I loved the main characters. Cillian is initially such a privileged jerk; you go from annoyance to pity to actually liking him. And Jagher is his complete opposite, very stoic and reliable.
My complaint - like the first book, this one needed to be longer. There were parts that were glossed over or a little rushed, and there was so much that could have been written. I wanted more on page. Because the world building is so interesting, there could be so much more to these stories. I am glad there is an overarching story through the series.
With all that said - I read this in one sitting because I just had to know what happened next.
I will read the next book and the rest of the series. These books are entertaining enough and I need all the characters' stories.
I don't think these should be read as stand alones, but as part of a series. They basically happen in sequence and each book continues what happened in the previous book.
I recommend this series, especially if you like alien stories!
I liked Jagher on whose planet Cillian and his crew land. He comes across as having some physically reptilian traits and lives in a hot desert-like landscape in tribal groups or clans called "kifs."
Cillian comes from, at first glance, a much more technologically advanced planet. However, while his society looks nice from the outside with all they have and can do, their culture raises them to believe in and live disturbing practices. I wasn't a fan of Cillian for much of this story.
The end of the story had some redemption for Cillian's character but it was almost too late for me. I also could have enjoyed a longer story that included much more world building. However since this is the second book in the series, I could have missed some of that having not read the first book.
I received an ARC of this book and am leaving an honest review.
That being said, this book was an utter dissapointment. I hated the main character Cillian from the beginning. The authors worked so hard to make him unlikable that I continued forward just out of curiosity as to how they would write themselves out of that.
When I got to 67% of the book and they still hadn't done it, my curiosity turned to anger. After even more of the book going by without any kind of improvement on this character, my anger turned to boredom and dissapointment. So I did not finish reading.
When the main character, and the person who's partly narrating the story is a condescending, entitled, rude jerk for most of the read, you just cannot enjoy a book.
Then there's the fact that Jaghers' character left me feeling lukewarm. I mean, at least with hatred towards a MC you keep the reader motivated for a couple chapters. If you make us absolutely adore the MC, then we'll finish the book in one sitting. But there is no greater sin as a writer than to create a main character that leaves you feeling... meh. I will not keep reading about this person, because I just do not care enough about them to do so.
Overall, the world and the general story of the book, and the series, is awesome. But this installment was a flop for me. The MCs were a let down in every aspect. I do NOT recommend this book.
I read it for free on kindle unlimited. Thankfully. Had I paid money for this... I would be fuming right about now.
