Product Description

In the first book of this series "Family Law", Lee's parents and their business partner Gordon found a class A habitable planet. They thought their quest as explorers was over and they'd live a life of ease. But before they could return and register their claim Lee's parents died doing a survey of the surface. That left Lee two-thirds owner of the claim and their partner Gordon obligated by his word with her parents to raise Lee. She had grown up aboard ship with her uncle Gordon and he was the only family she'd ever known. Him adopting her was an obvious arrangement - to them. Other people didn't see it so clearly over the picky little fact Gordon wasn't human.
After finding prejudice and hostility on several worlds Lee was of the opinion planets might be nice to visit, but terrible places to live. She wanted back in space exploring. Fortunately Gordon was agreeable and the income from their discovery made outfitting an expedition possible. Lee wanted to go DEEP - out where it was entirely unknown and the potential prizes huge. After all, if they kept exploring tentatively they might run up against the border of some bold star faring race who had gobbled up all the best real estate. It wasn't hard to find others of a like mind for a really long voyage. This sequel to "Family Law" is the story of their incredible voyage.

Very well written. Lots of excitement and believable shots at the gov't as they deal with the beauracacy on more than one planet. A little intrigue and even some fighting between space ships. Left the way open for a series with the young orphan teenage girl as the main character with her Yeti like(that's how I picture him ) adopted father as her protector(don't think she needs much help).Worth the read.Will be looking for next installment.

I enjoyed FAMILY LAW very much, the story was so good. I'm glad this second one surpasses the first. Please, Mackey Chandler, write numbed 3 quickly. If you need someone to proof read for you, I am available. Definitely a 5 Star read.
4.0 out of 5 stars A good trader genre & first contact tale 3 July 2014
By Some Average Guy - Published on
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Ignore the "Age Level" and "Grade Level" info in the book description. (I was almost put off thinking this was a simple young adult story.)

It's a trader / first-contact tale. It can get light on details. The main character being fantastically rich oversimplifies a lot of sticky issues. The race contact and trading without language stuff has been done before in other books pretty much identically to this. However, the key is it's woven together very well with good characters and a (very) fast pace. If you like trader tales you'll like this one. Reminds me a lot of Cherryh's books.

Like the book before it, the end is similarly abrupt. The spelling/grammar/name mix-up is there too. Only one time was it bad enough to jar me from the story though and this is on par with books of similar caliber. If you liked book 1, this is more of the same but in my opinion bigger and better than the first story. It's going to be at least a trilogy though, and likely 5 or 6 books. I went ahead and read though as this author seems to be publishing new books at a good rate.

Don't take my review as negative, the author did a great job continuing a very fun series. Basically, he took the best pieces of several excellent stories from others and wove them into a compelling single tale that keeps providing answers as well as new mysteries, growth, combat, economics, politics, the whole cabbage. The pace necessitates that many details get glossed over, but I'm ok with that in return for never having to read a boring viewpoint or slow buildup.

Looking forward to the next one in the series.
5.0 out of 5 stars Family Law Series......... 1 July 2014
By Kindle Customer - Published on

A lot of fun, while handling various serious human social issues in an interstellar disparate community. The considerable tension between races, the not so subtle arrogance and hunger for power displayed by the majority of career politicians, and the refreshing concept of direct thought followed by action combine for excitement and humor that seems to be a characteristic of this author.
If you like interstellar conflict, interstellar exploration, intense personal action, you will love this. I am anxiously awaiting the third installment of Lee Anderson, the adopted daughter of a clan of intelligent grizzly bear like aliens, who abhor dishonesty.
Really, really good reading and excellent moral pointers at the same time.......also sharply points out some current social dilemmas.
Read and Enjoy!
