Ephemeris is a great follow-up to Helliopause. Again there is a fast-pace and interesting twists. And the world-building was first rate. Looking forward to following where this goes.

“I have work to do.”

Heroes come in many forms. Some wear capes. Some come into the world fully-formed. Others need to find their place and discover their powers. And Galla-Deia isn’t your typical heroine. Part Princess in the Tower, part Chosen One, part Coming of Age Story woman, she inhabits a fresh, new center to the Hero Monomyth Venn Diagram.

While “Ephemeris” is technically the second book in the Questrison Saga, chronologically it’s the first... at least part of it is. It’s also

Wow. Another hit.

This book is a page turner. I enjoyed all the new characters and the timeline convergence. You will find something about each character that makes you have feelings.This is very good Sci-Fi. I can't wait until book 3. Very excited for it.

After enjoying the first book, Heliopause, I was really looking forward to the next book as it hints at adventures to come. Where the Heliopause story develops on a space station, Ephemeris takes you on a galactic journey. There are many moments in this book where you learn more about the characters in the first book, but the stories are strong on their own and can be read independent of each other. Already looking forward to book 3 to see how this cast of characters continues to evolve.

A young woman born from a diamethyst geode, raised by robots (mostly Oni-Odi and Pliip), trained by Aeriod, tortured by Bitikk, socialized by Kein and Rez, wrapped in a quilt made for her by Meredith, and assigned a mission by the Associates (who manage the known galaxy) whether she wants to or not.

This book is the second in The Questrison Saga (and we actually get our first clue as to what "Questrison" means near the end of it).

The first book was stand alone. This book is not. It leads directly

Where to begin? JDD knows what makes characters resonate with the reader and uses that insight when writing them. Galla is introduced to us and quickly becomes a favorite. Aeroid is far more rounded out here than his introduction in Book 1. He strikes me as a Goth Gandalf. Lots of power, cares more than he lets on, lots of responsibility, but seemingly pissed off at the latter. Beetle is a classic fish-out-of-water and already a favorite. Rob reminds me of Firefly’s Wash mixed with a little more ...more

This is the second book in this series and unusually it is both a sequel and prequel to the first. The main character Galla-Deia, is introduced as a somewhat mysterious character. As the novel progresses she becomes more mature as a character and as a strong leader in the quest set before her. The book contains a variety of interesting characters and greatly emphasizes strong female role models of different ages. One can hope the author will continue the series as soon as possible.

The Questrison Saga just got a whole lot more epic!

In J. Dianne Dotson’s second book, she takes readers mind-first into the expanse of the universe we only got a small glimpse of in Heliopause. However, in Ephemeris, we follow along with a new humanoid protagonist Galla-Deia, along her quest to stop the rising evil and malevolence of Paosh Tohon; which is causing cosmic destabilization and destruction.

Moreover, Like any great mythic story, Galla must face her fears, choose between destiny and
