Publisher's Summary

Having saved humanity from an invading alien armada, Ian Lotus finds himself not rewarded but once again on the run - struggling to stay one step ahead of a galactic government intent on his capture.
However, you don't live as long as Lotus has - well beyond the lifespan of a normal human being - without picking up a trick or two, and Lotus is savvier than most. Catching him won't be easy. Still, his pursuers have a powerful incentive: their quarry is in possession of secrets that could reshape mankind's destiny - in particular, the fact that he's the only person capable of controlling the protective halo of weaponry known as the Chronos Ring, which is humanity's first and last line of defense against its enemies throughout the cosmos.
But human agents aren't all Lotus has to worry about. Also hot on his heels is an army of genetically-engineered horrors controlled by an exiled despot from an alternate dimension, who sees Lotus - and in particular, the Ring - as the pathway for both a return to power and the subjugation of humanity. It's up to Lotus to find a way to stop this menace, before the entire human race is enslaved.

There was no way this was going to end well

Ian Lotus may be very human but he was certainly no ordinary man. For a start, no one knew how long he'd been alive - was it mere centuries, or even longer? - during which time he'd amassed an unknowable fortune and had time to develop skills far beyond that of the shorter lived person. He'd built the Chromosome Ring, the defensive shield surrounding the inhabited planets and to which only he had the key. And recently he had been recognised as the son of a near godlike alien.

But he was created by men in authority over the League of Planets and now also hated by his newly discovered younger half brother. Life was about to become difficult for Ian, following his escape from the holding planet on which he and his protector (gift from dad) on which they had been imprisoned.

This is a fun science fictional romp, well narrated by Mikael Naramore whose reading is pace perfect, well modulated and read with understanding. His voicings of all the characters is good, too, clearly differentiating them with suitable tones. Although the second in the series, it is possible to fully enjoy this tale without any knowledge of book one as all that is needed is given here. Not a serious book, raising no thought provoking issues, but it is a jolly good frolic with fights, near indestructible Cyrilllian robots, interplanetary travel (of the beam-me-up-Scottie kind), ambush and intrigue, betrayal and help from an unexpected course. Oh, and lots more.
Like I said, good fun.

I really enjoyed this story, the action was fast paced, the characters were likeable and the narrator did a great job of bring this world to life.

I jumped straight into book 2 but I didn't feel lost or confused with the story line at any point, although I will be going back to book one!
