Overview

Return of the Continuums: The Continuum Trilogy, Book 2 by Jennifer Brody

Praise for Return of the Continuums :

"Strong female and male characters join forces to save what’s left of the world, while a subplot of love triangles adds emotional suspense. Classic themes of loyalty in the face of adversity and good vs. evil underpin this plot-driven science fiction adventure. Although this is the second volume of a trilogy, enough backstory is included to allow teens to pick it up without having read the first installment. Fans of The 13th Continuum will not be disappointed with this lively sequel." - School Library Journal

"Likeable characters, an intricate world, and imaginative settings combine to make a satisfying young-adult read in Jennifer Brody’s Return of the Continuums , the second book of the dystopian Continuum series." - Foreword Reviews

"The pacing and action are noticeably stepped up in this second outing [...] will please fans of the first." Kirkus

"The follow up novel to The 13th Continuum is nothing less than a home run for author Jennifer Brody. It builds on a fully realized universe, dense with an ingenious mythology, from book one, yet manages to take readers to a whole new world (pun intended!). Be ready to be angry at the ending, though, because it’s going to leave you clamoring for the final chapter in The Continuum Trilogy!"— Kirby Howell , author of Autumn in the City of Angels

" Return of the Continuums is a riveting, action-packed sequel that kept me up well past my bedtime needing to know how Myra and her friends would survive the dangers of the surface and reach The First Continuum. With plenty of unfolding secrets and an ever-expanding world, this is a series that just gets better and better." - Stephanie Diaz, author of the Extraction series

Praise for The 13th Continuum :

"Brody writes an intelligent narrative that is entertaining as it is introspective about the human race, its fate and where we might end up."- Roanoke Times

"Fans clamoring for a new dystopian science fiction series may appreciate this latest addition to the genre." - School Library Journal

"This gripping read is recommended not only for advanced teen readers, but for adults who enjoy solid sci-fi dystopian settings." - Donovan's Bookshelf

"A fascinating premise and compulsively readable debut. It totally sucked me in." — Robin Talley , author of Lies We Tell Ourselves

"With meticulous world-building and an epic scope, Jennifer Brody has created a fascinating sci-fi story. Readers will flip the pages, anxious to answer a question that will determine the future of humanity: Will they reach the surface? — Pintip Dunn , author of Forget Tomorrow

" The 13th Continuum manages to be smart, surprising, and a good time, all at once. That's hard magic to pull off, but Jennifer Brody makes it seem easy. Swift and surprising, this novel is such a confident debut. Here's to many more."— Victor LaValle , author of New York Times Notable Book of the Year, The Devil in Silver

I love this series! The first book drew me in with it's likeable characters and intense plot. Now that I'm on the second, well I never want it to end!!! Seriously one of the best reads this year. Jennifer Brody did an awesome job with this story.

While I definitely enjoyed this installment in the Continuum Trilogy, it didn't quite grab me the way book 1 did.  I suppose I didn't feel like I got the character growth and answers to questions I was hoping for in book 2.  Now don't get me wrong, this is certainly time well spent, and there are moments of gorgeous writing just begging to be highlighted and shared.  However, and I try not to have too many expectations, but the first novel set the bar a bit higher than this one reached.  I'm hoping that in the third piece of the puzzle, more things will become clear and we'll feel like we learn some truths and personal history for our two main characters and their various cohorts.  At the least, I would like to see their hopeful journey continue to express some meaningful beliefs about the greater good and what freedom truly means.  As well as survival adventure and sweet romance, such as we've seen so far.  I like that this doesn't really fit into any one genre only, and that even though there are predictable points we're still surprised along the way.  Aero still annoys me but it's not his fault.  I bet he'd be cute enough to get away with it IRL anyway. 3.5 stars and my thanks to the publisher for the review opportunity!

With Return of the Continuums Jennifer Brody takes readers back to her action filled Continuum Trilogy. Myra and her friends from the Thirteenth Continuum have reached the surface, but have no idea that their actions have sparked a revolution. Captain Aero Wright, now banished from the Second Continuum, is struggling to keep Vannick from detecting them on the surface while also trying to understand the power of the Beacon. Return of the Continuums introduces readers to more survivors of the Doom and finally reveals the identity of the Dark Thing. The story continues to reveal how and why the Continuums were created and more detail shared as to how the participants were chosen. I have to say that I love the surprises that pop up from time to time in this series. Right when you think you have it all figured out, there's that twist that makes you guess again. The 13th Continuum and Return of the Continuums are both structured to keep you on your toes and curious. Jennifer Brody continues the trend of a fast paced story full of hard hitting action, but there's a point where readers demand more character development. With only one more novel to go in this series I still feel like I don't really know these characters, especially Myra and Aero. They are supposed to be the sparks that ignite change, but they don't stand out in my opinion. Readers are told who these characters are: Myra the engineer, Aero the military Captain, Paige the doctor, but are not allowed to see for themselves what kind of people they are or might become. Despite that I find myself eager to see the story unfold. The Thirteenth Continuum is undergoing changes in power, but will it matter if they finally run out of air? Will Myra and her friends be able to find the First Continuum, save their people, and find a new home on the surface? So many questions left to answer in the upcoming finale! *ARC received in exchange for an honest review* Originally posted on Lovey Dovey Books

It didn't seem possible, but "Return of the Continuums" is even more exciting than "The 13th Continuum". You could dive right into this captivating sequel, but it will be even more enjoyable if you also read the first installment of the trilogy. Myra, Aero, and the mysterious Seeker are all major characters in this continuation of Brody's first-rate Sci-Fi adventure. I can't wait to see how it all ends in the final book!
