Can’t-Wait Wednesday is a weekly meme hosted at Wishful Endings, to spotlight and discuss the books we’re excited about that we have yet to read. Generally they’re books that have yet to be released. It’s based on Waiting on Wednesday, hosted by the fabulous Jill at Breaking the Spine.

BLURB: Dazzling space battles, intergalactic politics, and rogue AI collide in the second book in this epic space opera by award-winning author Megan O’Keefe.
Sanda and Tomas are fleeing for their lives after letting the most dangerous smartship in the universe run free. Now, unsure of who to trust, Sanda knows only one thing for certain — to be able to save herself from becoming a pawn of greater powers, she needs to discover the secret of the coordinates hidden in her skull.
But getting to those coordinates is a problem she can’t solve alone. They exist beyond a dead gate — a Casimir gate that opened up into a dead-end system without resources worth colonizing, and was sealed off. To get through the dead gate, she needs the help of the enemy Nazca. But some Nazca are only interested in the chip in her head — and they’ll crack her open to get to it.
I haven’t yet read anything by this author, although I’m aware she is an established writer with a strong reputation. But space opera is my favourite genre – and the opportunity of reading a cracking tale set in space by a good writer made this one irresistible. And for once – no… I’m NOT going to crash mid-way into this series, I’m hoping in the coming week to read the first book, Velocity Weapon. Has anyone else got Chaos Vector on their TBR?
This sounds great! Though I’ve not read any of her other books either… I’m currently reading A Closed and Common Orbit and I’m really feeling the space opera love at the moment! 😀
There is a lot of excellent space opera around at present – so I’m hoping to add this one to it, too:))
I’ve been meaning to read the first book for ages – those covers are too awesome to resist – but I doubt I’ll get to it before this is released.
They are fabulous covers, aren’t they? I’m hoping to begin the first book this week.
I’m very excited to read this! Velocity Weapon was thrilling😁
Ah! I think you were the one who recommended this read to me:))). I’m looking forward to tucking into Velocity Weapon!
It sounds fantastic, to be honest. The author is new to me, but I will check this one out. I like the cover and with this summary it seems to be a wonderful read. Thank you for sharing and happy reading.
Thank you, Vi:)
It sounds thrilling and the cover art is stunning.
It is a wonderful premise – and I now know that it was Tammy who recommended it to me:))
Ooh, this sounds like an exciting read! Thanks for sharing! 🙂
You’re welcome, Ashley:)
Good to know it is part of a series… I need to weave more of this genre into my sphere.
At it’s best, it’s a genre that take a lot of beating:)).
Now that is a striking cover!
It really is, isn’t it, Barb? Looking forward to tucking into this one…
I enjoyed the first book, so I have plans to pick up this one too! 😀
I started reading it last night and that beginning is awesome… Hoping the rest of it is just as good!
I’m also hoping to get to Velocity Weapon this month before book 2 releases! I’ve heard awesome things about it (and the author). Fingers crossed we both love it! ❤
I started it last night – and so far I’m loving it, Kathy:)). So I hope you also enjoy it…
I’m not familiar with this one but it sounds like such an exciting read!
I’m a third of the way through the first book, which is proving to be a cracking read – so I’m really looking forward to tucking into this one!
My gosh that cover is LETHAL!
Isn’t it? I’ve read the first book and thoroughly enjoyed it, so I’m now looking forward to tucking into this beauty:))
