You won't be disappointed with this sequel... Marine Halley's Casino #2 By Mark JG Fahey Three years have passed since the events of Halley's Casino and Neb (aka Nebula Yorker) is enjoying his stint onboard as Mr. Tict's assistant. And his identity as a Triopelian is a closely guarded secret from all but his true friends (TeeCeeFore, Tict, Kel, Pic, and Picone) but that is all about to change when trouble comes calling. When Tict is targeted by a pair of alien siblings who seem intent on death, destruction, and more destruction, Neb is determined to discover what they thought Tict was hiding. What Neb uncovers is that a Triopelian Star Chart is being sought, a Star Chart that was lost long ago and one that the Triopelians would have never allowed an outsider to possess. Soon Neb and friends find themselves racing to the water planet Marine hoping that they will be able to obtain the chart and return it to its rightful owners. But there is more to Marine than first meets the eye and Neb's uniqueness may be what is needed to not only find the chart but to live to another day. But time is running short though depending where on Marine you are there is a small abnormality in just how much has passed. And then there is the legend or rumor of Airhert a being never seen but upon whom the loss of others has been blamed. Airhert is a totally enjoyable surprise as far as the new cast of characters is concerned, as is Purell an android who is a personality plus some and another welcome addition to this book. Now there are a few interesting developments that are (one would assume) laying the groundwork for the next book in this trilogy and they are most intriguing developments. One has to wonder just what is next in store for Neb and with a name like Nebula it is sure to be spectacular. Teens and up are sure to enjoy this one if they are fans of sci-fi with a good dash of humor flavoring it. And if you are looking for something new give this a try. Get ready for an out of this world - out of this time experience. ** As with the first book there are a few gray words/topics that sensitive readers may like to be aware of before opening the book or sharing with younger readers. I was provided a complimentary copy of this book by the author with no expectations except that I provide my honest opinion - all thoughts expressed are my own.
Marine takes place about three years after Neb is on Halley's Casino. This book takes you on an adventure of it own. It also talks about Neb parents home planet and more about his parents. I gives you lesson about history or at least a bit about Neb's history or his parents for that mother. There seems to be something going on that makes Neb go after a star chart. What is this star chart and why does everyone want it. There seems to be a dragon that guarding it and only one person who is to receive it. Mark put you in the story and you go for a ride. It adventures and filled with action. Who are friends and who are foes? What is an Air-heart? What an Ice dragon? Whatever happen to here home? What or who is a water moon? It all started on Halley's Casino when Neb see two guest acting strange. I believe Mark doe a wonderful job with this story. I can not wait to pick up the next book.
