Summary

The sequel to The Lives of Tao. The Prophus and the Gengix are at war. For centuries they have sought a way off-planet, guiding humanity's social and technological development to the stage where space travel is possible. The end is now in sight, and both factions have plans to leave the Earth, but the Gengix method will mean the destruction of the human race. That's a price they're willing to pay. It's up to Roen and Tao to save the world. Oh, dear...

I can't tell you how much I enjoy these books!

Some of the accents are a bit off but that is the only negative thing I have - Mikael Naramore does a great job and really bring the story to life! Totally absorbing and another great book from Mr Chu - can't wait to start the final book!

Well...it wasn't the first book

Ok, here's the deal. I loved the first book. It was something fresh and humorous. I'm not sure why, but this one didn't catch me in the beginning. I didn't like how it started out with the main characters, kind being split up emotionally. I found the bickering banter a bit annoying. Setting that aside, I powered through, trusting it would get better. It did, but still just didn't live up to what I was hoping for. I still give it 4 stars overall because the performance was, once again, very solid, and because the premise of the series is still strong. I will get book 3.
