Read Escape Velocity (Dire Earth Duology #2) Online Free - Part two of a thrilling action-adventure sci-fi duology featuring indomitable characters, incredible worlds, and plenty of rip-roaring action and thrills!
Out of the frying pan and into the fire, Captains Skyler Luiken and Gloria Tsandi (and their respective crews) have smashed through the deadly Swarm Blockade, but now find themselves scattered around the planet Carthage and the space stations that she holds in her orbit. Their mission is now twofold: destroy the military compounds of the nefarious alien overlords and find a way back home to Earth.
Standing in their way are a race of horrifying aliens aided by incredible weapons and technology. Low on supplies and with intermittent communication, the surviving humans must rely on all of their cunning, strength, and plain old good luck to turn the tables and overcome their foes.

Escape Velocity is part of the Dire Earth series. This should not be read as a standalone. There is a lot of violence, it is a Alien military thriller, so it might not be suitable for more sensitive readers. This is a military thriller so much of the storyline revolves around fighting and militar...
