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.

This is the second half of and conclusion to the Dire Earth duology that began with Injection Burn. This duology itself is also a follow up to the Dire Earth cycle, a trilogy of novels published a few years back. I haven’t read the Dire Earth cycle novels, but these books...

Skyler is back, Gloria is back, the crews are back and the Swarm Blockade has been breached! A few minor details they have all landed scattered across the planet Carthage and its space stations, a little battered, a little bruised and in a lot of trouble. Getting back to Earth? Not looking like t...

Escape Velocity (and this duology) will appeal to those who enjoyed all three books of the Dire Earth series. It has many of the same elements: exploration, the unknown, luck, humans being their own worst enemy, plenty of action, multiple POVs, and a lot of big concepts. But those who have not re...

I was given a preview copy of this book by netgalley, which was great as I would definitely have bought this book.
I'll give my review of this together with the first book, injection burn. These books are exactly what the 80's action movie taglines were made for "high octane", "adrenaline rush" e...

The only expectation I had for Escape Velocity was that it was the conclusion to the Dire Earth Duology, and that it had a badass captain on the cover. If you read my review on Tuesday, you already know that I seriously liked Zero World, so I had high expectations for the Dire Earth Duology.

Couldn't get out of Kindle iPad app without posting a review
I liked the book. I really disliked the non-ending. Writing a novel with the idea of leaving the reader hanging, with the stated motivation that you're waiting to see if the publisher pays you to write a sequel, breaks down the first wal...

Another thrilling sci-fi adventure providing a fitting end to the Dire Earth series (or at least AN end if not THE final end to the series). This is not a book where the final outcome should come as a big surprise, and it's pretty straight-forward when it comes to who the good guys and the bad gu...
