Book 2 in series takes up where book 1 into the dead fall ends..and this is where I tell you you must read book 1… not just because it’s a great book but in that it lays the foundation to this book and sets up Grey and Evie’s Meeting.
The Looge 👽👽👽… the most powerful being and self designated leader of Omni breaks his own rules.. he interfears with the timelines he has been observing for hundreds of years, he steps in and rescues Evie from a terrible fate…despite knowing that she would be saved by her key mate further down the line. The repercussions could be detrimental to everyone who has fallen through the dead fall but for some reason..The looge cannot do nothing leaving her to a terrible fate.
After inadvertently stranding herself and her sister in Omni and instantly seperated..
Evie has been lucky to avoid the weird and dangerous inhabitants that make living there a daily dose of life roulette. Having a prepper/ Uber conspiracy nut for a father has instilled skills into Evie that have helped her to survive.
After her luck runs out, Finding herself rescued by a ‘grey’ is the straw that breaks the camels back…all she has heard and been taught about grey aliens is at the forefront of her mind, however she finds herself beginning to like her rescuer, with his strange ship, wonderful and deadly telekinetic powers and a friendship begins to develop.
The Looge was a brilliant charachter and I found his transformation both mental and physical a ingenious piece of story crafting. Both wonderful and intriguing and totally original. The theme of biology taking away all personal choice and will impacting on both Grey and Evie.
I loved that Evie was able to crack his defences and make him feel despite all his technology. His serious nerdy nature and Evie’s fearlessness and sass led to some great and wonderful interactions.
The introduction of the key mates theory ( and the introduction of Doshak ) and the mild cross overs into the authors Iridian Test Subject Series was also brilliantly done. Despite some reservation around biological choices verses heart chosen choices.
The key mate theory left my mind reeling with possibilities and without going into anymore detail ( NO SPOILERS ) I was left with a lot of questions… but good questions that I’m hoping will have light shown upon them in a further book ( HINT HINT )
So if you hadn’t realised by now… I am a Sci fi romance nut, And I’ve read ALOT of Sci fi romance…the good, the bad and the downright rubbish. If you want to read a series that features more than just crayon coloured humanoids in space ( not that there is anything wrong with those ) but are left wanting for a bit more alien and a whole lotta story for your buck ( LIKE I DO ) then you should read this series.
I loved the first book, and I was estatic when the second book came out. It just delivered so much to my Sci fi loving brain…I adored this book…catching up with Characters from the first book was a welcome addition.
I am invested in this series and will wait ( not so patiently ) for more from this series and author.
