I had to take a break between reading Burden of Sisyphus and picking up Fall of Icarus. Burden of Sisyphus was a totally tear jerker for me and put me through a gauntlet of emotions and honestly I wasn’t sure I could handle this book right away. However it probably wasn’t necessary.

This book showed a different side of Messengers’ writing. This book was amazing and I dare say I might have actually liked it better then the first. Though I’m not sure they can be compared.

I received this book and the first book in exchange for reviews. If you love military or syfy books, you are going to love this series. I am not a fan of it but it was well written and I am sure there are plenty of people who have enjoyed this book. I am giving it 4 stars since it is well written, just not something I enjoyed.

I thought I did review this back in June.

I loved the first book a lot.

However, I had a hard time caring to finish this book. There were a lot of good parts to kept my interest. I just felt like those good parts were scattered and hard to come across.

I also felt like some parts were either rushed or confusing. There was not much of a flow throughout the book. I was in no hurry to pick up the third book after I was done with this one.

You did not really feel like you were connecting with any of

This book was even better than the first one in the series. The battle between the Alliance and the Empire heats up really fast, as well as some of the relationships that are going on. A dark secret is revealed at the end of the book that sets up for what I hope will be a really great final book. These books need to be read in order.

This is a wonderful SciFi thriller. Full of action, futuristic technology, romance, conflict, all revolving around well-developed characters. I look forward to reading book 3 of the series.
