Polaris (Avalon, #2)
Blurb (from Goodreads):
Following the events of Avalon, Jeth Seagrave and his crew are on the run. Jeth is desperate to find the resources and funding he needs to rescue his mother from an ITA’s research lab and leave this whole galaxy behind for a new life somewhere else. But the ITA is just as desperate, and soon Jeth finds himself pursued by a mysterious figure hell-bent on capturing Jeth and his crew—dead or alive. In a last-ditch effort to save everyone he holds dear, Jeth enters into a bargain with the last person he ever thought he'd see again: Dax Shepherd, the galaxy’s newest and most fearsome crime lord. And he’s not the only one: upon arriving back at Peltraz spaceport for the first time since he witnessed the death of his old employer, Jeth discovers Dax has a new partner: Jeth’s mother, Marian.

This shocking turn of events is only the first in another breathless, action-packed sci-fi adventure rife with danger, love, and betrayal, as Jeth has to once again ask himself how much he’s willing to invest in a morally bankrupt galaxy in the hopes of saving those he cares for.

This was an interesting sci-fi sequel, and I liked the action.

I liked Jeth in this book, but I was also wary of him. His increasing dependence on the brain implant made him a bit of a liability for me, and I was constantly worried about what it would lead him to do.

The storyline in this was pretty good, and I really liked the action. I was quite upset over the loss of one particular thing, and I was also surprised by the unexpected deaths we got in this instalment! Nothing like a few deaths to spice a story up!
There was a tiny bit of romance in this, but it really was tiny. Jeth did not endear himself to his significant other, let’s just put it that way!

The ending to this was okay, and we did get a bit more action. It was definitely the action that made this book for me, and I wonder how many more spaceships Jeth will manage to destroy in his lifetime.
Overall; lots of sci-fi action,
7 out of 10.

  3. I liked this story, but not as much as the first. I found this one dragged just a bit. I was happy with the conclusion, though I felt there needed to be more conflict with Jeth in terms of how he was able to overcome things. Overall I wish there was more to this series and I really love Arnett's writing! Nice review!
