The sparsely populated moon, Io, is destroyed in a terrorist attack. Hundreds are dead in the cataclysmic explosion. Thousands become refugees as the shattered remnants of the moon threaten the Jupiter Alliance. Billions throughout the solar system are wondering, "Where next?"
Those responsible must be found and brought to justice. The explorer ship Erebus is reassigned from its mission and sent to Jupiter to investigate this atrocity with Trent's international team onboard. And what Trent discovers among the relics of the alien Sleeping Gods will change humanity's place in the universe forever.

Slow to start and good in hindsight

What did you like best about Erebus? What did you like least?

First, the positive. I greatly enjoyed the direction of the story and how it will come to play in the third book in this series. The story added good background and detail to help flesh out this particular universe.

Now, the negative. I'm not typically a fan of a series that begins with one set of characters, which are then replaced in the sequel by an entirely different set of characters with a plotline that seems unrelated until near the end of the sequel. After finishing Erebus I can appreciate why this book was written in this manner (see the positive), but I must admit that I had to resist putting the story down on numerous occasions. It didn’t help that the narrator changed between Endeavour (Book 1 – Michael Kramer narrating) and Erebus (Book 2 – Shaun Grindell narrating) and in my view, Shaun Grindell simply didn’t deliver. Not that he is not a good narrator, but that Michael Kramer operates in an entirely different league.

Would you be willing to try another one of Shaun Grindell’s performances?

Only if he narrates that entire series.

Did Erebus inspire you to do anything?

It did! I built my own anti-matter torch and I'm currently accelerating towards C while writing this review from the future.

Annoying narrator 1st person voice

Would you try another book from Ralph Kern and/or Shaun Grindell?

Ralph Kern, yes
Shaun, no

How did the narrator detract from the book?

The voice of the main character is characterized by words unnecessarily shaped by a relatively long whispering drag-out from the words mid-point(s), this makes the story run out about 2 hours longer than it would be in a reasonably normal speaking voice
