This is a superb story featuring my favourite spaceship and crew. I honestly thought this time, they had bitten off more than they can chew!! The twists and turns in the plot makes it beautifully complex and totally unpredictable.
The action is fast paced, realistic and had me completely breathless in tension. This book transported me right into the thick of things, I had no clue what was going on around me, as I was planning and running with Danny....
I do recommend reading the series in order, although this could be read as a standalone too. Well done on a fabulous book Cam!! I can't wait to see what happens next and ultimately, how are they going to defeat this enemy?
Danny has another rescue mission to pull off - she is short on time, resources and intel - but that has never stopped her before! If that weren't enough, the politics and drama on the home front are heating up too. The decision to end the Empire is leading to some challenges as well. Another exciting addition to this epic space opera.
This is a fast paced read with a good balance of action adventure and interpersonal drama. Large cast, but good character development so it is easy to keep track of them. One of the things I like about this series (and Imperial Hammer that came before it) is that complications are well thought out and not just thrown in as plot devices and forgotten. Characters continue to deal with the ramifications of decisions, tech developments, gov't changes etc long after they were initially introduced, and often in ways that reflect true fallout and unintended consequences.
This is book 2 in the Iron Hammer series and deals with the shocking reveal at the end of book 1 - read that one first! Each book has a full satisfying story arc, no cliff hangers - but they are also part of a larger conflict that is building and should be read in order.
I was thoroughly enthralled by this space adventure with Danny and her crew. Suspense and fierce action, combined with a fantastic back-story, kept me engaged in this amazingly detailed world of space ships and space stations.
There's enough technical explanations to build a complex world for me to escape into but not so much that the details ever get boring or irrelevant.
The space-based world, as well as complex characterisations and relationships, are created by a succinct and insightful writing style that held me immersed for the whole book!
I enjoyed the unpredictable nature of the story and the interesting challenges the characters face in trying circumstances.
With focus placed on the adventures and journey of the heros, both male and female and their relationships it's a very positive story and a delight to read.
I can highly recommend this latest book in the Iron Hammer series and especially advocate reading all the books in order.
If you want to enjoy these characters in their fully enriched complexity then it's even better to read the Imperial Hammer series beforehand.
This is such a unique and believable world! To fight an unknown foe. In an uncertain place. An absolutely fascinating mission to save those who were taken. The most able and most intelligent form a team to achieve the near impossible.
From overall logistics of how to find the taken, to intricate details of their extraction.
Building a team of diverse people and anticipating the opposing response during the rescue. Personalities, dedication, loyalty and fabulous para wolves come together to create a brilliant story!
I really liked Stellar Storm. I love Danny and her friends. The plot is realistic, the action plan makes sense, and the writing is superb!
I have cold fingers of dread climbing up my back at the thoughts of this enemy as well as at the ending thought of what might be necessary to defeat them.
I voluntarily reviewed an Advance Reader copy of this book.
Stellar Storm is Cameron Cooper’s second book in the amazing, new, science fiction series, Iron Hammer. After reading the first book, Galactic Thunder, I was really looking forward to this story and it more than lived up to my hopes and expectations. Vivid descriptions. Realistic scenes. I actually feel like I am present with the characters as they interact with each other and I feel like I am part of the action on the Supreme Lythion.
I have always loved science fiction and have read almost all of the books by the greats (Asimov, Clarke, etc.), and I can truly say that Cameron Cooper ‘does them proud!’
This story is another wonderful addition to the genre.
