“Dammit, I’m still alive.”
After a bone-crushing defeat, ex-military officer-turned-traitor London Chandler is forced into hiding. Living at the farthest edge of the Federation, she drowns in pills and self-pity. Colonists who escaped Federation sanctioned detention camps also keep her company in an abandoned Explorer Camp.
Just when she thought she was well under the radar, she finds herself face-to-face with an even bigger enemy—New City. The logically driven society who secretly experimented on colonists for months is now launching a full-scale assault. They’re taking over the Federation colony by colony, leaving no one behind.
Deep down London wants the chance to redeem herself and save her nation the right way. That will mean working with The Agency, a covert government watchdog led by a shady Major. She will have to risk being found by the Federation government who’s determined to bring her to justice. Stopping New City will force her to confront the people she’s wronged. Will London be the hero she always wanted to be or become another casualty of the New City takeover?
After you read The Fall, you’ll want to dive into The Takeover. McGriff flips the tables, telling this novel from book 1’s antagonist, London Chandler. …So if you enjoy emotional turmoil and tough choices, you’ll enjoy this novel. Sprinkle in some sparks between her and the guy chasing her on a motorcycle no less (I won’t say why or who he works for—that’s a surprise!) and you got yourself a page turner. Meghan T.
