Beneath the surface of a distant water planet in the last human colony of Civica, fears of an ancient enemy walking among them have brought tension levels to a boiling point.
Captain Jacob Stone wants nothing more than to live a peaceful life aboard his ship, the Rogue Wave, but while on a routine cargo haul, he and his crew discover a dark secret that could unravel the fabric of their society and ignite civil war.
When an act of sabotage kills thousands and throws the colony into chaos, Jake is caught in the middle, and must seek answers in a place no one believes exists. Can he find them before it's too late?
Exile is the second book in the Novum series.

Novum: Exile is a fun read and a good continuation of the Novum story. I had a bit of a hard time getting into it at first, but I think that's from not having read the first book recently, so my memory wasn't as fresh about the story up to that point. I'm looking forward to reading the next part of the story when it is released.
