The Palladium Wars #1 by Marko Kloos
Publication Date: July 1, 2019
Aftershocks is a very solid first book in a new science fiction series that revolves around six planets striving for stability after a war has ended. The story is told through multiple points of view – each showing a different area of how order is maintained within the solar system and how it affects different individuals. However, it doesn’t take too long in the story before we see that the “order” they are striving to maintain is fragile and occurrences of guerilla type warfare begin occurring. Throughout the entire book, you can almost feel the drumbeats of war coming – but the question is from whom and how are they doing what they are doing? In fact, this story is a very large prelude to something major – you can feel it with every page you turn.
