As the most serious threat ever facing the galaxy now looms over them—weapons able to destroy stars—Calvin and his enterprising crew continue their mission to expose and eliminate the dark conspiracy that has taken root inside the Empire. Now a fugitive on the run, Calvin has no choice but to work alongside Raidan’s mysterious Organization. And accept help from the unlikeliest band of fair-weather friends, including a mysterious squad of Polarian soldiers, an ex-intelligence-operative from the Rotham Republic, and the ever elusive Tristan—whose truest motives are a closely guarded secret.

To make matters worse, Calvin is hunted mercilessly across the stars by Intel Wing’s top operative, Lafayette Nimoux, who is aided by a double-agent on Calvin’s own ship.

Meanwhile the sands of fortune are shifting within the Empire, upsetting the delicate political climate. Warships and civilian transports are vanishing without a trace and murders in the dark are going unnoticed. All eyes are fixed on Renora—a human colony that has been savagely attacked and thrown into civil war. The prime suspect behind the attack is none other than Princess Kalila Akira. All the dark signs are pointing to what could be the death of the Empire, and the end of human dominance in the galaxy."


  • Good sequel with a few minor issues

    By Jauzinho17
    Thoroughly enjoyed this book as with the first in the series. The action was well-written and the plot development kept me reading long after I should've been asleep. There were a few things that I felt might be improved, for one the character development wasn't as good as in the previous book and I feel some more could be done with the Polarian and the Human interaction. Also the storyline, whilst very enjoyable, seemed to be a little too protracted meaning that occasionally certain parts of the story took a little longer than perhaps necessary. But this is just my opinion, don't let me deter you from enjoying this great second instalment. Overall, I would say the book had plenty of fast paced, gripping scenes that were thoroughly enjoyable, but it lacked a few of the familiar quirks that the first book had. I look forward to reading book 3.
  • Awesome follow up

    By mattthedaddy
    After reading the first book, which the author currently offers for free. This was an excellent follow up. The characters become more and more immersive and the story is compelling. I immediately bought the next book in the series.
  • Book two

    Except spelling mistakes I will be continuing in reading the next books.
  • Great book but has one issue

    By OliverP28
    I loved this book and the previous book as well, as I like this style of writing. The plot is very well thought out and has a lot of potential in the future. But one issue is not with the writing but is with the price of the book, £4.49 is an ok price if I was buying it as a paper copy but as I have found book on iBook are cheaper then that I would have expected the price to be about £3.50 to £4 but that only my opinion.

  • The Phoenix Conspiracy

    By Tonylin555
    As soon as I finish this I will download the third book. The first 2 have me hooked. I am not a prolific reader so I have few reference points but I was drwn in to the books gradually and thoroughly. I must thank the author for that! You have made want me more, in general, not just your books but obviously book 3 in the series will be next! To others I would say the subject matter may be for particular audience but the writing draws you in so the author has surely achieved his goal! Thanks
  • Loving this series

    By Exacutiona000000
    I'm really enjoying the series, the last few chapters had me gripped to the point, I couldn't sleep and had to read on, the tension that was built up near the end had me on the edge of my seat. Keep up the good work, can't wait to read the next book.
  • Outstanding!

    By Fredicool11
    This instalment is an excellent sequel to The Phoenix Conspiracy. It has an excellent plot that keeps you reading, and twists that keep you guessing. Calvin's substance abuse and tension with Summers was excellent, and this book has those excellent moments, but Sanders has really made this a book worthy of recognition, reading, and excitement. Love it!
