The legendary battle-carrier UFS Phoenix is on the run in Outer Neutral Space. Lieutenant Commander Erik Debogande and Major Trace Thakur are determined to use neutral territory to broker a peace between humanity's warring factions, away from Fleet's strong arm.

The Adventure Continues

A good second installment. Overall enjoyable, enough twists and turns, unexpected developments to keep it interesting. Performance of Mr Lee is outstanding. I enjoyed his voice selections for the various characters. At times gets bogged down by too much emotional baggage from the various characters tormenting themselves with self doubt, second guessing, etc. Overall I highly recommend it.

Book 2 in Excellent Space Opera / Military Sci-Fi

I always figure that if you are reading a review of Book 2 in a series that you liked the first book, and want to know if the series stays vibrant or just fades away in repetition. I am now on the 4th in the series, and it is improving as it goes.

My review of Book 1 stated "Military space opera with a pretty standard lead in -- junior command officer has to take over valiant ship and fight his way out of big trouble. A slightly slow start but oddly akin to the beginning of Hamilton's Void. I was totally unprepared for this being so much fun. Don't read it for the new ideas, read it because it is well done. The dialogue, pacing and characters are just that.... a lot of fun. I really hope that this is the first in a series." In Books 2-3, the "ideas" begin to become more sophisticated -- so I am modifying that critique. It is not Revelation Space or the Void yet -- but it is inching up on those world-building masterpieces.

Book Two also starts a bit slow (with necessary political background) but like Book 1, builds steadily to an overwhelming, astounding conclusion. The characters mature and become more fleshed out, the narrative becomes more complex, the narration remains perfect -- and the ships and battles are great. I really believe that if you liked the first book, you should keep reading. Can't really get a better review than that !

Stocking good read. A real page turner!

Where does Drysine Legacy rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

Has a feel of a Peter F Hamilton. Certainly ranks alongside.

What does John Lee bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you had only read the book?

Comfortable with the genre. Feels right.

Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

couldnt put it down

incredible, one of the best of this genre.

I've found my new favourite space sci-fi, move over B.V.Larson. It's only the second book in the series but I already know I have no choice but to read the rest. Original, surprising and beautifully read.
