Fighting to remain one step ahead of SACOM, Nolan Peters and Megan Carson investigate the mysterious disappearance of their friend, Carl Wilkins. During the investigation, Nolan struggles with his growing affection for Megan, while she tries to cope with the recent death of her husband. Will the strain bring them together, or drive them apart?
When the pair uncovers evidence of a treasonous conspiracy that threatens the stability of all human worlds across the galaxy, they reluctantly put their trust in a SACOM investigator and a hard-nosed Army general to root out the conspirators. Will their trust prove to be their undoing… or prevent a galactic-scale military coup?
Search for the Phoenix is a continuation of Proctor’s first book in the series, Veronica Phoenix. I really enjoyed reading both books. Search for the Phoenix brings with it a new set of characters that were in the peripheral of the first book, but show you the story from another viewpoint. It then takes the story down a different path completely, but wraps it up nicely at the end. All in all, a well-written story.
The characters are believable, and the futuristic world the author has created is intriguing. It kept me interested and I wanted to see how it ended. I was invested enough in the lives of the characters that then end of the story mattered.
