    Awesome read! Was much more suspenseful and exciting than the first. The descriptions of all the different settings from space to the moons are so detailed and well written. This book had some crazy plot twists as well. Highly recommend

    Good, solid read. A couple new characters, some new drama, some new scenarios. I enjoyed this one. If that sounds a bit too positive for a 3-star review, well. There was one GLARING fault in the book that drove me up a wall. Two, actually. SPOILERS AHEAD. First, the scientist on earth has NO IDEA that his son is in space?!?!?

There was one GLARING fault in the book that drove me up a wall. Two, actually. SPOILERS AHEAD. First, the scientist on earth has NO IDEA that his son is in space?!?!? I mean, I can understand estranged dads, etc., but seriously? Super-awesome space pioneers of international missions to meet new lifeforms tend to be well-known. The fact that somehow this astronomer doesn't know that his son is in space seems . . . a little far-fetched. The bigger fault, however, is the "back-from-the-dead" character reviving the author does, where the guy who comes back doesn't even know how he survived the 48 hours he lay, exposed, with a broken visor on an ice planet. There's some vague hint that the Enceladus Entity saved him, but nothing is ever explained. Drove me bonkers. Anyways, this is seriously a good book, but a couple major omissions keep it from going on the all-time list.

    The story picks up from The Enceladus Mission and had mee on the edge of my seat waiting to see what was going to .... evolve. Fascinating answers to whether there is life elsewhere!

    It Keeps Getting Better I read this book as a continuation of my quest to see how truly alien intelligences could be described without falling into the anthropomorphic trap. This book succeeded well! I won't spoil it by explaining how, but to recommend that anyone who wants to read a wonderful series should read this one. What trip it was to the surface of Titan and back to Enceladus of the previous volume! And what an ending!

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. I can't do it. I just can't do it. There are simply too many questions left dangling. Marchenko's ALIVE? Okay, obviously, the Enceladus lifeform somehow reanimated him (a life form it has NO previous experience with or knowledge of), but Morris leaves this dangling for far too long. We FINALLY got a hint to confirm this, but it's another implausibility; the lifeform patched Marchenko's visor with water ice. Which might be possible, since at the surface temperatures of Enceladus, water ice is "as I can't do it. I just can't do it. There are simply too many questions left dangling. Marchenko's ALIVE? Okay, obviously, the Enceladus lifeform somehow reanimated him (a life form it has NO previous experience with or knowledge of), but Morris leaves this dangling for far too long. We FINALLY got a hint to confirm this, but it's another implausibility; the lifeform patched Marchenko's visor with water ice. Which might be possible, since at the surface temperatures of Enceladus, water ice is "as hard as iron". But why didn't the suit heaters melt the ice from the inside? Would the patch really have stayed cold enough all the way through to prevent that? Again, I have question this. Marchenko enters Valkyrie through the emergency exit, making a big point about letting out the internal atmosphere. And that it can't restore atmosphere after that until Marchenko closes the inner suitport hatches, that Martin and Jianying left open when they left the ship. But if they left the inner suitport hatches open when they opened the outer ones, why didn't the atmosphere escape then? Then he repairs his visor (admittedly temporarily) with a clear plastic report cover? A flat piece of plastic on the curved surfaces of his visor/helmet? I challenge Morris to try the same and make it airtight. Morris also mentions that the suits run at a full atmosphere internal pressure, so it would be even harder to fix the visor. Not to mention he made a point in Enceladus Mission that the suits run at LOW pressure, that's why the crew has to prebreathe before making EVAs. And when he leaves the ship again through the emergency escape, I assume the atmosphere escaped again. So how can he immediately remove his suit when he returns? Doesn't he at least have to wait for it to re-pressurize? (And just how many times can it do that?) He also keeps talking about "walking" in Enceladus' gravity of 1/84th Gee. That's 0.011G. He mentions in EM that you can't "walk" in gravity that low, it's more like moving in freefall, but here he keeps describing Marchenko as "walking". And Marchenko's going to cobble together an ammonia-based thermal power generator? The self-professed non-scientist? I think that's awfully optimistic. Mark Watney pulls off similar feats in The Martian, but he's an engineer by training. Marchenko's a medical doctor. The last straw was when he found a dead rat while retrieving the pipe to make the generator. Really? A dead rat? Morris tries to blow it off as somehow it got in during the test runs or while it was being transported on Earth, but I just don't buy it. I can't believe any credible space agency would be that careless. (Maybe I'm being optimistic, but that's still why I reject it.) So I'm done. I really tried to get through these books because I want to read the overall story, but I can't. There are just too many contradictions, implausibilities and "Oh, come ON!"s. My suspension of disbelief is completely shattered, and I'm done. Maybe some of these problems are explained satisfactorily later in the story, but in my case, Morris waited too long to do so.

