Four months ago, the crew of the Ambit stopped Isaiah Drestyn from destroying an space station and reunited Jal with his family. Their hard-earned peace doesn’t last long before Jal’s sister is kidnapped, and her captors demand that the crew jailbreak Drestyn. As the Ambit crew risks their reputation to free the man they put behind bars, they find that they’re not the only Guild members gone rogue. Someone in the organization is crooked, and the Ambit is caught in the middle of it. The Ambit’s crew carries physical and mental scars from their last adventure, as Nash grapples with trusting others, Eoan with their new sense of mortality, and Saint with how much more he can take. Sagas’s earnest and action-packed novel delves deeper into Cascade Failure’s themes of betrayal, sacrifice, and extremism. The book will appeal to found-family fans, but Jal’s relationships with his sister and niece also shine in this installment and further ground his character.
VERDICT The second entry in the “Ambit’s Run” series is perfect for readers who want a cozy sci-fi that doesn’t sacrifice an exciting plot.
