Book Description

While digging through the ruins of a long dead civilization on the planet Mawcett, a team of Terran and Nordakian archeologists find an underground tunnel leading to a door in such extraordinary condition that it could have been fabricated as recently as that morning. They labor throughout the day, using every modern device available to them, but are unable to gain entry.

Then, in the early hours of the new day, seemingly in response to the screams of a frustrated, over-tired scientist, the door slides noiselessly open. Upon passing through the entranceway, the archeologists are stunned to find an elaborate complex in pristine condition. Summoning the courage to venture further, they enter a large circular chamber lined with strange electronic equipment, and immediately become engrossed in examining strange symbols etched into the floor near the center of the room. Suddenly, they're bathed in a strange light that paralyzes them where they stand. They watch in frozen terror as a clear, circular wall rises up around them. When the enclosed area begins to fill with a dense ocher gas smelling of persimmons, the dig site laborers, who had witnessed the activity from the periphery, run screaming for the entrance.

    5.0 out of 5 stars A great tale 22 Feb. 2011
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This series of books so reminds me of my trips to the library to collect the next Hornblower books when I was much less old than I am now. They are not masterpieces but are wonderful adventures with some clever plots. My only tiny gripe is the way almost every character has their height mentioned when they are introduced! Looking forward to reading the whole series.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Another excellent book 13 Mar. 2011
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    Well I have just finished the second book and bought the third, I can see me finishing all six this month they are such page turners.
    As I said in my review of book one, you know she's going to win but the way she does it is what makes you want to keep reading.
    The more you read, the more you understand the fictional world that the books inhabit and that makes them more enjoyable from my perspective.
    Another enjoyable read that has all the markings of a modern day "cowboys and indians" storey, to lift a simile from the books.
    Well done again to the author, I am off to continue the adventure that is Jenetta Carver.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Another Fun Read with some good Twists 25 Dec. 2010
    Format:Kindle Edition
    As the third in the series, I felt that the author kept up the pace of the first two books in the stellar career of Jenetta Carver. The description for this book only covers the first two chapters; however, any other description would only provide plot spoilers.
    The author has done great work as usual in all engineering and planetary descriptions, keeping up the realistic feel for the world that he's created.
    At the back of the book, there are some helpful appendices to help with the large relative distances, the military ranks and the main characters.
    In addition, the author makes a point of explaining within the story all references to escapades in the previous books or to engineering ideas that have already been explained. Therefore, if you really wanted, you could read this book as a standalone book (I don't think it would be quite as much fun though).
    Off to read the next one in the series!

    5.0 out of 5 stars More story, but less action 1 Jun. 2011
    By Steve
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This book was a little less focuses on moving straight from one battle to the next and instead focuses a bit more on adding some depth and development to the main character.

    Initially I thought this book a bit slower that the first two offerings, but as I got into it I found it as thoroughly entertaining.

    I think the series needed this pause to add a bit more dimension to Janetta Carver. However being the type of book it is, it is still mainly focused on moving the adventure along at pace than looking deeply into the main characters personality. However, if you are onto book 3, then you know the type of book this is.

    Overall I liked it and found it another page turner, so if you liked the first two, although this is a bit different, you will like this.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Clonetastic! 13 May 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    As Admiral Holt says at one point in the book, Jenetta "needed a little rounding out". Whatever the Admiral meant by that, you'll have to read the book to find out, but DePrima takes pause in this book from the headlong rush from one battle to the next to give us more depth and character development. Nevertheless, after a slow start the action hots up, and we have our fill of raiders, battles, decoys, attacks, assassination attempts, and even more Carvers than you can shake a stick at. The pacing is excellent, and the characters are starting to feel like members of the family.

    As with the first two books, my first reaction on finishing was to head straight back to Amazon to download book 4.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Book 3 in a superb series 12 Nov. 2011
    Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
    This book, together with the other six books so far published in this series, is a real "page-turner". A Space Opera which openly acknowledges the Hornblower books as an inspiration, although the heroine is more likeable and infallible (perhaps closer to Alexander Kent's Richard Bolitho or Dudley Pope's Ramage).

    Set in the 23rd Century, with well thought out explanations for faster-than-light travel and other scientific advances, and gripping descriptions of set piece battles in space, all seven books are thoroughly entertaining.

    5.0 out of 5 stars Galaxy Unknown Saga 8 Mar. 2012
    Format:Kindle Edition
    I'm an avid reader of Sci Fi and was immediately hooked after reading the first book in the series and ended up rushing at the end of each one to download the next onto my kindle...The books are well written and you engage with the characters well worth the time to read
