Comments A Path in the Darkness

  • Kara

    “A Path in the Darkness (The Intrepid Saga #2)” is not lesfic, but continues to feature terrific women characters as key and secondary characters in a military SciFi space opera.I liked “A Path in the Darkness” more than book #1 in this series, but a bit less than book #4 (which was rebranded as book #1 of a spinoff series, and which I read first). The book continues the story of the colony ship Intrepid and the voyage to New Eden. The SciFi elements continue to be very cool, and this bo [...]

    2-1/2 stars: I was so excited to read this book because the previous one was so good and this one sounded like it would also be exciting. Except it wasn't. I actually thought it was kind of boring. As I was listening to it, I just wanted it to be done. Even the action scenes couldn't hold my attention. On top of that, I felt there was too much focus on the romance between Tanis and Joe. I like a good romance and I also enjoy romance mixed in as part of non-romance stories, but it didn't work for [...]

    Ebook Grade: C+Not a review, just some thoughts for personal reference. Spoilers. This book starts where the cliffhanger in the first book left off--with Tanis coming out of stasis early to find the colony ship has been sabotaged and faces imminent destruction. The long and short is that one of the crew members left awake to run the ship has spent the time (40 yrs or so) messing with AI Bob and one of his human avatars, causing physical damage throughout, and sending the ship hurtling towards a [...]

    Forty years into the Intrepid's journey to New Eden, Colonel Tanis Richards is woken from stasis prematurely by the ship's AI as it is losing the battle against a saboteur apparently intent on keeping the massive colony ship from ever reaching its destination. With the ship headed directly into a star, systems and engines removed from the AI's control, and hidden dangers waiting on board, Tanis finds herself in a race against time to save the Intrepid and the millions travelling on her while als [...]

    I really enjoyed this second installment in the Intrepid Saga. It's not quite the thrill ride the first book was, but it definitely kept moving and was entertaining in all the best ways. It had a bit less action and a bit more character development, as well as a bit more romance. I am a fan of romance, so I was very happy to see the relationship progress, but at the same time there were lots of exciting twists and turns and battles to keep my inner fighter happy. The book ended on a very satisfy [...]


  • Jonmontanavega

    Little plotAt 45%. Same plot tension point over and over again. Someone attacks heroine. She ends the threat. Repeat. Again. Space Opera heroines always win in the end. So authors need sufficient talent to overcome the obvious. Cooper doesn't demonstrate it here.I've rated other books by this author 5 stars. They had a much broader scope.At 65%: Cooper has afded in the back stories for several characters. Better but There are lots of punctuation errors but mercifully few - not zero, however - s [...]


  • Usr Tau

    Ends up even better than its own prequel - pleasant surprise.


  • Sabrina

    Missed the markIt's an interesting, well written story and full of great characters. In my opinion however, it's missed the mark. It's just not as interesting. There's no pull, nothing that's so compelling I can't put it down.Possible spoilers ahead. Tanis was bold, brilliant and kick ass all in one in the first book. You do not get to see much of that in this second installment. I love the universe that this takes place in but this entire book took place on one ship (aside from a side mission o [...]


  • M.L.

    This is a little below average compared to the previous book. What I was missing the most was the expansive setting. Setting the book in just a single ship (even if its a huge one) kind of made everything else a little more boring.


  • Jean-luc

    The writing improved over the first volume but still cannot match what I usually read with other authors. 2 more books in the series, might make it to the end


  • Jason

    Warning: serious page turner that will consume your weekendI spent way too much time reading this over the weekend. Really great page turner. First, everything has gone wrong again. But as the story starts to take off you get a series of brilliant flashbacks to both ground you in backstory, and change the tempo. It felt like a really good idea to me. This is a series book, so we need to know more. Now I think that after the everything has gone to hell some of the shipboard fights were over the t [...]


  • Melvin Patterson

    Book 2 of a 3 book series was fun and addicting. I need to read the third book just to see what happens next. Although a lot of the action is implausible, its no worse than reading superhero stories which is essentially what the protagonist Tanis Richards is. If you're into space opera with lots of action and likeable, if somewhat shallow, heroes, give this series a try.