    Wow, this is unusual. I gave 2 stars to the first book in this series, and 4 stars here. Why? Because this time two things seemed lots better. The first thing, I didn't feel like so much of my time was spent reading about how the room was decorated or how the ship was constructed as I did in the first book. Sure, those things are important, but let's make it quick! I have characters to follow! And that's the second thing. I cared about the characters.

Sure, those things are important, but let's make it quick! I have characters to follow! And that's the second thing. I cared about the characters. In the first book I found Martin to be pretty short on emotions. Kind of like a cross between Mr Spock and an android. In this one I found him to be much more interesting, because of how he dealt with his father and his girlfriend. I felt like they threw away the doctor's character in book 1. I mean, they might have said, "We have an infant. We can't risk the doctor." But they never said that, and he jumped out of a perfectly good spaceship. Ouch. But in this book I came to feel like his character was not wasted. In the first book I had the impression that Martin might have a bit of a spark for the other women on the crew besides his girlfriend. In this book it felt like they were all colleagues, and I wasn't confused about where his interests lay. Related to the second thing is that I found the Enceladus sentience very interesting, and after the first book I didn't know if we'd ever get to know it better. This book was very satisfying in that regard. I know that there is still an antenna on Enceladus and I can't wait to see it get used. I'm glad that I stayed with the series. I'm not saying that Mr Morris improved between books. I'm just saying that I liked this book as much as I disliked the last one. For sure I'm gonna read the next one.

A group of astronauts from several countries responds to a probe signal coming from the moon of a distant planet indicating potential life. Through the four novels, space travel is defined in painfully intricate detail. The entire series consists of a series of mundane problems, occasionally life-threatening, that arise with regularity - one after another. Expected relationships between characters develop, including a pregnancy. Shipboard AI's misbehave, save the day, stuff goes wrong, stuff gets fixed, etc. Liked. The Enceladus Mission series is pure SciFi. The "what-if" possibilities are there, which in my opinion, makes the best SciFi. No drooling zombies, aliens with clicking knees, jump scares. No sex, no gratuitous profanity. Coincidently? Breakthrough Enceladus is a proposed privately funded astrobiology mission to look for macrobiotic life in the volcanic eruptions of water emanating from the moon - true - Google it. Not so hot. Wording isn't particularly smooth - no contractions; more effort should have been applied to story rather than space technology, which can be boring to some readers. The ending left much unanswered. Written by Brandon Q. Morris, narrated by Doug Tisdale Jr., each book in the area of eight hours of listening, all books released 2019. Recommended to the nerds among us; lots of techy stuff to pick apart.

    This review has been hidden because it contains spoilers. To view it, click here. When I bought and read the precursor to this book I did not realise at the time that it was part of a series. I enjoyed The Enceladus Mission immensely therefore I looked forward to returning to the outer Solar System and visiting Titan with Brandon Q. Morris. Again, a well-researched hard science fiction novel that presents a plausible version of a manned visit to Titan.

Morris created a truly alien alien in the first book of the series and he does it again here. I shall not give further details away; it is better to read about it in the book. The action is split between the two moons of Titan and Enceladus. We meet again Enceladus' resident entity, which reveals it knows about life on other moons in the outer Solar System. This does rather contradict that it had no concept of other life in The Enceladus Mission. It does give some obvious foreshadowing of what is to come on Io to the reader. Maybe it knew about what was happening on Titan but the meteorite did not drop until the humans arrived? The writing could have been a little tighter here... The science fiction took a soft turn towards the end, which surprised me. I am sure the author had his reasons and I am sure I shall find out on ILSE's stop over at Io on the way back home. A few minor niggles reduced my rating to four stars but apart from that an excellent read for anyone whoo likes their science fiction hard.

