The Jupiter Pirates #2: Curse of the Iris by Jason Fry

First they find an ore freighter with dead bodies on it.  Then they hear their first whisper about Iris, a great treasure that everyone has been trying to find for years...

Harper Collins and Edelweiss gave me the opportunity to read this book for review (thank you).  It will be published December 16th, so make a note.  You can grab the first one and read that while waiting if you haven't yet.  I enjoyed the first one in this series, so I nabbed this when it was offered to review.  It's even better than the first one!

They've created a new name for themselves, but the truth of the matter is that this family is a bunch of pirates.  They're looking for goods they can use to support themselves and continue with more salvage adventures.  The grandfather is more metal than human, but he's still smart and even more crooked than the rest of the family.

This turns into a grand adventure with lots of danger.  They've got bandits on their tail,  Ty has been contacted by the secret police and given an errand to do, and there are two factions fighting a civil war over who has the right to govern the planet. They meet odd people, take a chance on getting shot, and continue to follow the trail of Iris. 

I like the action packed stories Mr. Fry writes, the characters he introduces, and the competition between his characters.  I can see much more coming forward in the series and I'm glad.  This is a good read and I want more.
