really liked it

The theme of this seems to be corporate ethics. We have a version of manifest destiny in space bumping up against non-scientific forces. The humans who believe the truth are unable to convince their superiors of the facts since known science seems to contradict their stories.

Instead of a government being in charge, it is the profit-seeking heartless corporate entity that is the Powers That Be of the title.

A great adventure story with a love story in the background.

Now I want to read more of the series.

rivka I've only read the first trilogy, but it was definitely a fun read.

I was unaware there were separate trilogies of this, now I have to research!


rivka There's this first trilogy, and the it looks like the follow-up series only went to two books. (I think three may have been the original plan.)

There is one in the middle (I found it via paperbackswap.com) that Goodreads did not yet have connected, but I sent the link to a Goodreads librarian and that got corrected.
Maelstrom: Book Two of The Twins of Petaybee


rivka Right, that's the second book of the follow-up series.
