Summary from Bloomsbury
To avenge the attack on earth, Peri and Diesel, have sided with the Meigworians in the new intergalactic conflict. They agree to rescue a Meigworian Prince, held captive by the Xions. But as they leave, the Meigwor insist that Otto, a gigantic Meigworian bounty hunter must accompany them, and Selene should stay behind to help fix the Phoenix. Our heroes capture the Prince and narrowly escape Xion, but the book ends with a twist - the prince says he is in fact the prince of Xion, not Meigwor, and they've just kidnapped him.
Nayuleska's thoughts

As expected, Selene didnt feature much in this story, bringing my rating down to 7/10. Nothing was bad but I really prefer female protags as I relate to them more. I love the concept of space sharks, and I'm making sure my shark loving friend knows about this series.
