A couple of years ago, I mentioned that my friend Jason Fuesting had published the first book in his "Echoes of Liberty" series, a military science fiction novel titled "By Dawn's Early Light".
He's just published the second volume in the series, "Foreign Shores".
The blurb reads:
Eric's escape from Solitude quickly turns into a desperate attempt to leave Protectorate space altogether. Where can they go that takes them beyond the reach of the Protectorate's State Security Bureau? They have only one chance to find out and it's too late to turn back. Eric and his crew will visit exotic, distant locales, meet new people, and kill them. Enemies both old and new will try to stop them every step of the way while newfound friends help from the shadows. Freedom has never been closer, but neither has the SSB.
It's a driving, high-tension novel that I'm finding very enjoyable, with some unforeseen twists and turns that keep me guessing. It can be read stand-alone, but you'll enjoy it more if you've read his first book, to set the scene. Recommended reading.
