rome and MINIMCOM embark on a desperate race through three star systems to try to prevent The Ark Lords from rising again. At stake is nothing less than the fate of all of mankind!
Rich, fast-moving scifi tale
Very professional and accessible entertaining novel. Continues the saga of Rome and Rei as they attempt to solve yet another crisis. Very interesting little historical novel interwoven into the story. It is relevant and moves the story along yet it harkens back to an early age when mankind was trying to recover from the Great Dying. Plenty of humorous moments with some tender ones too. Once the story takes off, it doesn't stop until the very last page. MINIMCOM is awesome! If you like science, action and adventure, this book is for you. I would say that it helps if you read Rome's Revolution first but is not absolutely required. Highly recommended!
Very entertaining, fast-moving hard sci-fi
I loved this book! All the characters are back including my favorite, MINIMCOM. The trouble starts almost right away and the main characters have to use all their wits to save mankind. Again. Although the book stands on its own merits, since it is a sequel, you'd probably get more out of it if you read Rome's Revolution first. If you like your science fiction hard and fast, this is the book for you!
