Shadow Call by Strickland and Miller - ESSENTIAL

Strickland, Adrianne and Michael Miller Shadow Call (Shadow Run #2), 419 pages.  Delacorte Press (Random), 2018.  $19. Language:  PG-13 (25 swears, 0 ‘f’); Mature Content: PG (genderfluid character mentioned); Violence: PG-13 (lots of fighting, some blood).

Qole and Nev saved Qole’s brother from Nev’s family and escaped with their lives.  When Nev is offered a chance to reconcile with his family and help them keep their place in the galaxy he takes a chance - and lands himself right into the murder of his parents.  On the run again, this time from his maniacal sister, Nev and Qole must find allies in unlikely places and perhaps to save them all, they will have to deny their own hearts.

Number two in the series is heavy on Nev, giving Qole a secondary, but still important role this time around.  This comes pretty close to Anne McCaffrey level on the quality of the science fiction.
