Vortex is the second book in the Insignia Trilogy - we invited our Lovereading panel to review the first in the series, Insignia - click here to read what they thought.

Synopsis

Vortex by S. J. Kincaid

Now in his second year as a superhuman cadet-in-training, Tom's been promoted to a mid-level member of the elite training corps known as Camelot Company, or CamCo. As training intensifies and the moment arrives to impress the multinational corporations who will make or break the cadets' careers, Tom finds himself drawn into a power struggle that's more dramatic - and with far higher stakes - than anything he ever imagined. There are nefarious new enemies to outwit, old friendships that take on new faces, a romance that Tom is encouraged to betray, and an increasing desire on Tom's behalf to demand nothing less than 'justice for all' - even if he sabotages his own future in the process. But what will his idealism cost?

Reviews

'Vortex is a gripping, heart-stopping thriller that, in spite of its page-turning pace, masterfully deals with themes of identity, relationships and grief.'


'Julie Cross has created a gripping story with equal measures of action, science fiction and romance.' * Bookapoet.co.uk *'


About the Author

S. J. Kincaid

S. J. Kincaid is a fully trained nurse who wrote six books before Insignia was picked up to be published. She originally wanted to be an astronaut, but decided to become a full-time writer after spending a year studying in Edinburgh and living next to a haunted graveyard. Her favourite place to write is her apartment, and she has reverted back to being a lover of print books after a brief flirtation with (and expensive destruction of) an e-reader. S. J. Kincaid lives in Schaumburg, Illinois, USA.
