This is the second book in the Tao series.
This book takes place a few years after the first book. Roen and Tao have become quite the team. They have actually been living on their own away from Roen’s family in order to hunt down the Genjix.
What I really liked about this book was we got to expand on other character’s POVs. We got to see Jill and her prophus POV as well as those of our villains. We definitely got a more well rounded story because of this.
Now that the stakes were significantly higher and Roen proved to be a capable fighter, we see him go out on missions. The author does a really good job of giving Roen a believable skill set. Yes has improved so much since the first book but he doesn't turn into an amazing fighter and strategist overnight.
Not every mission was a success and even the one that were successful didn't leave Roen feeling accomplished. I loved how Roen kept questioning everything around him.
The only issue I had with this book was that it just wasn’t that funny. The first book had so many hilarious moments while also being a fun spy, alien training montage. This book was definitely a lot more serious.
Overall, I did enjoy this book I gave it a B.
I devour worlds with each new book. I am making up for lost time as a late bloomer of the reading world.
