Description-

  • In the thrilling second book in a series best described as Alien meets The Darkest Minds, Kenzie and her friends find themselves on the run and up against another alien invasion headed towards Earth.
    They may have escaped Sanctuary, but Kenzie and her friends are far from safe.

    Ex-Omnistellar prison guard Kenzie and her superpowered friends barely made it off Sanctuary alive. Now they're stuck in a stolen alien ship with nowhere to go and no one to help them. Kenzie is desperate for a plan, but she doesn't know who to trust anymore. Everyone has their own dark secrets: Omnistellar, her parents, even Cage. Worse still, she's haunted by memories of the aliens who nearly tore her to shreds—and forced her to accidentally kill one of the Sanctuary prisoners, Matt.

    When Kenzie intercepts a radio communication suggesting that more aliens are on their way, she knows there's only one choice: They must destroy the ship before the aliens follow the signal straight to them. Because if the monstrous creatures who attacked Sanctuary reach Earth, then it's game over for humanity.

    What Kenzie doesn't know is that the aliens aren't the only ones on the hunt. Omnistellar has put a bounty on Kenzie's head—and the question is whether the aliens or Omnistellar get to her first.

    June 1, 2019
    The terrifying aliens from Sanctuary (2018) are tracking the stolen ship full of teenage superpowered former prisoners, forcing the teens to turn themselves in to their corporate overlords to protect humanity. After Kenzie translates alien transmissions and learns that the aggressive colonizers are actively looking for the missing (stolen) ship via a signal it sends out, they decide to surrender to a corporate rival of Omnistellar in exchange for the destruction of the ship. Kenzie, who is white; Chinese twins Cage (the sexy love interest) and Rune (the best friend); and company are quickly double-crossed and must try to avoid capture by a variety of dangerous parties while the alien threat closes in. Frequent bursts of (often repetitive) expository infodumps unrelated to the physicality of the settings are unwieldy and unpruned, distancing readers from the world instead of enhancing immersion. The storyline's logic induces some real head-scratching moments, punctuated by chase scene upon chase scene, possibly to distract readers from scrutinizing the motivations and general intelligence of the characters, especially the antagonists. These chases also allow glimpses into the lives and backgrounds of the secondary characters--Russian Alexei, Irish Mia, Jasper Many Chiefs (who has dark hair in a ponytail and high cheekbones), and Egyptian hijabi Imani. An unsatisfying climax sets up the next book. This action-heavy story's execution is marred by an artless lack of strategy in the narrative techniques. (Science fiction. 12-adult)
