Can't Wait Wednesday (162)


Can't Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings to spotlight highly anticipated books.  It is based on the Waiting on Wednesday meme which used to be hosted by Jill at Breaking the Spine.





FROM GOODREADS:  The second book in a thrilling sci-fi action adventure, set on Donovan, a treacherous alien planet where corporate threats and dangerous creatures imperil the lives of the planet's colonists.

New York Times bestselling author W. Michael Gear returns us to the world he laid out with such sure purpose in Outpost. The struggle for survival sharpens as resources dwindle, technology fails, and the grim reality of life on Donovan unfolds.

Supervisor Kalico Aguila has bet everything on a fragile settlement far south of Port Authority. There, she has carved a farm and mine out of wilderness. But Donovan is closing in. When conditions couldn't get worse, a murderous peril descends out of Donovan's sky--one that will leave Kalico bleeding and shattered.

Talina Perez gambles her life and reputation in a bid to atone for ruthlessly murdering a woman's husband years ago. Ironically, saving Dya Simonov may save them all.

Lieutenant Deb Spiro is losing it, and by killing a little girl's pet alien, she may have precipitated disaster for all. In the end, the only hope will lie with a "lost" colony, and the alien-infested reflexes possessed by Security Officer Talina Perez.

On Donovan, only human beings are more terrifying than the wildlife.

WHY I CAN'T WAIT:  I know my review for the first book in this series, "Outpost" hasn't posted yet but needless to say, I feel in love with this science fiction series and can't wait until the next installment releases. I have Tammy@Books, Bones & Buffy to thank for convincing me to give this series a try and I believe it was on her blog that I first discovered this beautiful sequel.  This series definitely deserves more book love!

  6. AWESOME pick, Barb!! Although I'm not too fond of the cover, the plot certainly sounds riveting!! I also like the fact that you're interested in reading more SF. Good for you!! As Mr. Spock, would say, "Live long and prosper!" And Luke Skywalker adds, "May the Force be with you!" :) :)

    1. I think if you read the first one, and saw how well the book fit with the cover, you might feel differently toward this one. Seeing this cover makes me curious about all the wonderful things that await! I've always loved Mr. Spock.

  22. Hope you enjoy this one, Barb. Strangely enough I tend to really like sci-fi when it comes to the movies, but in books? I'm not such a fun. ;D

    Happy reading - and thanks so much for visiting Finding Wonderland.
