Messinants (Pyreans Book 2) Kindle Edition
Exploring Triton, Pyre’s third moon, spacers inadvertently activate an alien dome. When nothing came of it, they combined their mining ships with the "Honora Belle," the aging colony vessel, to sling slush, frozen gases, at Emperion, Pyre’s second moon.
Nearly a year later, the "Belle’s" bridge crew, who monitors the alien site, is alarmed, when they witness a bright blue light shoot from the dome’s platform and merge with the shield. The alien site isn’t an entertainment stage, as Captain Jessie Cinders had facetiously mused. It’s a gate, and aliens have arrived.
Much to the consternation of the duplicitous downside governor and station commandant, the spacers, who triggered the dome, journey to Triton to meet the arrivals. Discussions with the aliens leads Jessie to understand these entities might be responsible for the destruction of Pyre, and they’re offering to resurrect the planet out of remorse.
The commandant and the governor insist the aliens wish to repair Pyre for themselves, and the citizens are confused about who might be right. Only time will tell which groups prove to be correct. The danger lies in the possibility that the spacers are being fooled and the aliens are seeking to conquer the planet. In which case, humans might learn the truth too late.
Sci-fi author, S. H. Jucha, follows the publishing of "Empaths," the first book in his new series, Pyreans, with "Messinants." Mr. Jucha is the popular and well-reviewed author of The Silver Ships series. The books in his first series frequently reached #1, #2, or #3 in Amazon’s top 100 science fiction categories of alien contact, first contact, and space opera.
If you enjoy strong characters, who represent everyday people and challenge the status quo, despite the obstacles they face, creating profound and lasting changes in their worlds, then you’ll find these stories intriguing.

There was a problem filtering reviews right now. Please try again later.
It's an uneasy first contact, there's light on the horizon and there are intrigues...
And of course there are slightly thick headed males who don't get hints (hopefully in the next book)...
Definitely recommended and I'm already looking forward to the next book - Jatouche !
Like the first book, most of the key players are the good guys, and the minor players are the "bad guys."
Much like the early days of Science Fiction, the core is the good vs. the bad.
It is a good read, and it is comforting because like Star Trek, we know that in the end the good guys will win it is just a question of how it happens and what goes wrong along the way.
Ad a special human empathy ability to make things even more interesting. A new race with its own special history makes for fantastic first contact reading without the usual war like overtones. I am sure all followers of Scott are longing for his next book and hopefully we don't have to wait too long.
Eventhough we are talking about the same universe as it makes reference to the part of the universe where the silverships are, this civilization develops in a completely different set of circumstances although the same premise applies.... a group of humans traveled to another part of the galaxy and due to certain circumstances they had to make due with what they had available and evolve from that. How the story is developed and how it absorbs you, is testament to Mr. Jucca’s skill with the provervial pen....
I can’t wait for the next one....

I love the potential of this story line and the character interactions are well crafted.
Looking forward to both Jatouche and Nua'll