They deal with many scientific issues as well as group & personal issues as they work toward completing hteir mission. Even though many of the questions regarding Titan have get answered (and several more have been raised), the adventure is not over. Apparently, the ILSE is being sent to Io next in "The Io Encounter", book 3 in the series. I am becoming a fan of Brandon Q. Morris. His stories are enjoyable; his characters are well-developed,and, his science is both accurate and interesting. This 2nd book in the series is every bit as enjoyable as the first and the reader continues to become more engaged with the crew. I particularly like Morris' extrapolations that are based on solid science. Morris is truly a hard science writer who also has the ability to develop characters and tell a good story at the same time. A great bonus is included at the end of each of his books where he presents science facts that are relevant to the story. The bonus in this book talks about Titan.

    This is the first volume of the series that I have read. These characters seemed to have a history. They might have been more real to me if I had read the prior volumes. They are able to drop their careers and take off for a few years to travel to Titan for this mission which is sponsored by a Russian oligarch.

Dropping everything to run off to Titan is not very credible. They don't do much training to prepare them for conditions on Titan. There seems to be a shadowy competition going on with the Chinese and maybe other countries, too, but this side-thread went nowhere. (I won't spoil it by giving more plot detail.) The team is from various countries, which helps keep the characters straight, but they don't seem to have the courage or strong motivation an oligarch would want. It's like they are doing it for the money, but they are not presented that way. The description of Titan seems very real. Good marks for researching planetary conditions and pointing out the dangers of walking through methane lakes. The team finds interesting stuff on Titan, but don't seem prepared to do much with it other than report back. That was not interesting. I had the feeling throughout that I don't have the whole story and the mission was only partially completed.

Furthermore, for those concerned with culture and racism, these books show how people work together and focus on the important aspects of life and exploration. Of particular interest in this book, we start to understand how we come to terms with experiencing an entirely new type of life that is more different from humans as humans are from plants. Morris does an excellent job of beginning to break this down so that we begin to see there may be a way to accept a life form that is in essence the oceans of a planet. I’m certain his other books will help us have more thoughts about how this could occur and find where there may be common ground between humans and other life forms.

I particularly enjoyed the speculation on lack of competition and evolution. It has kept me interested throughout and i will read the next in the series.

I would recommend this series to anyone who likes some space excitement.. one criticism is the lack of contractions used, which became quite hard to ignore throughout these books.

    I did not care for this book any more than its part one predecessor. Things just did not add up for me. For one, the doctor, Machenko, was killed in book one when his helmet visor was broken when he landed on the moon. Then book two begins with him pulling himself up out of a crevasse. Then the book gets more weird, to me, as the story progresses. Then the book just ends with them about to leave the orbit of one of the moons. Many have said they liked it but not me.

    The Titan Probe (just finished January 22nd) was the most exciting of the three I've so far read, namely previously "The Hole" and now "The Enceladus Mission" before "The Titan Probe". The miraculous, although unclear way, of how a member of the crew of ILSE was rescued is a discrepancy in the plot. However, the subsurface descriptions throughout the book are really exciting. Also the description of the alien life form permeating the ocean on Titan is truely pageturning.

The miraculous, although unclear way, of how a member of the crew of ILSE was rescued is a discrepancy in the plot. However, the subsurface descriptions throughout the book are really exciting. Also the description of the alien life form permeating the ocean on Titan is truely pageturning. The really interesting idea of transferring a human consciousness to a computer system is also interesting, although in the book this should be given some more attention on the hard science side, employing perhaps some idea deriving from quantum mechanics or something like that to present the idea for easier digestion by the reader and strengthen the reader's suspension of disbelief. Thankfully, the author has avoided efforts for humour, which unfortunately appeared in "The Hole". All in all, the book was really exciting and an easy read for me without tedious descriptions or accounts.

    Great hard SciFi The science is hard and relevant. I miss that kind of SciFi. Good follow up to the prequel. Probably not so good as standalone.

    Titan and Ensaladus Great and imaginative story set in 2047 about our exploration of two of Saturns. Amazing accuracy and great science. I cared for the characters.

    This series, of which The Titan Probe is a part, was excellent. Grabs your attention to the end.
