When a body is found drowned in a sewerage vat, Special Agent Zoe Moore and her team is summoned to space station Akkadia to investigate. In amongst a bustling space tourism trade, established by Everjein, Zoe soon discovers a series of unexplained near death suffocations. Circumstantial evidence points to four young delegates of a seemingly passive religious order, motivated to populate the galaxy.
Meanwhile as Dr Kian Barret works with his engineers to expand the size of the station he is brutally attacked leading to a series of catastrophic events that could see all the station inhabitants lost in the vacuum of space.
In Book Two of the Disciples of Cassini Trilogy, the Everjein team have moved a step closer to Titan, and are now about to be sharing their space research station, Akkadia, with affluent earth tourists.
Penny again displays her talent for immediately drawing the reader into the story and the lives, of her now familiar crew plus some interesting new additions.
If this is your first time reading Penny's work, The Chaldean Legacy could stand alone, but you'll want to go back and read Book One: Lost Souls.
