Terra Insegura is the second book included in the omnibus edition titled the Helix War, which also includes the first book Marseguro. I have the separate books, but I dove right into Terra Insegura immediately after finishing the first book. Not that the first book ended on a cliffhanger--it was a fully resolved book--but because the premise and the "hook" at the end of the first book demanded I read more.

It follows two main protagonists and one of the best villains to appear in literature since Iago convinced Othello to do terrible, terrible things. The Marsegurites must help the people of Earth, some of the same people who want to destroy Marsegur ...more

One of the hardest things for any writer to do is to write an adequate sequel to an already well-written novel. Too often sequels fall short of the previous novel, and fans are left pleased, angry, or disappointed. But this is not true of Terra Insegura. The sequel to Marseguro, published last year by DAW, Terra Insegura is an action-packed thrill-ride that outshines its predecessor.

Terra Insegura begins where Marseguro left off. The plague released by Dr. Christianson-Wood to fend off the Holy

Meh. Good enough to finish once I had started, but nothing really special about the story, characters, or world.
