Sanda and Tomas are fleeing for their lives after letting the most dangerous smartship in the universe run free. Now, unsure of who to trust, Sanda knows only one thing for certain — to be able to save herself from becoming a pawn of greater powers, she needs to discover the secret of the coordinates hidden in her skull.
But getting to those coordinates is a problem she can’t solve alone. They exist beyond a dead gate — a Casimir gate that opened up into a dead-end system without resources worth colonizing, and was sealed off. To get through the dead gate, she needs the help of the enemy Nazca. But some Nazca are only interested in the chip in her head — and they’ll crack her open to get to it.
Velocity Weapon was one of my favourite reads of last year, one of those you get to the end and want more immediately. Well come July there will BE more, in the form of Chaos Vector which continues Sanda and co’s adventures with flair and style.
Bero has disappeared to who knows where, Sanda is on the run with Dad in tow, our other characters are scattered about in precarious positions and pretty much from page one you know this is going to be one heck of an adventure.
This author has such a fantastic way with words, her descriptive sense is intuitive and involving, the characters pop from the page and the world building is second to none.
The protectorate series that started with Velocity Weapon is shaping up to be one of the best scifi series of recent years with political intrigue, diverse and eclectic characters plus you know. Action. Lots and lots of edge of the seat action. All creatively excellent with pitch perfect delivery.
Really can’t recommend these highly enough.
