Publisher's Summary

The Rebellion has begun.

Two framed soldiers turned Liberators, an unhinged Vice-Admiral with mass murder on his mind, and a new rebellion.

After deserting the Sarkonian Empire and stealing one of their best stealth ships, Alyss Cortez and Farah Shahi knew it would be like this.

Always looking over their shoulder for a far-reaching enemy.

But they aren't running or hiding.

Instead, the pair are accepting search and rescue jobs and planning to take down Vice-Admiral-Kaska, antimission by antimission. Except that they didn't expect things to go so wrong.

When a terrorist attack takes out a train on Solaras, the rebellion rises - with Alyss and Farah deeply entrenched in its message. On their quest for justice and peace they gain some new friends and make discoveries that shake them to the core.

It's a long, terrible road ahead. How far will they go for what they believe in?

What a fantastic series!

Book 2 is even better than the first. I'm so glad I gave these books a chance. Keep them coming, please!

I really enjoyed this series need more

I wasn't sure what to expect after book 1 and book 2 was much better. I'm hoping for a 3rd book, but there's no indication. I want to know how this all tied together with the Renegade Jace Hughes.

Such a letdown :/

After an unclimatic ending from the first book, this one picks up the slack, free from the lame lovestory's shadow from the first. The action is good and the characters fare a little better. All was good until the final chapters started a series of disapointing scenes, as the characters suddenly stopped being clever or skilled, and all the obvious baits were taken, all the obvious betrayals were revealed, all the lifeless monologues occurred, and all the deus ex machina were used. Salvation were left to minor characters that weren't even there for the mission. It ended as unclimatic as the first book...

Can't get enough of this

The Renegade Universe continues to expand in cool ways. The Fifth Column is super fun and gives you a nice change of pace, exploring the Sarkonian Empire. Bring on more books!

Excellent!! Good plot!

A crew saving unfortunates being bullied to death, being lied to , trusting the wrong folks, their families endangered.
And thia crew & people willing to go against the powerful bullies!!
perfect for now---Russia invading Ukraine, 5th day, shelling nuclear waste facilities and kinderdgarteners --' and the EU finally standing up to R and sending military aids and Germany sending troops and Switzerland blocking their banking and the ruble becoming worthless...!!!

Loved it just as much as the first one.

I was finished within two days of download, couldn’t stop listening. I’m truly excited for the third to arrive, some creative writing to say the least.

Griping

The story is narrated perfectly making you listen to even the most boring parts. Perfect for sci-fi fans.

love the characters

Lerma and Chaney do a great job building the characters. I love Renegade Star, so it's nice to expand the story a bit here.

Just the right amount of awesome, plus a bit.

As with book 1, a perfect balance of action, drama and heart.
The subtle plans of the enemy go deeper the further into the story we go. Who can we trust?
The story-universe is getting much larger with endless possibilities for the progression of future books. I'm dying to see where we go from here.

Khristine Hvam has earned her 5 stars again.
Great job all round.

Book 3, here I come!

Back on track....

Gotta say I wasnt thrilled with the over emotional turn the furst book took at the end, however she is back to badass! Performance is on point and I with happily surprised that the author acknowledged the sudden unexplained emotional weakness the main character displayed. Its a great listen with no sign of out of place herion wheepy-ness
