The adventure continues in this action-packed follow up to The Degan Incident and The Cassini Mission!

Peri McSmith is aboard the U.S.C. Cassini, en route to the Degan Homeworld. A routine medical examination reveals a startling yet impossible link between Peri and the Cassini’s last mission.

Beshel Drago, Chief Investigator for the Degan Federation, searches for leads on the rogue scientists conducting illegal genetic experiments using Degan citizens. He hits yet another a dead end—until the rescued embryo’s human parent is identified.

When the Degan Science Institute is attacked, and the embryo stolen, it’s up to Beshel and Peri to not only recover the child, but to prevent all-out war between the Degans and the Galactic Planetary Union.

My View:

As the blurb states, this was indeed an action-packed adventure! I enjoyed seeing all the characters from the previous two books and was glad to get the conclusion of the story line setup over those books. Everything played out like a great movie – just how I like my sci-fi adventure books to be!

Peri was an interesting character; I loved how he felt toward his unexpected responsibility and the lengths he went to in defending it despite not having the background. His and Beshel’s relationship was different. I felt the chemistry but they didn’t have much in common. However, as in the previous books, I was able to overlook it for the sake of the action story, much like the movies where the main love interests are thrown together and the situation drives the attraction. I think in this case, the HEA pans out due to other factors so I could believe it in the end.

If you liked the first two books, this is a great addition. Although seemingly the end of the story arc, there is another couple set up that could be explored in another book. I hope we get to see that relationship too.
