As winter set in tstrange things start happening. Their are incounters with both human and aliens. These encounters bring trouble to the boys.
The suspense is overlaid over the relationship between the tree of them. As their relationship grows so does the trouble. Im waiting for the last installment with baited breath.
The book begins where the first one left off and continued with the development of the mens’ complex relationship. It worked. Unfortunately, it went nowhere from there. Without giving too many spoilers, the book stalls completely. I appreciate the author’s inclusivity in this installment, with the introduction of a trans man and several lesbians, but it did very little to add to the underlying plot. It did offer some much-needed (in this genre, and publishing in general) diversity even if it fell flat in this instance by not truly serving a comprehensive purpose until much later in the book.
Along with the lack of a well-paced plot, the action consisted of mundane (and, at times, downright boring) non-events interspersed with small action scenes that served as just a blip on the radar. By the 65% mark the focus was too heavy on the characters dynamics (which also dragged) and not enough on substantial plot points. Add to that the truly egregious editing and this book was an all around stinker especially in comparison to the first one. What a letdown!!
Once again, I find it difficult to believe there even was an editor willing to put their name to this abysmal editing and proofreading job, and if there truly was an editor, they’re sadly in the wrong profession. Constant, and I mean CONSTANT, minor and obvious errors were abundant. They consisted of an incomprehensible lack of contraction usage, but also vocabulary usage!!, and grammar mistakes. And factual errors plus a gaping plot point just added to the mess. SO MANY factual errors!! Once some action began, it ended up being the kind of over the top, soap operatic melodrama to rival a bad telenovela. Seriously inexcusable for a (supposedly) edited book.
All in all, I ended up intensely disliking this book and despite my push to keep reading, I’m not sure I’m going to be able to finish it. And I’m questioning whether it’s even worth reading only to wait another month for another, possibly terrible, sequel and the conclusion of the series.
Austin, Mack and Tan have been doing all they can to survive in this little farm while they figure out if they should move on or stay. Especially since they’ve just had the first frost and know that bad weather is coming soon. But things are kind of taken out of their hands when 4 unexpected people show up, wanting food and maybe refuge for a day or two. Things seemed to be ok for the moment, until the spider bots showed up and quickly followed by the aliens themselves attacking. But it goes downhill even more, when the other people see that Mack is friends with one of the aliens. One thing after another happens, leaving bad injuries and death all around. And Austin, Mack and Tan don’t know if and how they are going to make it through. One thing they do know, from now on, it’s just them. They can’t take a chance on any others anymore. And that’s if they survive themselves. Because they know what the aliens are up to and if they keep it up, no one may survive.
Relationships take hits. It’s all a part of the work it takes to make one work. Especially when there are three people in the relationship as well. It takes a bit of extra work. But with the strain of the aliens and everything else going on, plus past things popping up in their minds, it’s putting things in an awkward position. The emotions are on overload, things are being taken the wrong way, and it’s taking time for them to process things in their minds. I don’t envy them at all. Trying to deal with their own minds and each other in a normal situation is hard, hard work, but in the stress they are dealing with, it’s even worse. But I admire them, because they keep sticking together, backing each other up, supporting each other and just plain being there when it counts. They are learning to speak up. Some things are ready to be shared yet, but they are learning they can count on and trust each other. Which is more than any of them really had before.
It’s a great sci-fi. I’m curious how book 3 is going to turn out, because there is a lot stacking up against these three right now. And the world in general. And Austin more than anyone, feels it’s time to try to stop all this. Mack agrees. Tan is reluctant, but who can blame him. It’s scary. But if you haven’t read these two, you need to. It’s a good series.
