The Phoenix Rising
The Phoenix Conspiracy, no. 2
As the most serious threat ever facing the galaxy now looms over them—weapons able to destroy stars—Calvin and his enterprising crew continue their mission to expose and eliminate the dark conspiracy that has taken root inside the Empire. Now a fugitive on the run, Calvin has no choice but to work alongside Raidan’s mysterious Organization. And accept help from the unlikeliest band of fair-weather friends, including a mysterious squad of Polarian soldiers, an ex-intelligence-operative from the Rotham Republic, and the ever elusive Tristan—whose truest motives are a closely guarded secret.
To make matters worse, Calvin is hunted mercilessly across the stars by Intel Wing’s top operative, Lafayette Nimoux, who is aided by a double-agent on Calvin’s own ship.
Meanwhile the sands of fortune are shifting within the Empire, upsetting the delicate political climate. Warships and civilian transports are vanishing without a trace and murders in the dark are going unnoticed. All eyes are fixed on Renora—a human colony that has been savagely attacked and thrown into civil war. The prime suspect behind the attack is none other than Princess Kalila Akira. All the dark signs are pointing to what could be the death of the Empire, and the end of human dominance in the galaxy.
You lost me.
After finishing the first two books I will say that they are very entertaining and well written, but I cannot accept the lack of ending to either book. It’s a shame because the story is quite thrilling and the fact that I have to read 7 books (spend $70) to get to the end is unfortunate, and a deal killer.
Look forward to more from the author.
This book was fantastic and if I dare say was more compelling than even the first book in the series. I could not put it down! The depth and personality with which the Sanders gives his characters is astounding. I have read each of his ebooks available and would love to see more from him. I will definitely keep my eye out for the next book in the series. Keep up the good work!!!
Sanders writes well and his narrative flows far better than that found in most scifi books. I work in the publishing business, and frequently read manuscript submissions. I rarely review ebooks because most are okay, but not great. Sanders is well worth your attention. You will not be disappointed. For the record, until I downloaded this book, I had never heard of this author.
