First draft of X-Calibur: The Descent

I've finished the first draft of the next book in the X-Calibur series, titled The Descent. Here's the blurb-
'Eight months after their escape from the hive, Arthur and the city of Camelot are mercilessly attacked by the advanced forces of the Mori-Gran-Ra. With their defences lacking, Merlin reveals a discovery he's made within the Hive's mainframe, one that could turn the tide against the Mori.
Now Arthur and his team must travel to a frozen alien world, where their only hope lies in a race of aliens that have the power to defeat the Mori Armada. But they may find that the price of an alliance is more than they are able to pay.'
This has been an interesting experience for me. Unlike the Benjamin Knight books, where I meticulously planned out each chapter and the story arc for each character, the X-Calibur books are written 'on the fly'. I know the general plot and a few of the important scenes, but in between I just sit down and write and see what happens! It's unnerving and exciting at the same time, so let me know what you think?
The Descent is now out to my beta readers, let me know if you'd like a copy.
