Overview

On the surface, the galaxy seems peaceful. Humankind prospers from the Capital World to the far reaches of The Corridor. But to those who can see the signs, it's clear something is wrong. Long, dark fingers are pulling strings inside the military, making clandestine deals with enemy states, and fulfilling some dark design.

Calvin is an intelligence agent working for the Imperial government. He's young, his methods are unorthodox, but he gets results. So when a former military hero steals a warship and goes rogue--threatening to start a war, Calvin is sent to eliminate him.

But as he chases his prey across the stars, he realizes they are both pawns in a shadowy chess game that shakes kingdoms, divides empires, and threatens civilization everywhere. And if he is to uncover the mystery and expose the conspiracy he must confront--and embrace--the darkest elements of the galaxy and throw himself, his career, and everyone he loves into the line of fire.

What a great ebook - it's hard to find good, affordable F&SF ebook content. Even harder to find good content that's free. The Phoenix Conspiracy will not disappoint on either count - not only is it a well-written piece of literature, it's also FREE! The Phoenix Conspiracy is about a captain, and his crew, who gets thrust into the middle of a big political mess while chasing across the galaxy after a rogue commander. What is this rogue commander trying to hide anyway? And is there more to the story as to why he steals a warship and escapes the authorities? I really enjoyed this book. It's a very well written, and humorous, page turner that isn't the least bit cheesy. As an added bonus, in my opinion, there's no profanity or other orthogonal content to get in the way of the story. The characters are easy to identify with, and have personalities that jump right off the page (err... screen). Give it a read!

Almost 900 pages and he couldn't finish the story. I was disappointed in the non-ending. It was good up until the last 80 pages or so and the author tried to wrap up so much in a 10 minute conversation between 2 key characters. And I probably have to read another 900 pages and possibly not have an ending. You might want to pass. It wasn't that good to rate diving into another book of similar content.

I was not expecting a mystery, but once I got into the story I was hooked. The story continues with Phoenix Rising, which I purchased immediately after finishing The Phoenix Conspiracy. I cant stop now, so I will also purchase the third book in the series. The series has a great story line and memorable characters.

Richard L. Sanders shows a lot of promise as an author. I really enjoyed reading his first novel in this series. The book has a complicated plot and the author only shows you little bits of that plot at a time, so it keeps you curious about how it all will come together. The book did have minor grammatical mistakes, but that is to be expected with a self-published book. I'm excited to see what the rest of the series will hold.
