The writer has left multiple storylines open that I look forward to reading in the future. There are both male and female stories to be told. Example: What happened to Kim's family. There are also all the possibilities from Books 1 and 1.5.
Can't wait for the next book.
BTW the editing and proofing for this book has improved.
The reason I can't rate this book higher is because... it wasn't as good as the first one. I really liked 'Grim' and found that although the heroine had a tendency to speechify (esp. at the end) and thus subdue a patriarchy, I liked it. I really liked the interaction between characters, her daughters (THANK YOU--moderately acceptable writing of children!), and the fact that it was an alien-kidnapping romance ++++ world building/alien sociology, etc.
But Wray.... although it kind of added to the world building in terms of better understanding the 'laws' of the Torian culture, didn't meet the expectations of the first book. Firstly, it was a LOT more exposition and less interaction between characters. Even when it was just Kim and Wray. We were in his head, in her head, but rarely did it seem it was between them. There was what seemed to be the 'token' other-female-alien friend, and the usual confusion about whether the other guys in the story could rape the heroine or not... not cool. I also wanted more about how Kim wouldn't tell them where Earth was. That seemed a huge point in her favor in book one and barely touched upon in this book. And another problem I had was how the Healer seemed so very skeezy in this book becomes okay in the previous one? confusing.
Personally, I liked it, but it Grim will be my favorite--although I'm hoping for a Rebecca (or was it Rachel?) & Callen book 3. (This comment is made because her named switched back and forth--there are other editing errors to be overlooked as well).
Still, rather enjoyable.
Problem 1. I don't care how many family members or friends told you that you didn't need an editor. They are wrong, wrong, wrong. This is not your first book. Be professional and get editor recommendations from authors that you admire. Hire professional editors! No excuses! The mistakes in this book, while fewer than those in Grim, show a mediocre 10th grader's comprehension of English. You have a wonderful imagination, which is a skill I admire and envy, and it is rare. Good editors can make your writing better and help you sell more books.
Problem 2. It's incomprehensible to me how anyone can trivialize rape and torture. I expected this book to show Wray and Kim's arduous paths to empathy. Regaining trust in any individual in this hostile universe, let alone those who pretend to revere women, while outrageously subjugating them, is a huge risk. I wanted Wray to realize the part the monarchy played in the subjugation of all women, including Tornian females. I wanted to watch him value Kim as a sentient being who was using all her strength and intelligence to overcome her own adversity, while trying to elevate the status and safety of the human females that would be hunted down to repopulate Tornian society. If she was hesitant about bringing female children into this society, well, that was never properly explored either.Read more ›
