They were coming. It wasn't so much the sound that revealed them. It was the subtle vibration of the ground beneath his feet, like the percussion of a distant explosion. It was their march. The dead tread of stone against sand. A ghostly gait of menace.

Alone in a desert world...a world he once called home, Zak is now a damaged man. Reckless in his battle

Overview

They were coming. It wasn't so much the sound that revealed them. It was the subtle vibration of the ground beneath his feet, like the percussion of a distant explosion. It was their march. The dead tread of stone against sand. A ghostly gait of menace.

Alone in a desert world...a world he once called home, Zak is now a damaged man. Reckless in his battle against the creatures that destroyed his family, he roams under the glare of the two suns, seeing phantoms--seeing Aimee.

Five years had passed since Aimee Patterson left the man she loved. For five long years she traveled the path of life, always waiting--always looking to the stars, knowing, hoping, that one day he would return for her.

And today was that day...

I was fortunate enough to receive this book through Goodreads First Reads and I am so glad I did. I had never heard of Maureen Miller or read any of her books before. I am now hooked. After finishing Beyond I immediately started Beyond: Two Suns and couldn't stop until I had finished it. I never really thought I would enjoy books about space but this book changed that. Beyond: Two Suns continues the story of Aimee Patterson although this book is told through the perspective of both Aimee and Zak. After waiting five years, Aimee is back on the Horus. She has spent those five years doing everything she promised Zak she would do until the day finally comes for her to go back to where she was first picked up by the Horus. When she arrives back on the Horus, though, she is in for a big shock. We follow the journeys that both Zak and Aimee go through before they are finally reunited. While there are some definite errors in this book (for example, the repeated use of lie instead of lay) they weren't so bad that they detracted from the book itself. In fact, the more immersed I got with the book, the less I noticed the errors. There were also a few times when it would be confusing about whose point of view we were getting because it would jump back and forth so much. Other than those two things, the book was an enjoyable read. The plot was original and unpredictable. You never knew what was going to happen next and it kept you on the edge of your seat wanting to know more. If you have not yet started reading Maureen Miller's Beyond series, I very highly recommend it.

Aimee and Zak - two people from different worlds, but with a love that spans the galaxy. It's been five long years since Aimee last saw Zak. He'd insisted that she go back to Earth and explain to her parents where she had been and, only then, would he return for her. She did as he asked and waited in the woods looking for the beam to lift her to the space ship Horus. Finally, it appeared, but Aimee got the shock of her young life. Zak wasn't on board and he was feared dead. Not believing that Zak was dead, she began to plan his rescue with a ragtag band of rejects aboard the Horus. I've eagerly awaited this sequel and it was well worth it! Two Suns is a captivating and engrossing story of two people who would do anything to find each other including risking their own lives. They were incomplete shells alone. The author does a fantastic job of letting the reader feel Aimee and Zak's most inner thoughts and their determination not only to survive, but to heal their fractured hearts. The secondary characters add much to the story. I loved JOH--his declarations made me laugh. If you've ever suffered the pain and joy of a love so all-consuming you could hardly breathe, you'll absolutely love the story of Aimee and Zak. Highly recommended.

Read the first book and I was like I have to read book 2 and I'm glad it I did this book is worth ever penny, it inspirational and powerful showing how even a ban of people others call misfits could pull together to accomplish something extraordinary and that only thing really hold you back is oneself. I highly recommend this book, buying book three now can't wait to read Raja's story.

Miller Is A Master At Creating Characters When I read Beyond last year I fell in love with the characters and the world Maureen A. Miller created. I was thrilled to receive a copy of the sequel, Beyond: Two Suns. Miller again brings a fictional world to life in which the reader can easily become lost. All of the elements that I loved in the first book are there, however some of the charm is missing. As the bulk of the story doesn’t take place on the Horus, but rather on Zak’s home planet, I missed some of the subtleties. The characters are older and more seasoned. Their obstacles are broader because they are on a planet and not confined to a space ship. New characters are introduced and again they have striking personalities. I’ve decided Miller is a master at creating characters. While I can’t say I enjoyed reading Beyond: Two Suns as much as I did Beyond, it is a very good book and well worth reading. She’s also left an opening for another sequel. Should one be released, I’ll be among the first in line to read it.

Great Fantasy Romance! Typically I am not a science fiction reader. It is not something that really interests me all that much, however, as I continue to learn, it is all about the story. I love Maureen A. Miller's romantic suspense books and her writing in general so I thought I would give her Beyond series a shot. I loved Beyond. It was so fascinating to me how she could come up with such a world in outer space and the ending to the story left me ready for more.   In Beyond: Two Suns, we find Aimee and Zak wanting nothing more than to get back to one another. Fives years has gone by and a lot has happened. When Aimee boards the Horus ship again anticipating quite the reunion with Zak, the love of her life, she is in for a surprise. He isn't there.  It is now her mission to rescue him from his home planet.  No one thought she could do it. She is a girl after all and other Warriors had already tried and failed.  Well, when a woman is in love, not much stops her! Maureen did a great job with the transition of the previous story and characters into this one. Aimee is in her late 20's now and isn't the innocent girl she once was.  She knows the power she has to make things happen and uses that. I was on the edge of my seat waiting for that reunion between Aimee and Zak and I was not disappointed when it finally happened. I loved watching the two of them navigate through their current situation with absolute support of one another, no questions asked. There is a lot going on in Beyond: Two Suns and all the wonderful descriptions that Maureen provides has you hanging on every word. Even the battle scenes will have your eyes wide because you don't want to miss a thing, as it moves quickly. The sweet romantic parts are some of the best. While reading this book I felt a wide range of emotions for Aimee, Zak and several others. There is a heartwarming, emotional reunion in the story that is simply awesome. You get to watch a group of people who have been kicked out of their homeland stand firm together to fight the enemy with nothing but their sheer will and determination. You get to watch love between two people that does not fade over time but just grow stronger. If you are looking for a captivating fantasy romance that takes you away from the realities of Earth, I highly recommend Beyond: Two Suns!

A wonderful follow-up to Beyond, this book takes the reader on an exciting, yet emotional journey as you follow more of Zak and Aimee's search for one another on a planet in ruins. I was roped in from the beginning and thoroughly enjoyed seeing where Ms. Miller took their story. This series is a must read for those who like a serving of romance with their sci-fi as Maureen never disappoints in either department.
