Breach of Contract, written by Danielle Palli, is book 2 in The Data Collectors series, and I enjoyed the story about as much as I did in the first book. Most of the characters you’ll meet in this story feel warm and genuine, and meeting them again was like meeting a bunch of old friends.
Much of the story involves the political wranglings of varied species trying to take over the galaxy. Then there’s the other half with Lucene, Cepheus, Tanager, and a cast of supporting characters – supporting in multiple usages of the word – who are just trying to move on from the events in book one and start afresh on Erde.
Danielle weaves all of it together in such a way that it keeps you wanting to listen far past when you know you need to stop and go to bed. I know it certainly did for me a few times! The main cast feel like such wonderful people it’ll have you wishing you knew them in real life.
One of the antagonists, a demon named Jasper Set, is fun to root against. His diabolical plans are never far from disrupting the idyllic lives of Lucene and her friends.
Narration again by Graham Mack was excellent, this time ably assisted by the author Danielle Pallli voicing the female characters which added an extra layer of enjoyment and depth to the story.
Ultimately, I can’t wait for the final book of the trilogy. The setup for what comes next has me quite intrigued. By the end of this book, I was completely hooked.
