And, as you may have surmised, I’m quite happy to report it’s a good one. In his four-out-of-five-star review, Paul “PrinceJvstin” Weimer writes:
The followup to Martinez’s debut novel The Daedalus Incident builds on the strengths of the first novel and shores up its weaknesses…the sequel continues the first novel’s mix of alchemy, intrigue, mystery, science fiction and high adventure into an entertaining package. Mike Martinez’s The Enceladus Crisis avoids some of the pitfalls that many second novels face by trying some new things, and giving us some new facets of his interesting universe.
Since Paul has given both my books good reviews (his review of Daedalus is here), I may be a little biased, but I genuinely think he’s an excellent reviewer. His knowledge of the genre is impressive, and his criticism is thoughtful and on point. Many thanks, Paul, for all your hard work.
As a reminder, The Enceladus Crisis is out in print, e-book and audiobook on May 6. You can pre-order your print copies on Amazon and Barnes & Noble, or go to IndieBound and order from your local bookseller. Not sure if we’re getting e-book or audiobook pre-orders or not, but I’ll keep you posted here. You can also add the book on Goodreads, too.
