"The Parsona Rescue is one of the best YA sci-fi novels I've read the entire year. I absolutely loved this book and cannot wait for the next installment. Don't let it pass you by! Whether you are a fan of sci-fi, or simply a fan of adventure and love stories, this novel shouldn't be missed!" --The Hiding Spot
(on Molly Fyde and the Parsona Rescue)

(on Molly Fyde and the Parsona Rescue)

About the Author

Hugh Howey's underground sensation, Molly Fyde and the Parsona Rescue took readers and reviewers by surprise in 2009. Now, the amazing ending to one of the year's best books becomes the launching point for the sensational sequel, Molly Fyde and the Land of Light. Howey lives in Boone, NC where he is hard at work on the next two entries of Molly's amazing saga.

EXCITING, BREATHTAKING, ANXIOUS ANTICIPATION: There are not enough words in this earthling's vernacular that can adequately describe how outstanding "Molly Fyde and the Land of Light" is. From beginning to end, I was captivated by this amazing story with action and adventure so intense, that at times I found myself holding my breath with a white-knuckled grip on my book. Hugh Howey is a gifted storyteller, and I look forward to book number three - the release of which will undoubtedly feel to me like it is light years away. I cannot wait!

I loved this one even more than Hugh's debut novel: Molly Fyde and the Parsona Resuce. This book has footnotes for the science fiction terms that I didn't understand and that was a great addition to the storyline. I read the end of this book by flashlight (so that I didn't wake up the dogs) early into the morning. The worst part of the book is that's I have finished reading it and Molly, Cole, and Anlyn are all in limbo somewhere in space and I don't know what is going to happen to them next. I do hope that the next sequel is coming soooooon.

The amazing tale of Molly Fyde just keeps getting better. It's not just the ending of the book that keeps me wanting more; I feel a genuine interest in the cast of characters and what is going to happen next. I find myself wanting to rush ahead to see how each situation will resolve and, at the same time, wanting to linger and enjoy the unfolding of the scenery and characters.

Having read very little sci fi or young adult books (never even read a Harry Potter!), I started this series as a favor to someone and now I'm hooked. Molly Fyde is so much more than just a YA sci fi series. It is, for me, a roller coaster of emotions and adventure that includes some thought provoking ideas that are just as relevant for here and today as they are for the locales and future date of the story. There is a little bit of something for reader of every level without feeling like it's dumbed down, unbalanced, or patched together.

I feel like I just got off the best ride at the county fair and am now standing in line for another ticket. Whatever the next adventure holds for Molly, I know I will be along.

I'm going to try to express how much I really loved this book and why, without giving any of the story away... because finding out what happens in the story on your own is worth it!

You know those books you read that have action or mystery in them... and you get bored with the explanations/paths that are being taken... and they make you want to flip to the back of the book to find out what happened because you are so frustrated? Well THIS IS NOT ONE OF THOSE BOOKS! I found myself excited to read every word, amazed at the situations, smiling at the story, and my heart racing with the characters in places.

As I sit here thinking about the story, I wonder how Hugh Howey fit so much into his pages. He did such a great job of showing the story. I feel like I walked (or flew) right along with the characters and confronted the same things they did. And the characters... what a motley crew that is! I cannot wait to see who comes back, who gets introduced or what happens in the next book!

Another thing I liked about this book is that the focus of the story telling got broader, we saw different viewpoints and jumped from character to character. Very good writing!

I absolutely loved the first book in this series, "Molly Fyde and the Parsona Rescue" and I was so excited when this book came! Now I will be waiting for the next book because I love this story and can't wait to see what happens next!

Wonderful follow-up (second in a series of three, I think) book. Equals and maybe, close to surpasses, the first book, by Hugh Howey, Molly Fyde and the Persona Rescue. Molly Fyde and the Parsona Rescue

Lots of action and more adventures pulled me through this one quickly and then, as so many of the old-timey Saturday morning serial movies did, left me hanging from the cliff at the end of the book. Now, eagerly awaiting the third installment to this Sci-Fi series.

This author uses plots twists and other "writing devices" skillfully and writes to a level for an intelligent reader of any age group (except the very youngest). Very creative.

Molly is a wonderful centerpiece character in the books and a great "s-hero"; and her friends are nicely dimensional and add their individual aptitudes and personalities to support and boost the story. Who else, but Molly, has a fine looking Portuguese boyfriend AND navigator at her side? And, there's more...

Believable, readable, and just complex enough to engage your brain, with interesting viewpoints of both the previous events and the things happening in current/book time.

Read the first book before you read this one. See the link to the first book linked above in the first paragraph of this review. I believe you will enjoy both of them and get into another world for a great dose of living vicariously in the future.

Molly Fyde and the Parsona Rescue was a wonderful debut, and earned a 4-star rating from me. Naturally, I was eager to read the sequel, Molly Fyde and the Land of Light, but it surpassed all of my expectations! 5-stars, no question.

Mr. Howey brings us right back into the story, but this time divulges more and more information from the perspective of the characters around Molly. I loved hearing the story from these different perspectives -- it added texture and depth to the events. Anlyn's story -- and that of her people -- is compelling and unexpected, and holds great promise for Book 3! I'd rather not give any of the story away, so I won't discuss specifics here.

The themes raised, however, are truly universal: How is the safety of one (or the few) to be measured against the safety of the many, and who gets to make those choices? How much of what goes on in our lives (and universe at large) is within our control (or even within our comprehension) and how much is not? How do we forge bonds of friendship and trust -- and with whom -- and how do we measure loyalty?

Hugh Howey is proving to be a highly-skilled storyteller with a gift for detail and pacing. He's got my attention; I'll be eagerly awaiting Molly Fyde and The Blood of Billions!! Oh, and I'd like a Wadi Thooo, please.
