not sure how she will save these people or the romance....but she does.
My review of the first book applies here as well it's below.
i love this book. a new sci-fi series to read, YAY me!

The dislikes/annoyances-
1. the title- kinda awful-
syn·chro·nic·i·ty/
Noun: The simultaneous occurrence of events that appear significantly related but have no discernible causal connection.

yes, that is what happens in the book but really isn't that what happens in every story that starts with a group of characters that seemingly are not connected but then end up being connected in more ways than one.
and Astra is the galaxy system i think. i thought at first it was a planet or a union of people but nope its the solar system or something that the planets are located within i guess, still not too sure. Astra is mentioned but not that often.

2. the cover- kinda sucks. the Astra in robot font is cool, but makes it hard to read the title. the planet or moon or whatever background is blah.

3. wow umm can't think of a third... oh i can but it gives a plot point away. i found a certain act kind of not in character with how the people were described originally. made it hard to believe.

The likes/loves
1. everything else- but really where to begin oh number 1 love- psychics! as a fan of Mccaffrey's Rowan and Pegasus series it's nice to see another sci-fi series with psychic talents.

2. there a so many bad guys and good guys that are not like black and white meaning there is some good in them and some evil. you can sympathize with their causes/opinions and see their point of views and be like "okay i see why you are doing this. it 's wrong and morally reprehensible, but i see your reasoning."

3. political intrigue, galaxy wide civil war, violent racism or species-ism (i mean it's against the psychics i dunno what you call it), romance, mysterious pasts, ambiguous portents, and the always fun-a beautiful super talented amnesiac.

oh and i read a lot so i think i figured out Amii. can't wait to read the rest of the series to see if i guessed correctly. i might actually buy it *gasp* this one was free. ( )

Book description
Haiku summary

No descriptions found.

A year ago, Magnius Zoleki struggled with a life of boredom and an unhappy marriage. These days, he'd take those problems in a heartbeat. After fleeing New England, Magnius and Amii arrive on Barnard Station: a decaying trade outpost on the edge of oblivion. One misstep sends them hiding in places vagrants refuse to tread, all while they plot to rescue her father from the alien mothership. Her plan is nothing short of audacious--if they manage to stay under the radar long enough to execute it. To add to their troubles, the crisis with Xur reaches critical proportions. The Allied Confederacy refuses their demand for unconditional surrender, plunging them into a brand of warfare Astra has never experienced. Magnius and Amii try to stay neutral but get caught between the two sides and swept into the struggle. It's the beginning of a war that might kill everyone he holds dear. The last place he wants to be is on the wrong side, and if that doesn't tear apart what remains of his sanity, Amii Martin will. Astra: The Reckoning is the second novel in the Astra saga, a story that follows in the epic tradition of Cyteen and Dune.… (more)
