    This sequel refuses to stay in any pre-established genre box. Wh

    This sequel refuses to stay in any pre-established genre box. Where book 1 was pretty firmly in the "adventures on another planet" category, this book flirts with dystopia, alien battles, and creepy spiritual creatures. Somehow,  Tony DiTerlizzi makes all of these pieces fit together seamlessly. 

    I really enjoyed how the story of Eva Nine has grown more complex. Eva's character is really evolving and her world has grown from the tiny Sanctuary to a world witb inter-species politics. At first I thought DiTerlizzi was going to spend most of the book in the human city of New Attica and that it would take a while for Eva to see that something's not right. But DiTerlizzi gets us through this portion of the story quickly, while managing to build a satisfyingly disturbing "utopia." The pacing was perfect and the technology was intriguing and creepy. 

    The real focus of the series continues to be Eva's growth. Though some of tbe new characters, Hailey and Eight, really frustrated me, Eva remained true and strong. One of my pet peeves is when female protagonists hit the whiny stage (usually in book 2). While Eva had a short period of trying to fit in, it didn't last long and the experience just made her stronger.

    I'm anxious to see how DiTerlizzi concludes this trilogy, especially now that he's introduced some pseudo-magical powers and a god-like Mother Nature creature.
