In the wake of the fall of Netherea, the Intergalactic Alliance has worked on stabilizing the Xoron home world’s molten core. During the past four years, they have only managed to marginally improve the planet’s dire conditions.

Following the threats made by the Shaedon, several parties are tracing their whereabouts in hopes of stopping their plans. Serra Gomez, the newly appointed CEO of NanoTech Incorporated, is trying to find the android factory the Shaedon use to produce their army.

Meanwhile, the threat of an invasion from the Zar’aranos Empire looms. The increase of ships along the border with Alliance space is a grim indication that a conflict is not far off. Acovert mission is launched to gauge how deeply the Shaedon have infiltrated the Empire.

In 2015 debuteerde Jeffrey Debris met The Fall of Netherea, de geweldige start van zijn science-fictiontrilogie The Shaedon Resurgence. Dat boek is enthousiast ontvangen en de uitgever heeft reden om te geloven dat het tweede boek nóg meer in de smaak zal vallen!

De serie The Shaedon Resurgence is geschreven voor volwassenen maar kan zeker ook gelezen worden door young adults vanaf 16 jaar.

    The story continues with our protagonist friends (plural) rising to overcome the seemingly impossible task set out in the first book, The Fall of Netherea. JD is sticking with the clear portrayal of the individual characters and their particular traits. New races are added to the mix and we get some nice introductions and further material on e.g. the Kevaar, the Byndari, the Kraut and the Saranus. I particularly enjoyed the Kevaar portions of this book. The first book had a strong Star Trek feel about it. This book further strengthens that feel as the plot takes all the characters into open space on various vessels. The descriptions of these vessels seem very thoroughly thought through and there are clear variances to distinguish the space vessels of the various races. Where the first book had a distinct balance between sci-fi and fantasy (magic), this second installment is much stronger towards the sci-fi genre. Possibly this is because the first book was an introduction to The Ley Lines Universe of JD and now that introductions are over, the magic is concentrated to where is has the greatest effect. From the beginning of the book, the plot in The Zar’aranos Deception continues in the separate story lines introduced in The Fall of Netherea. Some converge early and others only graze seemingly by coincidence. JD mostly hints at these chance encounters and they may be build-up for the final installment. In The Zar’aranos Deception JD proves that he is not afraid of doing away with seemingly significant characters. Not in George R. R. Martin proportions, but definitely more than the Random Red Shirt Ensign Casualty level know from other series. It takes the story to an emotional level that makes you more personally invested and increases the desire to see the end of the antagonists. The tasks of the characters still seems unsurmountable and I for one cannot wait to see the conclusion of the trilogy. Suspense was built and then heightened. I am now ready for the finale.
