This book is a wild ride! Disclaimer: I am the author's sister. I've been waiting for this sequel for 40 years. It was worth the wait.

I love the description and the characterization. I might add that violence is not described in graphic detail. Profanity is minimal. I enjoy the banter between feisty Ruszel and stiff-and-formal Dtimun. But, a new character, Mallory, is brought aboard the Morcai. She has to replace Ruszel, and Dtimun doesn't like her at all. She begins timidly and her character gr
This is the second book in a trilogy. You must read The Morcai Batalian (which has Diana Palmer listed as author) FIRST! Most series you jump in during the middle and be okay but The Batalian is not one of those series. NOT BECAUSE its complicated but because of the alien/human mixed crew. You will NOT GET ANY OF THE JOKES AND TENSON "in the room" scenes, if you read them out of order.

I hate spoilers so all I'm gonna say is: The emotional connection between Utimon and Madeline developing is a ma
The story continues with the same main characters and their on going relationship causing more problems for everyone. The emotions were even more intense than in book one and I was delighted with the storyline's progression. I also felt for the new character (Mallory), who is brought in to take over from Ruszel, as she had so much trouble fitting in it was almost comical. Again I was driven to experience deep emotions whilst reading this.

I've waited years for the continuation of this sci-fi series by Diana Palmer. I'm glad to say that she has not only this book but another due in December 2015 coming.
It went into a little more detail than the first and the H/h relationship is also a little more developed. Can't wait for Invictus.
A good second book in the series... With an unfortunate cliffhanger ending and a third book not due until the end of the year!
I liked this book but it leaves you waiting for the next installment.
