With more action, more drama, more compelling schemes and juicy
With more action, more drama, more compelling schemes and juicy drama, Hellhole Awakening cranks things up a notch for an explosive journey. As the second book in the trilogy, I was prepared to expect another fun adventure, but I was pleasantly surprised with how the plot moved forward with grander schemes and richer characters. There were some moments in this book where I laughed out loud, raised my first in triumph, or stared at the page in disbelief. Hellhole Awakening proves that this series is not one to be trifled with. This is a tale that not only promises great things, but delivers.
Beyond the myriad cast of enjoyable characters, the story really pushed some plots into new territory. For starters, the war kicks into gear with several battles, thus ratcheting up the action of the book. This is further supported by several smaller plots involving murder and treachery. Then there are the alien Xayans who finally get to spring into service and show off their telemancy powers. Everything that was built up and hinted to in the first book gets to play out in this one. The end result was a book more entertaining and fun than the first.
There were a lot of great moments in the book, but I don't want to spoil them. In short, there's drama, action and a whole lot of fun. If you haven't started reading the series yet, Hellhole Awakening may be the tipping point in your favor. It packs in space battles, assassinations, alien mysticism, moral character conflicts, dark humor and galactic strife all in one tight, interwoven tale. If you like sci-fi driven by colorful characters and a smart plot, then this may be just the book you're looking for. I give Hellhole Awakening a five out of five.
