Exploration: Age of Expansion - A Kurtherian Gambit Series (The Ghost Squadron, #2)


Kill the bad guys. Save the Galaxy. All in a hard day’s work.

Eddie and Julianna are hell bent on tracking down Vas and making him pay for his crimes. He’s armed and dangerous, and to make matters worse, he’s on the hunt for a devastating weapon that could bring destruction to the Federation and all its people.

Someone has to stop him.

Eddie and Julianna, along with her trusty E.I. named Pip, must seek out the expertise of specialists who can break into the enemy’s network. That’s the key to beating Vas. They’ll also need more pilots and better ships.

But as Ghost Squadron grows, so do the dangers on the fringe of Federation space. They still don’t know who is behind all the attacks—the one pulling the Brotherhood’s strings—but no matter what, they’re going to bring this faceless enemy down.

Whatever it takes.

Experience this exciting military sci-fi saga and the latest addition to the expanded Kurtherian Gambit Universe. If you’re a fan of Mass Effect, Firefly, or Star Wars, you’ll love this riveting new space opera.

*NOTE: If cursing is a problem, then this might not be for you.




Whatever needs to get done, will get done! I am really engaged in this series. The first book had me hooked at the beginning. I thoroughly enjoyed Exploration with all the crazy stunts and gadgets that the crew continues to get. There are lots of over the top stunts and it is very action packed which, if you are like me, will keep you glued to a book. The difference between this book and the previous is that there are a bunch of “smaller” type missions that the crew has to carry out to gather more intel and additional crew members. While these kept me on my toes I felt it was missing a little something with the buildup of the “big” mission. The crew members are all different and the witty banter between them all is incredible. The writing is awesome and the world building, or space building, is incredible. You can feel how close the crew are coming together and being more of a family unit. I am in no way discouraged about how the series will continue and am jumping into the next book soon. I can’t wait to see what happens with this rag tag Ghost Squadron and the crazy stunts that they are sure to get in to!

Michael Anderle

Michael Anderle (ok, weird talking about myself in the 3rd person) (1967-Hopefully a long time from NOW) was born in Houston, Tx. A very curious child, he got into trouble – a lot. What to do with an inquisitive mind when he was grounded? Read!

Ok, done with all of that 3rd person stuff.

In the first 20 years, I mostly read Science Fiction and Fantasy. In the last 10 years I have enjoyed Urban Fantasy and Military Fiction. With this background, I’ve been blessed with creating The Kurtherian Gambit series, a well-selling, and fan loved, collection of stories.

The fans have propelled these stories beyond my wildest imagination and they should get all of the credit for sharing with friends, family and occasionally the random person on the street. They are fantastic!
