One thing about writing a series is you have to keep it fresh. You can’t keep blowing things up – or can you? If you put your characters through the same thing over and over your reader will be bored – or at least I would be. So I wanted to shake things up a bit… maybe a lot. These three books are about big changes in life. Huge changes which will either make a person stronger and better or it will break them down. What do you think happens with Adara?
Adara is in danger – again? Really? Well this time it’s right on Command Station and it’s partly Decker’s fault. If only he hadn’t asked his father to get Adara out of their quarters. This book has a lot of sorrow and grief in it. It also has one of my favorite scenes when one very small character gets a chance to be a hero.
Someone wants Adara dead – again.
A disastrous first flight leads Franklin to expose sabotage and industrial espionage threatening Adara’s life. Orders come down, Adara and Decker are to seek out and meet with the Hettians. They are to return the Hettian prisoners to their home world.
Dr. Nukpana is on the loose trying to recruit Wayfarers and testing his formula on humans. The bodies pile up while Adara and Decker cope with an arrogant and foolish diplomat.
Everything Adara loves is threatened. Many she holds dear are at risk. Will she be able to save the Pritchard and her crew? Or will she lose all she loves again?
Loss, grief, and big life changes means Adara is off balance and uncertain of herself. This book has a lot of plot strands which lead the characters in a lot of directions but ultimately, brings them together to face it all together. For this, I wanted to show that even characters in a book have bad times and difficulties.
Adara can’t shake her grief.
Without a ship and home, she feels untethered. Adara is pulled in many directions with her negotiations, training, and consulting. In the chaos of all her responsibilities, her life is threatened. Is it because of the crimes she’s helped solve, the enemies she’s made at Command or with Nukpana? Who is after her? She struggles to find her balance as Decker is injured protecting her.
Wayfarer independence comes before the legislature. The clan leaders decide Adara is the best woman for addressing the large assembly. Adara would like anyone else to do it but agrees because her people need her to.
Will she be able to persuade them to give Wayfarer their independent status?
New EVERYTHING! Starting this book like the reader just turned the page to see what was next seemed like the logical step in this book. There’s a lot of changes in responsibilities and life for this book.
Adara and Decker experience the fears and joys of expecting their child. Fears remain from the previous miscarriage. Decker wants to protect her, shelter her.
With twists and turns of crime fighting, pregnancy issues, and growing pains, the crew of the Phoenix fumble their way through the first days of their contracts with Decker, Hal, Adara, and all the command staff trying to guide them.
Will they succeed on the new ship?
