Waiting on Wednesday 01/23/19

Waiting On Wednesday” is a weekly meme that first originated at Breaking the Spine but has since linked up with “Can’t Wait Wednesday” at Wishful Endings now that the original creator is unable to host it anymore. Either way, this fun feature is a chance to showcase the upcoming releases that we can’t wait to get our hands on!

Oh joy is me, the third and final book of a fantastic sci-fi trilogy I discovered last year finally has a cover to go along with its intriguing blurb. And the best news? Less than four months before it releases! Countdown starting now.

“Corporate assassin Tamarland Benteen’s last hope is the survey ship Vixen. With a load of scientists aboard under the supervision of Dr. Dortmund Weisbacher, Vixen is tasked with the first comprehensive survey of the newly discovered planet called Donovan. Given that back in Solar System, Boardmember Radcek would have Benteen’s brain dissected, he’s particularly motivated to make his escape.

The transition that should have taken Vixen years is instantaneous. Worse, a space ship is already orbiting Donovan, and, impossibly, human settlements have been established on the planet. For Dortmund Weisbacher, this is a violation of the most basic conservation tenets. Donovan is an ecological disaster.

Down on Donovan, Talina Perez takes refuge in the ruins of Mundo Base with the wild child, Kylee Simonov. But the quetzals are playing their own deadly game: one that forces Talina and Kylee to flee farther into the wilderness. Too bad they’re stuck with Dortmund Weisbacher in the process.

Back in Port Authority, Dan Wirth discovers that he’s not the meanest or deadliest man on the planet. Tamarland Benteen is making his play for control of PA. And in the final struggle, if Benteen can’t have it, he’ll destroy it all.”

  1. I’m so glad that this one finally has a name and a cover. I will be reading Abandoned soon and am so glad you loved it as much as Outpost. I sort of have an issue with this cover as I don’t really feel it compliments the others. Also, I’m not sure I like the floating head. The skull and the chalice (?) though – very awesome!


  2. Sounds like an interesting series! It’s always nice when a series is wrapping up because one less you’re in the middle of, yet it’s somewhat bittersweet saying goodbye sometimes! Hope this is a satisfying conclusion!
