The second in the series, this is much better than the first one. Partly because so much time is spent away from the heavily stereotypes societies, and partly because Clarke is better narrator than Soler. We’ve reached the meet of the overall plot of the series, no more set up! Looks like it’s going to be interesting but I’m not desperate to need the next one straight away.

Sticking with this series is worth it. While I found the first book in the series a tad slow and lacking in description of the universe, the pacing in the second book is excellent and the storyline grows more detailed. I was craving information about the technology of the world, about the motivation of some of the secondary characters, and about the direction of Vigo and Violet's relationship. I enjoyed this second installment more than the first.

Wordy. Not a full story.
I was shocked when this book ended. Not because the ending was shocking, but because the book shouldn't have been over. It was not an appropriate story arch. It just cuts off and you have to go buy the third. But will the next be a full story? Or am I trapped buying book after book just to get one full story? I understand having a series, but I feel each one should be a complete story in and of itself. As I mentioned, this book has no story arch.
The other thing that annoyed me was the wordiness. Listening to all the adverbs grew tiring, and the dialogue was ridiculous. No one would take that much effort to say what these characters do.
Also, the word repetition. Palpable and flitted are used so often that my eyes flitted so hard upward into the back of my skull that it was palpable.
The concept isn't bad. I may invest in the next one. But these things are beginning to get on my nerves. I feel like the book needs a better editor.
