Summary

While digging through the ruins of a long dead civilization on the planet Mawcett, a team of Terran and Nordakian archeologists find an underground tunnel leading to a door in such extraordinary condition that it could have been fabricated as recently as that morning. They labor throughout the day, using every modern device available to them, but are unable to gain entry.  Then, in the early hours of the new day, seemingly in response to the screams of a frustrated, over-tired scientist, the door slides noiselessly open. Upon passing through the entranceway, the archeologists are stunned to find an elaborate complex in pristine condition. Summoning the courage to venture further, they enter a large circular chamber lined with strange electronic equipment, and immediately become engrossed in examining strange symbols etched into the floor near the center of the room. Suddenly, they're bathed in a strange light that paralyzes them where they stand. They watch in frozen terror as a clear, circular wall rises up around them. When the enclosed area begins to fill with a dense ocher gas smelling of persimmons, the dig site laborers, who had witnessed the activity from the periphery, run screaming for the entrance.  133,900 Words - 417 Pages

    Twolip Reviews recommended read “Holy cow! Greta van der Rol’s The Iron Admiral 1: Conspiracy was outstanding, but its sequel is almost beyond compare…. Deception is, in my humble opinion, one of the five best space operas ever written. Hands down!” 
    Loved Deception even more than book number one, Conspiracy. Well-written, fast-paced, a story of substance. You’ll read this and its predecessor again and again. 
    I cannot recommend this book strongly enough. The author combined everything that is great about science fiction–space travel, “alien” species, politics, military engagements, technology–and everything that is great about romance–a strong, sexy hero and a strong, sexy heroine–into one absolutely breathtaking story. 
    ... 
    Grand Admiral Chaka Saahren has the rewards of rank 
    …but he doesn’t have Systems Engineer Allysha Marten. Determined to keep her safe, Saahren will go to any lengths to win back the woman he loves. Allysha agrees to temporary employment by the Fleet, hoping to avoid at all costs the man she believes responsible for the death of innocent civilians, including her estranged father. 
    Sean O’Reilly has a plan… 
    …and it involves hijacking Allysha and convincing her, one way or another, to do just one more job—a job that would clear his debts and save his hide. 
    Allysha Marten must come to terms with her feelings… 
    …in the face of a reality that suggests she is a pawn in a growing power struggle, one where she will need all her skills and cunning to outwit a heinous plot that could result in the loss of billions of human lives. 
    When Allysha decides to tackle the conspirators on her own, she forces an impossible choice on… The Iron Admiral.
