Summary

A new Cold War threatens the galaxy in this fast-paced and wisecracking thriller of spies and subterfuge.  

Simon Kovalic, top intelligence operative for the Commonwealth of Independent Systems, is on the front line of the burgeoning Cold War with the aggressive Illyrican Empire. He barely escapes his latest mission with a broken arm and vital intel that points to the empire cozying up to the Bayern Corporation: a planet-sized bank. There’s no time to waste, but with Kovalic out of action, his undercover team is handed over to his ex-wife, Lt. Commander Natalie Taylor. When Kovalic’s boss is tipped off that the Imperium are ready and waiting, it’s up to the wounded spy to rescue his team and complete the mission before they’re all caught and executed.

Enjoyable characters and good story telling.

tedious

The book starts off well, but rapidly devolves into a leisurely soap opera. Given that this is book 1, it seems the author is practicing milking the agenda for several drawn-out volumes; I will pass, thank you.

Spycraft in space

I read the first book and really enjoyed it; Mostly because of the characters, but it doesn't hurt that I'm a fan of spycraft and intrigue. This folowup is, I have to say, even better than the first, and it left me wanting more. I'll definitely pick up any future books in this series.

one way to waste your money

tepid action, wimpy characters, and a do nothing plot combine to make one wish this were a paperback so that it could be used in the outhouse as a wiper of backsides, page by page.

Amazing Voice

The narrator really draws you in and makes the characters come off the page. Lifelike.

What a fun romp!

Moren’s second novel builds and expands upon the first. The plot thickens as compared to his first book, and the hints of a galactic conspiracy at the end leave the reader wanting more.

good story. wry humor.

a little disjointed connections between segments. narrator often seemed a bit mechanical and disinterested in his reading.
