Tartaran, the planet of deadly secrets is being held by the Elysium Alliance. General Sinclair of Col Sec thinks it’s time for that to change. He sanctions a new mission for those under his command in the Wildfire Initiative.
Kurt Stryder, recently reunited with his lost love Zara Hardy, now a vital member of the Wildfire Initiative too, is sent back along with Zara and the Wildfire Team led by Jake Riley.
Major Solon determined to exact a bloody revenge on Kurt for the death of his father, chases him to Tartaran.
Elsewhere Matt Hawk is on a mission of his own.
He goes on a hunt to root out the new commander of the terrorist organisation OMEGA, taking the fight to them.
In this new thrilling adventure that sweeps across the galaxy the Wildfire Team and Matt Hawk find themselves fighting toward the same goal in a bitter fight for survival.
Many new truths are uncovered and in the final battle, when all seems lost, only one side can survive.
In the latest book of the Col Sec series, Jan Domagala takes the reader on another wild ride where the stakes are higher and the danger more deadly. Resurrection is another stunning addition to an already fantastic series of futuristic high adventure.
In the world of Col Sec, the security arm of the Confederation, there is discord within their rival camp, the Elysium Alliance. The military, led by General Solon has plans that could throw the two galactic adversaries into another war, a war the Alliance is unprepared for. Senator Mikal Tovaric is well aware of this and is willing to risk everything to save lives.
General Solon is unmoved by the doves in his ranks. He is intent on the Black Knights unraveling the mysteries of Tartaran, a forbidden planet the Confederation and Alliance have fought over in the past. That world holds secrets that have the potential of producing weapons that could tilt the balance of power toward the Alliance, if only they can grasp foothold onto that world in the form of a colony.
General Sinclair does not want this to happen, so he sends his special Wildfire team to Tartaran led by Kurt Stryder, a man who has benefitted from a serum created from the indigenous life on that world that has given him super-human abilities.
That’s not the only problem that awaits readers in book six of Jan Domagala’s Col Sec series. OMEGA is back and headed by Tanya Wilde. Matt Hawk decides to infiltrate the organization, uncover its secrets, and cause as much chaos as possible to render OMEGA impotent.
Basically, those are the two sub-plots that inevitably merge in Resurrection. I found the author’s writing style to be fast paced and exciting. His characters move from one setting to another in life and death situations as they fight for survival over their adversaries.
Though I found Domagala’s plots well thought out and reached satisfactory conclusions, I would have liked to see more descriptive settings and less repetition in the use of language—something a good editor could have caught.
However, Resurrection: A Col Sec Novel is an exciting read for mature YA and adult readers. It’s not Star Trek, but more like Star Wars with an edge.
