Reading the Wind (Fremont’s Children Book 2) Kindle Edition
|New from||Used from|
Six genetically altered children are abandoned on a planet that is supposed to be home to a pure race, and now they've been torn from each other.
The colony planet of Fremont was supposed to be free of all genetically altered beings—a new home for a pure race.
So when six genetically altered children were abandoned on Fremont, they were not welcome. They vowed to get off the planet by any means necessary. Joseph and the others managed to escape, although Joseph finds their new home hostile, frightening, and deeply challenging. Chelo is left behind with her new-found love, Liam, and her best friend, the troubled Kayleen. Both sets of teens must contend with hostile adults, daunting environments, and unexpected challenges. And when Chelo's very life is threatened, Joseph must find a way to save her.
Book two of the epic Fremont’s Children adventure science fiction series by Endeavor Award winning author Brenda Cooper.

This is Cooper's second solo effort, and the sequel to "The Silver Ship and the Sea", with many of the same flaws. But it is also a better book, and bodes well for the next installment of a series about genetically modified humans (and some not modified) on planets far from Earth.
Those flaws, though, make you want to find out what happened more than you want to read every page. Usually, that means some judicious cutting would have helped (it would have) or that it's pretty clear what's going to happen next (it is) or that the characters just aren't that interesting (they are teen-agers, and they aren't).
But I still looked forward to picking up "Reading the Wind" and did want to know how Cooper was going to put the pieces together, even if the shape of the completed puzzle was never much in doubt. So should you go back and read "The Silver Ship and the Sea" (which, by the way, has nothing to do with either) and dive into the series? Maybe. What about if you already read the first one? Then definitely soldier on.
The final judgment won't really come until the series is wrapped up, presumably in the next volume - but, as before, a better title and a cover illustration that had some relation to what actually happens in the book would help in the short run.
I see Cooper has a third book in the series, Wings of Creation , on deck for November 2009 publication. I'll be reading it.
