I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a fair and honest review. All opinions are my own. 

A ship and crew thought lost forever returns to a world vastly different from the one they knew, and with them comes a danger no one could have seen coming in author King Everett Medlin’s novel “Return of Anarchy: The Fall Of New Australia”.

The Synopsis

The thrilling sequel to Rijel 12: The Rise of New Australia.

A planet on the verge of destroying itself. A young woman determined to stop it before all is lost.

Ten years have passed since Earth invaded. The volcanic blast that turned the tide of the war has changed the face of the planet forever. What was once a scorched wasteland has been quenched by frequent rains. Farms now cover the surface. The citizens of New Australia have thrived.

Anarchy, the flagship of the resistance thought lost during the war, suddenly returns. To Admiral Slout and his crew, it’s only been 6 months since the raid on Star fantasy. But on New Australia, seventeen years have passed, and much has changed. The pirates struggle to reintegrate into a society with rules and laws. Unfortunately that’s not all.

The Anarchy brought something back with it. Something more dangerous than anyone could have expected. With the planet on the verge of civil war and leadership in disarray, can anyone stop New Australia from tearing itself apart?

The Review

This is a well written, detailed and well crafted novel. A sequel to the novel Rijel 12: The Rise of New Australia, this novel showcases New Australia seventeen years after it’s discovery and settlement. A flushed out world filled with various alien and human species and a grand mythology, the author does an excellent job of expanding on that mythology and creating a narrative that draws readers in. 

This is a novel that definitely works well when paired with it’s predecessor, Rijel 12. The novel does a great job of playing into it’s heavy sci-fi theme while also incorporating storylines of conspiracies, medical thriller, civil unrest and the expansion of a new civilization. When the past clashes with the future, a new world’s future hangs in the balance, leading to some amazing character developments and world building in the author’s novel. 

The Verdict

This is a powerful read that sci-fi fans will not want to miss. A fantastic sequel and overall evenly paced read, the author has created a world that readers can instantly engage with and get lost in. A world of outbreaks, political and social change and horrors no one would have ever expected, Return of Anarchy: The Fall of New Australia by King Everett Medlin is a must read sci-fi epic that readers will not be able to get enough of. Be sure to grab your copies today!
