However, the world that Juliana Baggott created in PURE was definitely original. Her characters and her world stunned me.
In addition to the dystopian fad, there are an abundance of trilogies, especially in YA literature. And in the trilogy, the 2nd book is often the weakest, serving to barely move the plot forward, or leaving the reader in dire straights with an excruciating cliffhanger.
I can honestly say that FUSE is as richly detailed and plotted as the first was. Characters are advanced, more information and understanding is given about their motives and situations, and new plots are revealed.
The ending left me wanting for more, looking forward to the concluding installment, but not in an annoying-cliffhanger sort of way.
If you read the first book and are unsure about reading the second (I know I was because I borrowed the first book, but paid for the second) you will not regret it. This second book really expanded on the story, the characters, the Dome, and even the science part that we got a hint of in the first book.
The ending may also be the best ending I've read in a long time. Endings are hard and most authors are just OK at it. This book NAILED it.
My complaints are small enough not to even knock off stars, so you know they are superficial! I wished she would have expanded more on Illia. She could have added so much to my understanding of the world. Plus, I had so many questions about where she lived and what that village was all about.
Now comes the part where I have to WAIT for the third book. I hate getting into a series that isn't finished. I just end up torturing myself.
I absolutely love the El Capitan and Helmud characters. I was so captivated by what Helmud said. What he would repeat and how he repeated it. I loved the dynamic between the two brothers. I loved El Capitan's constant struggle with the burden of his brother. I loved his vulnerability.
I loved how all he characters were developed. I loved the complexity of Bradwell's and Pressia's relationship. I loved Partridge and his struggle to find out who he is and who he wants to become. I loved how Lyda becomes so much stronger despite her naivety.
I have to say I thought Fuse was even better than Pure-and I can't wait to read the final book in the trilogy.
PS I listened to the audio version and loved it-very well done!
The storyline continues with Bradwell's intense desire to learn the truth about the past. He is almost obsessed with trying to figure out the purpose of the Black Boxes and piece together the past. Pressia is becoming obsessed with finding her father and understanding more about the person she really is instead of the person she has believed herself to be. Partridge and Lyda are working on giving tools to the wretches to try to take down the Dome, while still being chased by Special Forces. El Capitan is working on building an army to take down the Dome.
The character who changed the most for me was El Capitan. He went from being a hard-edged military man to someone who has feelings and thoughts and a certain softness to him. Pressia has influenced him so much that he has become more of a compassionate person, even in his relationship with his brother, Helmud. I loved reading from his point of view and being inside of his head, watching him struggle with his developing feelings for Pressia and his desire to be a good military man.
I also loved the developing relationship between Pressia and Bradwell. In the first book, their relationship begins to blossom, and in this book, it continues. There are struggles for them but the feelings continue to develop. They both chase answers from the past, and in doing so, they grow closer. They also uncover a lot of the secrets about the Dome and a way that they may be able to reverse the effects of the Detonations.Read more ›
