On the planet Gleese, in a future so distant that Earth is a forgotten memory, unlikely heroes struggle to live up to the demands of their new roles. Picking up where Fabrick left off, Sired by Stone, book 2 of the Fabrick Weaver series from Andrew Post, is a whirlwind of action and intrigue. The gang reunites—Flam as head officer of the Geyser Royal Patrol, Clyde as a public figure and leader, and Nevele, always hiding her true nature, terrified that Clyde won’t be able to accept her love if he knew all her secrets. The crew battles space pirates, infectious blood worms, corrupt politicians, assassins, and mercenaries all while trying to stop the deadly Odium from stealing the heart of the city of Geyser, the wendal stone, in an attempt to build an army of fabrick weavers in a plot so outrageous, it might actually work.
Post brings to life an incredible world where sky whales and frog-like Gworks live alongside magically talented weavers like Nevele and enhanced humans like Aksel Browne, who eats bullets to shoot from his eye. While continuing onward in a race against time, the allies must also look inward, “Peril is a stage when we don’t put masks on but instead take them off,” underlining the universal need for love, acceptance, and self-worth.
