Publisher's Summary

For 53 years Serengeti drifted, dreaming in the depths of space. Fifty-three years of patient waiting before her Valkyrie Sisters arrive to retrieve her from the dark. A bittersweet homecoming follows, the Fleet Serengeti once knew now in shambles, its admiral, Cerberus, gone missing, leaving Brutus in charge. Brutus who's subsumed the Fleet, ignoring his duty to the Meridian Alliance to pursue a vendetta against the Dark Star Revolution.
The Valkyries have a plan to stop him - depose Brutus and restore the Fleet's purpose - and that plan involves Serengeti. Depends on Serengeti turning her guns against her own.
Because the Fleet can no longer be trusted. With Brutus in charge, it's just Serengeti and her Sisters, and whatever reinforcements they can find.
A top-to-bottom refit restores Serengeti to service, and after a rushed reunion with Henricksen and her surviving crew, she takes off for the stars. For Faraday - a prison station - to stage a jailbreak, and free the hundreds of Meridian Alliance AIs wrongfully imprisoned in its Vault. From there to the Pandoran Cloud and a rendezvous with her Valkyrie Sisters. To retrieve a fleet of rebel ships stashed away inside.

A Fun Space Opera

In the first book of the series “Serengeti”, the Valkyrie class space ship Serengeti was almost dead while drifting in space. Her little robots were working hard to keep some vital systems operating while waiting for rescue. In book two of the series, it turns out that Serengeti drifted for 53 years before being rescued. Serengeti is the AI that is the space ship. She returns to discover the fleet in shambles, the Admiral missing and Brutus is in command of what is left of the fleet. Brutus is on a vendetta against the Dark Star Revolution. Serengeti receives a complete refit and is restored to service. She is reunited with Henricksen and crew. They are assigned to free the Meridian Alliance AI’s from a prison.

The book is well written and full of action. Rockwell does an excellent job with the battle scenes. The characters are interesting and likeable. I, of course, like Serengeti best of all along with her three special robots. The pace is fast and the suspense builds continuously. I found the book hard to put down. After reading two books by Rockwell, I just now realized that Rockwell is a woman.

The book is almost fourteen hours long. Elizabeth Wiley does a good job narrating the story. She has narrated all the books in the series so far. Wiley is an actor, voice-over artist and award-winning audiobook narrator.

good but not great for me

I liked the story and I really wanted to now how it ended. I had a hard time being pulled in to the story. I was able to put it down several times but picked it back up to see how it ended. All that said I will be getting the next book because of potential
