The stages for The Two Storms are set. One is a political one when the Russian and American Presidents are shot, the other is a devastating hurricane.

As with reading any sequel I always set the bar higher, and for this one I wasn't disappointed. The characters all fall into place and are easy to keep up with. Confronting a hurricane with a neutron bomb from a B-2 Spirit gets serious cool points as well. Going against mother nature comes with an awesome sense of class this round. But first the Intrepid crew will have to survive another attempt at time travel to get behind the storms with enough time in their hands to prevent them.

After that, saving the world from a Cold War comes down to taking on street gangs to get to bottom of who The Chinaman is, and just as importantly, who he is working for. I was left right up to the very end trying to figure out the mysteries of identities here. I will read on to Intrepid - Revelations. ( )

If you ever dreamed about being an astronaut and seeing the stars, in 2017, Intrepid is the space shuttle to take you there. But when Lance and his crew inadvertently become part of the reason for a devastating nuclear war on Earth, there stands one chance for the Intrepid to set things straight and save a lot of lives. It includes time travel, but it's not going to be easy and the cost of what they will have to sacrifice is set high.

Steve Stone adds a vivid touch to detail in this story and real characters you want to follow. He brings this ride right along speculative fiction, making you feel as if you're right there and a part of the thrill of it. Lance will do what is necessary against the weight of his conscience, while keeping hold of it as well. With the help of the teenager James, both will keep you emotionally bound to the humanity of it all. Even as their mission is ultimately turned into that of playing god to save a lot of people.

The second book, Intrepid - The Two Storms, looks to be an equally good read that I will be looking into in the near future. ( )
