Second Wave is the second book of the Amargosa Trilogy and ninth overall book in the Compact Universe.
During a failed mission to retake Amargosa, the starship Ban Ki-moon falls into the ocean. When it’s learned crew members survived, several resistance fighters set out on a mission to make contact. They are menaced by lycanths that aren’t what they seem and capture a prisoner who is more than she appears. They will race the renegade Lucius Kray to reach the ship.
