Call to Arms (Black Fleet Trilogy #2) by Joshua Dalzelle (****)

Call to Arms (Black Fleet Trilogy, #2)From Joshua Dalzelle comes the follow up to the #1 Bestseller “Warship.” 

Captain Jackson Wolfe survived the initial incursion of a vicious alien species into human space … barely. 
He had assumed the juggernaut that had devastated three Terran systems was the herald for a full invasion, but for the last few years it has been eerily quiet along the Frontier. 
Jackson now struggles to convince the Confederate leadership the threat is still imminent and needs to be taken seriously. While powerful factions make backroom deals he is desperate to find irrefutable proof that the invaders are coming and that if humanity expects to survive they must marshal their forces and make a stand. Now.

REVIEW: (****)

Much better than book one overall. I really liked this one. The story was faster paced, more action and the development of the characters were much better as well. I was listening to this on audible download in the car and found myself wanting to listen once I got home as well...unusual for me. I really only listen to books in the car, but I was liking this and wanted to continue at home as well. That's always a sign the book is interesting and fun to me. Recommend the series, but warning that the first book was a bit slow to start.
