The Softwire: Betrayal on Orbis 2

author: PJ Haarsma

series name:

On Orbis 2, Johnny Turnbull has a new home and a new job, one that pushes his softwire abilities to painful limits. JT is the only one who can communicate with the Samirans, large aquatic aliens who have cooled the crystals on Orbis for nearly two thousand rotations. But as the Samiransí work rule ostensibly comes to a close, they have grown dangerously agitated, and JT must find out why. What he learns is that the prosperity of Orbis is built on a brutal system of enforced labor -- and that everyone seems to have something to hide. Can JT appease the Samirans before their threat is realized? And if he doesnít, will his friends survive? In this second episode of THE SOFTWIRE, PJ Haarsma takes readers on another lightning-paced, cyber-fueled ride through the amazing universe he introduced in THE SOFTWIRE: VIRUS ON ORBIS 1.

Sci-fi fans will tear through this new adventure as Johnny Turnbull -- first human softwire -- finds more danger and intrigue on the next ring of Orbis.
