Publisher's Summary

J. S. Dewes continues her fast paced, science fiction action adventure series, the Divide, with The Exiled Fleet, where The Expanse meets The Black Company—the survivors of The Last Watch refuse to die.

The Sentinels narrowly escaped the collapsing edge of the Divide.

They have mustered a few other surviving Sentinels, but with no engines they have no way to leave the edge of the universe before they starve.

Adequin Rake has gathered a team to find the materials they'll need to get everyone out.

To do that they're going to need new allies and evade a ruthless enemy. Some of them will not survive.

Actually Fresh

It’s so dope to actually find a sci-fi series that is not only good enough to get through, but dodges a lot of the cliches that plague the genre. I’m sure other readers can find some to dislike, but this is a perfect sci-fi series imo. Military, but without excessive bravado and jargon. Drama, but subdued and relationships drive characters without overwhelming the narrative. Space travel and settings, but the science is well balanced and not a burden to get through. Deus ex-machinas are solutions to every problem and generally have solid support from the story.

It’s just hard to find something that feels new these days in the genre and this one has been so refreshing.

wow so great to see a new sci Fi force

All I can say is when is book 3 . this is a grand space epic. She weaves a great tale with physics, the human condition, blurred lines of who the enemy actually is .

keep going and please do no make us wait for too long.

enojoyable

I read a review stating it had too much cussing. Don't let that review fool you. There are a few f bombs. But not enough to deter from a fantastic space odyssey. I enjoyed the two, now I pateintly wait for the third.

If you liked the first book...

you won't have any issues with this one. Similar cons: occasionally gets bogged down in details and repetitive character introspection. But there is an interesting story here that is worth a listen.

good but defently a sequel book

minor spoilers but I'll be vague..
I liked the overall story and flow. but I got really annoyed by the constant "sacrificing" themselves over and over... J for R, R for J , K fir R, R for K over and over again. felt like a never ending circle of let me die for you

Enjoyable but

I enjoyed the book but some things irk me...like when an airlock has its air removed for a space walk the people in the airlock start to float, it reads like a lack of air means we can float! also the edge of the universe reads like it means actually the edge of the galaxy! this is just down to time it takes vessels to traverse the edge of the universe would be immense even with faster than light travel. does the author mean edge of the galaxy?

i don't think i will invest in the following books.
