How far would you travel to save a friend? Adrian Tarn would go 700 trillion miles to the Mu Arae system, a place where no real laws exist and even the laws of physics can't be trusted. Join the crew of the starship Griffin on a journey through unexplored space to solve the mystery of the skull, and the fate of lost friends. (Sequel to Deep Crossing)

5.0 out of 5 stars Just gets better and better 18 April 2015
By Marc

This is the third Adrian Tarn book which started with Fatal Boarding and continued in Deep Crossing.
This is definitely my favourite of the three, larger in scope and pretty epic in regards to what happens through the story. I loved how much was crammed into this book without it feeling overlong, my only criticism is that it ends a bit too abruptly!

I've already reviewed the last two books seperately, but i'll say the same here: read these books, you'll be glad you did.

And E.R.. I want to go back to the Griffin, hurry up and make it happen please! Haha

5.0 out of 5 stars Great enteraining read 17 Sept. 2014
This is the third book I've read in this series, and it is the most far fetched. Fatal boarding was simply outstanding, Deep Crossing was a bit wierd because the main character, Adrian Tarn, suddenly changes from being a rebellious security officer to a hot shot pilot/racer. Except RJ, the other characters also seem to change their background skills to suit the storyline (e.g. Wilson who suddenly becomes some black ops character). BUT…! Who cares? Don't analyse, just read and enjoy, it's a ripping yarn!

5.0 out of 5 stars Second book by this author 14 Jan. 2015
Verified Purchase
I chose this rating because I found this book every bit as good as the first one which I gave the same rating. I went from the first straight to this book to see if the author could keep up standard he had set. I wasn't disappointed. He carried on from Deep Crossing which I didn't expect and I was back in immediately.
He is easy to read and the story flows well, without gimmicks to keep you interested. They are not needed.

5.0 out of 5 stars Read this series. It's great. 12 Nov. 2014

The latest of the "Adrian Tarn Chronicles"; just as well written and engaging as the other 3.
By virtue of surviving an encounter with malign aliens, Adrian Tarn finds himself gifted with an interstallar spacecraft far in advance of normal Earth technology. This allows him and his crew to embroil themselves in lots of really serious trouble.

5.0 out of 5 stars Book number 3 in this great series 30 Sept. 2014
By Pam
Verified Purchase
I love the adventure and good versus evil vibe. Just to be picky- the character Dr Catherine Adara is also called Christine and Christine Donoro. I spent ages wondering if this was some sort of subtle clue. The editor needs a smack. Also loved the appearance of my husband's favourite word- dubeity. Lol. Please can we have more adventures of the Griffin?

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Series – please write more! 8 Dec. 2014
Verified Purchase
Just finished the 3 books in the series and am hoping for more.

I really enjoyed these books, exciting interesting story lines, good characters, no padding, not too complicated or deep.

I actually feel a bit guilty about the paltry price paid for such entertaining books – I’d happily pay normal price for new SF of this level.

4.0 out of 5 stars An enjoyable read. 27 April 2015

I have enjoyed reading about Adrian Tarn and his swashbuckling sci-fi adventures in this book and the others (Deep Crossing and Fatal Boarding).
Likable characters and imaginatively described aliens and alien worlds.
Highly recommended and looking forward to reading more in this series.

I have read all of Mr Mason's books. In my opinion 'Shock Diamonds' continues to show his skill at story telling!

Please note that this book is the latest in a series, if you visit Manson's home page, his first six books are available free,all are definitely worth reading!
