Requiem is a work of intense science fiction penned by author E. L. Strife and forms the second novel of the Infinite Spark Series. Following on from book one, Stellar Fusion, the threat to Planet Earth and so-called human life seems to be growing more and more, and the chances of survival are getting rapidly less hopeful as our would-be heroes progress into the new world where shepherds and survivors deal with the reality of their new situation. When a new threat looms, the fragile peace is once again threatened, and hidden secrets from the past threaten to pull apart the only alliance that might be able to save them all and the planet from total devastation.
Intense and driven from start to end, this is a rocketing narrative through space-age, alien and humanoid storylines to reach another startling climactic moment in the Infinite Spark Series. Author E. L. Strife works tirelessly to ensure that every page conveys new doom and drama, whilst also seeking a deeper commitment to her characters and developing them much further than the first book allowed time for. Here, readers can connect to the personal struggles of those affected by the first enormous battle, and as the second wave of carnage looms, so the psychological elements of the plot begin to come into play. This results in a sharply designed character-level arc which is set in a wider, exciting and cinematic war story. Overall, Requiem is a solid and startling continuation of a powerful, high-concept sci-fi series.
