The adventure, romance, and war continues through four more books in 2232: Chase Into Blackness. Covering the second year of the Martian War, this omnibus follows Ken Barron and his comrades Karen McMaster and Charlie Peters on their infamous mission to Jupiter. Over the course of four books, Barron and his 'Jupiter Force' are assembled and sent on the months-long cruise to the outer planet, to relieve the isolated (and largely redundant) colony on Io. Rife with ship battles, duels between special forces, brutal traps, and moments of profound personal loss, this mission left an indelible mark on the elite of Defense Command. Once again narrating, Ken Barron spares none of the potentially damaging details, and misses no opportunity to find the humor -- however grim -- in this first full year of hostilities between Earth and Mars.
