After reading the first book in this series, Osiris, I was so excited when Cataveiro was finally in my hands. Unfortunately, I found this book to be a huge disappointment, and I absolutely struggled to get through it, hoping it would pick up, but it never did. The book does not pick up where Osiris left off…it doesn’t even pick up with the characters from Osiris. In fact, only one character from the Osiris book is a legitimate character in Cataveiro. Instead, we meet Ramona, a pilot cartographer working for the government. She is the only pilot, and the only cartographer, so people are fascinated by her wherever she goes. I found her development flat and completely un-fascinating from a reader’s standpoint. Ramona spends the entire book looking for a cure for her mother’s terminal illness, which transitions into her looking for her actual mother, who has been taken. There is no resolution to this - the book ends with Ramona still looking. The other main character is also new, his name is Taeo. He and Ramona intersect only at the beginning of the book, before Taeo embarks on his own quest, which is similarly unresolved, unless you count complete failure as a resolution. Unlike Osiris, I found the character development in this book to be completely absent, and I bonded with no one. I really wish this book was a true series continuation - a reader could easily have a 1 paragraph summation of the first book, read this book in a vacuum, and not be wanting for information. I finished Osiris excited for book 2. I finished Cataveiro knowing I won’t even read book 3.
