I enjoyed reading Project Tau, so I'm interested in seeing where Kalin and Tau's journey takes them next in Projects Book Two.

If you enjoyed the first book, I have no doubt you'll enjoy this one. It's worth spending the money on.

I've read both Project Tau and Homecoming now! They were both excellent books that I would highly recommend. Austin certainly left her options open to add to the series.

I know for a fact that there is a third and fourth. I don't know after that. She is definitely talented. You should check out her interviews and the author article of the interview with her and Project Tau and Kata. Thanks!

I really liked Project Tau, and I have plans to start this next book soon. I'm glad to see that it delivers as well as, if not better than, the first. Thank you for another splendid review!
You will definitely enjoy this! I love Jude Austin's writing. Please let me know how you like it.
So, I've [finally!] finished reading Homecoming. It was great. So glad I found the time to finish it. This one gave me more feels than the last, especially when the projects were exposed to a different kind of treatment (trying not to give anything away for those who haven't read it yet). If there's indeed more in the series, I'm so there!
Smile. There. Isn't that better? :D

I'm so glad you liked it. Jude is so talented! I think the second book was even better than the first. I know she's got another one planned, and I can't wait to read it!

Project Tau has been on my shelves since a while but still haven't read it. I will follow your recommendation and finally read it, so I can also read this sequel with all background information fresh in my mind.

I also appreciated that Ms. Austin brought out themes relevant for our world today.
I wonder what all themes the author has talked about? I guess it will be interesting. You have deeply analyzed the story and the characters. I thoroughly enjoyed reading your review. I might give these two books a try soon. Thanks. :)

Today's BOTD is Book 2 in the Science Fiction series Projects. Best fit for older teens through adults, this book is jam-packed with action, adventure, and believable characters. Both books in the series are highly recommended and come with perfect ratings from OBC! Thank you!!

This is an amazing science fiction thriller, a sequel to Project Tau, and highlighting human and non-human rights, corruption, slavery, friendship, and finding a home. The book is free on Kindle Unlimited and has a unique OnlineBookClub review. Congrats @JudeAustin18 on the BOTD selection.

It is amazing feat that the author could achive while writing a great juxtaposition of somber and funny moments. Great job with the review.

Tau and Kata on GenTech's adventures in the sequel Homecoming taken a good transition from Project Tau. I think the entire journey in the sci-fi genre has prominent elements to keep readers wondering.
Nice review, Kandscreeley. Thanks.
