In Artemis Invaded, Jane Lindskold returns to the world of Artemis, a pleasure planet that was lost for millennia, a place that holds secrets that could give mankind back unimaginable powers.

Stranded archaeologist Griffin is determined to make his way back to his home world with news of the Artemis discovery. He and his gene-modified native companion, the huntress Adara, a

At a time when science fiction is more likely to portray ecosystems collapsing rather than flourishing, Jane Lindskold's Artemis series is an anomaly. Its eponymous planet is not an ecological disaster but rather full of so many wonders that it was once a vacation paradise for a now vanished society.

Of course, like any good science fiction (or fiction, in general, for that matter) Lindskold's Artemis is full of surprises. But Lindskold takes care not to bludgeon readers with messages about the d

Once again Jane Lindskold has written a real page-turner with engaging characters and intriguing situations. Building on her previous novel ARTEMIS AWAKENING, this story follows the exploits of an off-worlder stranded on a strange planet inhabited by people and animals with unusual powers and abilities. The protagonists from the first novel must now face new threats from another group of strangers, old foes, and a strange planet. My only regret is I now have to wait another year or so to find ...more

Artemis Invaded by New York Times’ bestselling author, Jane Lindskold is the intelligent sequel to her immersive sci-fi novel Artemis Awakening. We get to follow the continued adventures of Adara the Huntress, her psychically linked female puma, Sand Shadow, and the scholar/archeologist, Griffin Dane.

The novel takes off right where the first ended and we are brought up to speed masterfully, and sent deeper in the world. The planet, Artemis, has many secrets, and the most fascinating aspect of th

Jane Lindskold’s Artemis Awakening series is old-fashioned – in a good way.
There are no ravening zombie-types, no obligatory spattering of ink-black blood after the protagonist narrowly escapes death for the 35th time, and no motiveless all-powerful evil that will take over the earth/universe/multiverse if not stopped.

Of course there are heroes and villains in “Artemis Invaded” (Tor, $25.99, 316 pages), but all are carefully drawn. Adara, a huntress with genetic adaptions, is pretty perfect, but

"Artemis Invaded" is the second in Jane Lindskold's series (following "Artemis Awakening") taking place on a terraformed planet abandoned by its creators following a massive and destabilizing galactic war, and the book is easily as marvelous as the first.

It's such a well-written adventure of discovery, of broken and forged emotional bonds between friends and family. And I love the story at the deep core of it all - that of the legacy of a destroyed civilization and the repercussions it has for

What started as a typical sci-fi novel of a spaceman crashing on a primitive planet becomes something much more in this sequel to Artemis Awakening. Adara the Huntress is slowly developing a connection to the sentient consciousness that she realizes is the planet itself. Griffin is obsessed with finding more of the Old Empire technology and studying it. Unbeknownst to him, his brothers have followed him to the planet and have encountered The Old One and Julyan, who have managed to escape ...more

“Artemis Invaded,” by Jane Lindskold (Tom Doherty, 2015). Clearly the second in a series about the life of the planet Artemis. The marooned explorer Christian Dane continues with Adara the Huntress and her puma demiurge Sand Shadow, searching for a mysterious area called Maiden’s Tear, which may contain relics of the seegnur, the humans who were destroyed in a galaxy-spanning war 500 years before. But they are being tracked by the Old One Who Is Young and his acolyte Julyan, who also want what i

The sequel to 2014's Artemis Awakening is just as good as the first installment. Without diving into spoiler territory, we see the impact of the events of the previous novel, learn more about the characters (and meet some new ones), and dig deeper into the secrets of the planet Artemis.

These books are a refreshing change of pace in the current SF landscape, which tends to be dominated by military SF, Napoleonic-navies-in-spaaaaaaaaace, and post-cyberpuke dystopias - I have nothing against any of

This felt uninspired. I didn't much care for the character, the villains could be over the top (especially but not only the Old One), and some of the decisions characters made were just headscratcher. The climax was sudden and weak.

Okay, it would have helped (but only somewhat) if I had known this was book two in a series. But the copy I picked up didn't have any notice of that on the cover, the jacket copy, or the title page, so I only figured that out once I started reading and realized that a

I thought this was excellent up until the last chapter or so. When each of the character speaks of himself and others speak for or against each, it sounded a lot like the ending of a children's book where the "mother" asks: "And what did we learn about ourselves, children?" That left an unpleasant feel to the ending for me. (Not that I think the final decisions were wrong, I just was irritated at the pontificating.)

She is able to provide a first class blend of good science with fine character development, something not often found in most sci-fi literature which tends either heavily toward one or the other. I did not read the first book (Artemis Awakening) but found that not really necessary as one is able to get the gist of the first quite rapidly in the early part of this novel.

Oh my god, I need a sequel, and I need it NOW. So much happened, so much changed, answered gained, even more mystery and questions to be solved, just WOW. I loved it. Not perfect, but wow. That is some slick and awesome sci fi!

It had been long enough since I'd read Artemis Awakening, the first book, that I had difficulty getting into the story. But once the plot lines came trickling back, I was totally engrossed.
