Publisher's Summary

The crew of Another Road are back, closer than ever to the biggest score in the galaxy...if they can stay a step ahead of the Justice Department agents and Company men tracking them.

An engineer with a fondness for weapons. A captain with no memory. An obsessive genemodder who loves to tinker. Meet the crew of Another Road.

Josune, Roystan, and Nika have escaped the company thugs trying to kill them. They've gotten a new spaceship to replace The Road (after it was blown up underneath them). And their new ship is armed to the teeth with dangerous weapons, courtesy of Josune. All that's left to do before they head out to find the legendary lode of transurides is to restore Roystan's memory. To do that, they need to collect the genemod machine Nika has ordered.

But first, they have to shake off the Justice Department agent and the Companies tracking them.

It should be easy. They've done it before. What could possibly go wrong?

Another slow begining but amazing ending

First mention has to be the narrator. I didn't have an issue with lower tones before but this time around she was almost inaudible. she was so quiet! It almost ruined the story for me. When she was speaking dialogue it was fine, but every other time i was straining my ears to hear.

And not to continue bashing the story, because I really did like it, but most of the story around Alistar seemed so unnecessary and boring in the beginning. I skipped a fair amount of his chapters.

There are also too many times in the story that seemed just too convenient for the bad guys. Every time the crew had a problem there were 9 other things that they had to do to solve the problem and it just seemed highly unlikely and irritating. For example (no spoilers) "oh a locked door, oh no there's a bomb too, oh look someone is also chasing us with a gun, and oxygen is about to run out!" This is not in the story and a bit of an exaggeration but that's how the story feels at times and it makes no sense how they escaped.

Now for the good stuff... Once you get past their ridiculous escapes the story is amazing. We get to learn more about some of the crew and new characters. Relations grow closer and we get to travel with the crew to new lands and makes amazing discoveries. This would be a great adventure to continue with the crew without being chased all the time. I hope the author considers that. Although I did like the first book better, this one still adds great depth to the story, their world, and the characters. I hope Another Roads story continues!

Good continuation of the series.

Lovely light entertainment as always by AK Dunstall - never fails to impress. Can highly recommend if you have read the first book in the series.
