I blew through this book in a weekend and not even a long weekend at that. It's 300ish pages, which isn't short for the genre, but it's short in comparison to how much more I could have read of this series. The third book is supposed to be coming, although not soon enough for my taste.
The protagonist in this book is different than the first book in the series. Instead of following Fiona and Gieo, this book follows Claudia and Olivia. I had a bummed moment when I first realized this, but it didn't last long at all. I was almost immediately on board following Claudia. I was also surprised and delighted by Olivia, who is one of the finest treatments I've ever seen of a handicapped character in literature and one of the only protagonists I've found in modern fiction with an existing severe, traumatic amputation when the story finds them.
I won't post any spoilers in this review, but I will say there was a reveal toward the end of this book that will go down on my list of all time favorite science fiction moments.