  • Clint

    Fun little Sci-Fi romp, kind of like a Stephanie Plum goes to space with an internal AI and body mods that make up for being the the right place at the right time, if "right" means getting shot and in trouble


  • Michelle

    Good sequel to Outsystem. There were a few spots building up the second storyline that fell a little short for me but I really enjoyed seeing Tanis' relationships with the other crew members explored.


  • Lisa

    I appreciate that the romance stayed mostly in the background, but jeez, these colonists can't catch a break! I didn't care about Jessica and am annoyed we spent so much time establishing her backstory so her villain could be introduced also. I'm not interested in the rest of the series.


  • Scott

    Excellent involved story, takes a bit of concentration but there is plenty of twists and even new interesting characters.This 2nd book leaves lots of new possibilities for further adventures in the Aeon 14 universe.


  • Kevin Beck

    Tanis and the crew of the Intrepid once again have to deal with sabotage and must make a long detour to fix the ship to continue their colonization mission. Tanis and Joe finally spend time together overseeing the ship during its long detour for repair.


  • David Goodman

    The person I thought was the hero,was not ,and went backwards in timeline in the 2nd book


  • John

    I read books one and two as a combined volume called Destiny Rising. See review for volume one. Hint - buy it read it and get the next book.


  • Leif Dolan

    Start of a new worldHow many things do you need to do to make a new world and a home? It makes me happy to read this book and see that love will be around in the future


  • William Howe

    Good second bookI could have sworn Tania saw two people carrying Amy to the pinnace, then she seemed to disregard the missing person somehow. The only true flaw.


  • Andrew B. Montcrieff

    Out of darkness comes strength and diversity!While the Intrepid is the central character in this book, the growth in the relationships amongst his passengers are focus. We learn more of the willingness and strength of the human race to survive, and the compassion of their AI on this journey. Fantastic continuation of the first book, and an exciting stop on the journey to New Eden!


  • Haden Pike

    Much like the first book, this one is a good read, but not fantastic. The romance worked in the previous novel, but it didn't really fit in here. The action and science fiction was good though.


  • Dale (Aus)

    I enjoyed this more than the first, a little more balance and overall satisfying.


  • Don Edwards jr.

    A great beginningThis is an awesome start to the series. Not stop action and intrigue. The characters are great, even the AI's have souls. I highly recommended giving this a read, you won't be disappointed.


  • David

    Another volume in this excellent science-fiction story. Good science, good tech and a good strong protagonist. Looking forward to the next one.


  • Phil

    A continuation of the first novelThe story of Tanis and Joe et all continues apace bringing all the characters more problems and adventures. This could have been the point at which many readers could have lost interest as it could appear we are just in for more of the same but Mr Cooper has knowingly avoided that obvious trap. The author has created an atmosphere of "care" here that now involves the reader in the storyline and ensures your interest in the longevity of the main characters.We now [...]


  • Sarah

    I really like the characters in this series and thrilled to finally get to read the second book. I enjoyed the first book a little more as it was full of action. In this second book however, we get to find out a little more about the two main characters and some of what has been going on in the background. There is one or two more characters introduced and while they bring more of the story to the forefront, the author digressed for a part of the book to bring us the story that gets us to the st [...]


  • Kristin

    I received a copy of this book in exchange for an honest review.This is hard-core science fiction. I'm not sure I was really ready for that after having just finished a fantasy book. This book was a level of science fiction that even as a scifi fan I wasn't quite prepared for. That being said, it was hard for me to get into having not read the first in the series. I found the AI's were a nice way to introduce new "characters" without them having to take up physical space in the scenes. I'm not s [...]


  • Niki

    This second book picked the story up where the first book ended Tanis wakes up and realize she is alone and not at New Eden yet. The ship is sabotaged and rides toward a star and she has to repair the ship to get it to get away from the star. She has no way to contact AI. She has to find the right way to continue and get her people safe to New Eden. Great Sci Fi Book, I highly recommend to read the first book first called Outsystem (click on the name t get there) The series is awesome, in this s [...]
