Outlaw Trigger (Epic #2) continues the story of Scott Remington, this time with more of a personal issue. Although not a regular suspense thriller reader, I found myself captivated by the plot line including the unexpected ending.
The book cover was a good choice for this novel. It foreshadows what you can expect in this book. Our hero Scott is a target to weaken earth's alliance forces and it will costs Scott dearly. His reputation and character begins to crack under pressure. An all too real story that has played out time and again during mankind's wars. Scott and his loyal friends will now need to workout their duty in defending earth and loyalty to one another while being betrayed by those among the alliance with their own agenda. And just to add to the fray, there's an ongoing war with lethal aliens.
The book's multilevel plot keeps the suspense going to the end. Well worth the read for those who like the mix of sci-fi and suspense thriller.
Note: This book is rated PG + M for depictions of war-related violence and of murder, but contains only mild instances of profanity (hell, God, etc.) and one instance of "damn."
