The second installment of author R.J. Amezcua’s Mantis Force trilogy, which he also dedicates to his wife and editor Sheryl, opens on the world of Letalis, which is underdoing the transition of the battlefield known as Stadageo’s ownership to the Letalis government, with Nia Xongol and her sister-in-law Taona Xongol executing their revenge and blacking out the City of Perrapenta. On the planet’s moon, Victoria Maja wrestles with guilt at the tragedy which unfolds, with she, Tola, and Em making religious discoveries. Nia and Taona also find themselves performing sacred duties, although they necessitate the two separating.

Meanwhile, a trio of wayward sisters, Fay, Mirinda, and Orisa Sotasen plant explosives on Stadageo, being rogue elements of the Marium Kahnet in the Malgavatta galaxy which had supposedly established formal ties with the Krauvanok Alliance. Orisa is interrogated about possible terrorism, which she denies, and her companions are rescued by operatives from the nefarious organization known as Choshek. Rumors of civil war abound on Necropis, with vast numbers of the Varkrato League and Tartarus government workers erecting massive multiphasic barriers south of the Omsook mountains to protect the hundred million citizens of Magiathep from Cremindraux radiation.

Rediquin gets her own chapter, with the aforementioned Cremindraux radiation impacting her vessel, and she visits a secret trading post to meet Zeta Three. The story ends with the deaths of two characters whom a Muak’Xod agent finds, with his superior informed, wanting to use the cadavers as leverage. Overall, this is an enjoyable sequel, although some sort of synopsis of the first novella’s events would have been welcome, and the absence of Jazrene from the story’s events is somewhat disappointing, although the sequel is very much on par with its predecessor and worth a read, with those new to the trilogy likely wishing to start with the first book.
