The adventure continues in Jak Phoenix 2!
Destroying a megalomaniac’s dreaded star cruiser was just part of another day for Jak Phoenix. The real trouble comes when it’s time to find steady employment.
The Miraltans simply need a pilot to help them evade trouble with bandits along their shipping routes. While the job doesn’t sound like it’s boiling over with excitement, it may be the easy money Jak and Baxter are looking for.
But, things aren’t always what they seem when Jak finds himself forced to take sides in a dispute he doesn’t fully understand. Never a man to volunteer help easily, Jak is quickly thrown far out of his element and finds his choices could jeopardize not only himself, but his friends and countless others.
Friendships will be tested and loyalties will be questioned in the second action packed Jak Phoenix adventure!

Jak Phoenix is such an awesome character that I couldn't wait to dive into another adventure with him. Williams does an excellent job of recapturing the magic that made the first book so good and carries it to a new level. From the very first page, it feels like getting back together with old friends. Jak keeps to his usual antics with Baxter trying to reel him in. Of course, it doesn't take long for Jak to find trouble and takes you along for the ride. That is where the real fun begins. Watching him squirm out of a desperate situation and into another never gets old. The only gripe I have is that in the beginning Jak gets conveniently released from his decisions at the end of the first book. In typical fashion, Williams essentially resets him so he can go off to do his thing. The rest of this book is too good to let this detail ruin an overall great reading experience, though. After all the twists and turns, I found this to be another very enjoyable read that all scifi fans should check out. I look forward to more fun from this author.
