"One of the most interesting and most memorable protagonists to appear in years." -K.L. Roberts
"Even better than the first book in the series, and the first one was great." -A reviewer
In The Refugee, Eshel's escaping his homeworld and living among humans created a furor that impacted the entire Alliance. After the Korvali had Eshel abducted and returned to Korvalis, Catherine and Tom embarked on an audacious mission to retrieve him, proving just how far the Corps and Alliance would go to protect him. But such a bold act may have transformed the Korvali into a formidable enemy…
The Operative, the second novel of the Korvali Chronicles trilogy, has Catherine, Eshel, Tom, and Snow facing new adventures… and new dangers. A violent incident on Suna thrusts Catherine into the perilous covert world of biocracking, where stolen genetic patents are bartered among Sunai criminals. A secret project involving Eshel's genetic work shows substantial promise for Catherine and Holloway… but also comes with tremendous risk if discovered by the increasingly suspicious Commander Steele. And despite the best of intentions, romantic connections unexpectedly develop—or rekindle—even when they're fraught with difficulties.
Finally, growing only more powerful living among outsiders, Eshel remains the center of escalating tensions between the Corps, the Alliance, and the Korvali… until something shocking happens that will permanently transform the political landscape for all.

I am enjoying this trilogy very much especially as I don't have to wait for the next book in the series to come out. Having said this, there were incidents referred to in the second book that I don't remember reading in either book to that point. It made for some confusion regarding the current event being read about. I even thought that perhaps I had opened the wrong book in the series. But that was not the case. I continued to read and the main theme of the story continued to stay focused. The characters are strong. The story line is dramatic with several unexpected twists. Read on!
I really liked book 2. Now I have to get the next one to find out what happens. Its a quick read and keeps the reader's attention.
