Read an Excerpt

Like a weary Hercules, Mark Talbot hunched in his battle armor. He perched on the rounded stone outcrop deep in the forest and stared up at the night sky. A combat-hardened Corporate Marine private—supposedly the toughest of the tough—he fixed tired eyes on the patterns and swirls of stars. Wondrous stars. A sparkling, frosty hoar that glittered against the soot-black sky.

What a world Donovan is. Humans landed there and thought it was ripe for picking. Little did they know that the dna on Donovan was different than the humans. Everything on Donovan was hostile to humans. They struggle to live there, being left on their own by the ships that dropped them off.Will they survive ? Will the Corporation come back to pick up the metals that have been removed from Donovan ? This book is fascinating as Donovan is laid out bit by bit. I'm looking forward to another book in this series.

I had to go back and re-read the first book and it flowed smoothly right into this chapter. Too bad it will be a while before the next book is out.

Abandoned (Donovan Trilogy #2) by W. Michael Gear In its own concept the stories of Donovan shows how you can connect to another ideology through addiction, attraction and exchanging ideas. The reader is connected and drawn into the story, like a spiral of a one way nature. The reader finds themselves addicted to the story, longing for one more page, one more moment on this chaotic and vivid world. I have been waiting patiently for the second book in the series. While Michael teased that he feels the second story was so above any others he had written he was scared that he could not elevate it more for the third book. I wanted to know what happened when I finished Outpost. Now I will wait again for Pariah just to see how the story will go. The vivid nature of Donovan, the remarkable characters, the dynamic interactions between the world and its characters is addictive. I feel like I have been remarkably changed by this story, this series, that an inner Quetzal has begun to talk within me, about how remarkable and encompassing this story is and how I just need a little bit more. Am I addicted, yes… will I find a resolution to this desire to know more, only the next two books can tell. But knowing the remarkable ability of Michael Gear to bring characters to life, I know, he will create so much more than I will ever anticipate. Now I need to read this book again. To see the vivid story line, the colorful characters, and remarkable science fiction world that is Donovan.
