The adventure continues in this action-packed follow up to The Degan Incident!
Dr. Aron Adler is ordered to take part in a rescue mission to a research colony located on an uninhabited planet in the outer rim. He is to immediately report to the U.S.C. Cassini, which will take Aron, two other scientists, and a unit of Union Marines to the colony. Once there, they are to assess the situation and retrieve any data or specimens.
Formerly a scientist in the Union Navy, Aron was dishonorably discharged following a court-martial for failing to obey orders. Stepping foot on the Cassini brings up old feelings he would rather forget. Shunned by the crew of the Cassini, Aron finds comfort in the arms—and bed—of Marine corporal Kane Robertson.
Upon reaching the colony, it becomes apparent that not everything is as it seems. Once again, Aron is faced with a difficult decision: follow orders or follow his heart.
This is book 2 in Rob Colton’s Galactic Conspiracies Series. You likely remember Dr. Aron Adler from book 1. Well, this is his book.
Aron is called in for a mission and he’s not at all thrilled about it. First off he’s reinstated into the Navy, where he was dishonorably discharged from, and forced into this mission. He, along with 2 other science officers, a bunch of GEM Marines, and some questionable officers, he boards a very rusty old ship , The Cassini, on a trip he knows nothing about.
Kane is a GEM Marine and he and Aron pretty much fall deep in lust with each other and thank god. They really have each other’s backs. This is a book full of lies, secrets, and a high body count. Not a lot of people make it out of this mission alive.
As exciting as this story was I don’t think it was as good as the first book. I was entertained and excited and I had a lot of fun but it was missing something. I did however see how book 2 connected with book one so it is an important story. I look forward to the next story.
