Haunter Grey - Escalation (Last Ark - Haunter Grey Book 5), by Ross C Miller, brings another engrossing and entertaining page-turner from this dynamic and prolific sci-fi author. This attention-grabbing storyteller captivates once again with Castor and his team, who are in a race against time, on this occasion for their lives and possibly the end. The Regian Council is now comprised of G-series Unity Lords, The Giannas, along with Admiral Efrata-Landeez, who has been bringing those Unity to Regia. The Council is at a point now that they are strong enough, and capable enough, to take more Unity, and hopefully at a faster pace than they used to. Again Castor and the Greys are trying to save lives, and this intriguing plot deals with genetic modification - specifically a stabilizing extract. Castor tries to make things easier, but obstacles keep arising, and everything is at stake.

In Haunter Grey - Escalation, Miller does not disappoint. The plot seems more complex and intricate when compared to some of the others, at least in this reviewer's opinion, but it's a chance to go deeper and broader into the wider universe of people, planets, and other forces at play. It's good to have Castor back again and watch how he handles the conflicts and challenges that arise. At times they seem insurmountable, and things happen that you can't always predict, but that's the fun part of this suspenseful and sometimes dark drama. As you read, lots of questions come to mind. What will happen to those caught in the crossfire? How will Castor lead them out of this one? One thing I do appreciate is that the author provides some history, which is important for those who may be new to the series, and refresher points for those who are already familiar with it. There is the promise of another book to come. You'll find thorough character-building, interesting dialogue, and close attention to detail - from the food that is eaten to intricate physical descriptions of the genetically modified. For fans of stories around genetic modification, survival, and interstellar conflict, let this masterful sci-fi writer take you on an unforgettable journey.
