Now headed to the warmer weather of India to meet up with her aunt and hopefully get a new eye, Ionia only wants to figure out how to get along better with her mom, sort out her feelings for Den, and hopefully have some time to chill out.
But that won’t happen. Fraught with danger from the start, India seems to be anything but a safe haven for Ionia and Den. Filled with anti-droid politics and violent droid battles, Ionia finds herself trying to protect Den while at the same time, realizing that he may need time away from her to figure out who he really is.
Filled with action and adventure and even quirky humor, it’s science fiction but with the emotional twists and self-discovery that turn this sci-fi novel into a more than just a beach read. Timely for our culture, it explores what it feels like to be targeted for being different, and gives us a look deeper into the hearts of those who are.
It was fun for me to have Ionia and Den back in this well-written sequel. I can’t wait for the third installment!
I really loved that after the events of the first book, Ionia and her mom have come to a place of mutual respect, even if they still really don’t get each other. Ionia now trusts that her mother isn’t an evil monster out to ruin her life, while her mom is trying to give Ionia the benefit of the doubt and make some of her own decisions. Some. Because clearly there’s still a lot that her mother is holding back on, out of fear, out of love, perhaps out of shame. Their continued journey during this book is one of my favorite parts.
Vagabond Souls is fast-paced with a lot of action and robots, but still plenty of emotion and up and down relationships to give it heart and make you care. I appreciated the setting in a near-future version of our world that struggling with the implications of technology and how it affects who gets to be considered human. Ionia and Den (her companion robot) both have their own struggles on that front, together and separately. I can’t wait to read the next book to see how she grows and changes after the events of this book.
I enjoyed this as much a Frozen Hearts, if not more. I hope a third book in this series is in the works.
