Hands of the Colossus: A Steampunk Space Opera Adventure (Holly Drake Jobs Book 2) Kindle Edition
One massive shadow organization. One badass heroine.
Holly Drake just wants one thing: to destroy the Shadow Coalition and the evil at the heart of their business. With an endless supply of tips from the secretive man pulling her strings, Holly and her crew swoop in, break up the cash drops and steal the money. If one or two baddies die on accident, no big loss, right? They could do this forever, picking the Coalition apart till not even bones remain.
That is, until someone goes missing. In that moment, everything changes.
To save the victim, Holly and her team will put everything on the line to penetrate the mysterious Shadow Coalition and stab at their enigmatic leadership, the Hands who protect the Heart. Treacherous journeys across the 6-moon system in space-zeppelins, dangerous infiltrations of the Coalition, bartering with thieves and relying on the seedy underbelly of the 6-moons. Anything it takes.
But…is the whole set up a trap? How many snares will Holly and her crew have to spring to save just one victim?
This is Holly Drake and her crew of thieves. If they have to, they’ll go into the hornet’s nest to get the job done. Will it be their last time?
The Hands of the Colossus features a snarky, strong, bad ass heroine fighting against the odds to save the helpless.
If you don't like seeing a woman experience self-doubt, overcome obstacles, and then dominate, this book is not for you.

Final Rating: 5 Stars
Holly was eager to get this over with. The whole goal was to help them track the workings of the Shadow Coalition. And they weren’t sure this would even work! She wanted to get back to Kota and spend less time in space! But as Charly worked on the last transponder, something happened! Their view, which came from the earpiece Charly wore to show everything she was seeing, suddenly spun and only the ship and moon surface were still visible. There was no sound from Charly! Holly had to get out there and grab her as she was spinning away! She tethered herself, leaving Odeon to back her up, and leaped for Charly. Darkness closing in on her, cold and losing awareness, she crashed against something and hung on as unconsciousness faded her mind to black. Was this the end? Had they failed this mission?
This was an excellent continuation of this series, well-written and fast-paced right from the start. The characters were developed so that the reader had a full understanding of their strengths and weaknesses. Despite her inexperience and dislike of space, Holly was a strong woman and easily admired by the reader. With so much going on, this book easily keeps the reader invested in the outcome. Grab a copy for yourself and find out if their plans and schemes are successful against their enemy . . .
Very well written, with lots of intrigue and fast paced action from the beginning, the book has an excellent plot and storyline that grabs the reader's attention from the beginning and holds it until the last word has been read.
Holly Drake is a strong dynamic believable and realistic character with her own quirks and foibles.
In this instalment the Author gives background information regarding the colourful members of Holly's crew.
The different supporting characters, aliens included, also play an important role in the series.
Humorous at times, the scenes and settings are so realistic with such graphic detailed descriptions, they come alive before the reader's eyes.
Another awesome story by a great writer. I enjoyed reading the book. Recommended!
Gifted with a copy which I voluntarily reviewed.
