New York Times bestselling author of The Chemical Garden trilogyAfter escaping Internment Morgan and her fellow fugitives land on the ground to finally learn about the world beneath their floating island home. 35 starsNobody bores me uite as beautifully as DeStefano She is a very talented writer and her lyrical prose is absolutely mesmerizing Her writing pretty nearly makes up for 300 pages of almost comatose inactivity because it is simply a delight to read her words to see the way she strings sentences together and creates the most beautiful of images almost effortlessly Even after losing the intrigue that made the first book in this series Perfect Ruin a hit with me I was riveted by the way in which DeStefano developed her characters in this one the way she presented this new world and the decisions she made regarding the relationships between the characters Sadly at least for me that still leaves a fairly repetitive and uneventful book that felt like it lasted forever I understand the need to give these characters a chance to develop and become the people they need to be for the next book but uite frankly I was bored with the novel most of the timeThis novel is very different from Perfect Ruin in almost every aspect maybe not in most of its elements but definitely in what they focus on and that made a marked difference in my reading experience In the first novel the mystery and intrigue behind the story the beautiful contradiction between the technological and modern aspects of this monarchic deeply religious island in the sky and the sensitivity and thoughtfulness of the main character made Perfect Ruin an enthralling read that defeated my every protest about the plot Many of the same elements find a place in the seuel but to a much smaller scale There's also a mysterious inconsistent world but it is not explored as much as Internment was and in spite of having a few elements to it that were pretty fascinating those didn't play into the actual plot in the novel uite as much as the elements of Interment did Moreover the world wasn't explored all that much or figured that prominently in the way the story was told Certain elements of it were highlighted and enough details were given to piue my interest but they never built together anything concrete or that satisfied my curiosity There is not much of a mystery behind this world either There's some intrigue but it is not unpredictable or all that hidden in the novel and it has a lot to do with what can potentially happen in the next book Morgan's still a great narrator but her voice wasn't as compelling in this one mostly because there wasn't all that much plot wise for her to contemplate and the way she saw the rest of the characters turned somewhat repetitive What became evident to me about Morgan in this novel is that by herself she's not a very interesting character Actually she's almost a blank slate of a heroine and she is defined almost exclusively by the people around her and what they say and think of her In this novel Morgan had a lot of time to think for herself and by herself and it wasn't nearly as engaging as when she had others around her to buoy her characterization She's a fantastic narrator because DeStefano is a magnificent writer and because she's a lot better at defining others than at defining herself and making her character stand out I know being uiet and slightly unremarkable is part of her characterization but she's too much of an observant when she should be an active participant in her own story I liked how DeStefano played with the characters the new dimensions she gave them how alliances shifted friendships weakened while others flowered and how she twisted around the romance angle I didn't see that last one coming and it was an interesting way to play up the tired love triangle angle as well as a way to develop the characters involved and throw some light on some things we might've missed about those relationships in the first novel The new characters introduced were certainly intriguing and they did add to the story and the characters we'd met before becoming a natural fit into the group dynamic but even though she did a commendable work with all of the aforementioned the fact still is that those things took over the story and left the actual plot stagnant Truth be told there wasn't much of a plot in there There was a general idea guiding the story but it didn't factor in until the last third of the novel where it gave the novel a rather abrupt ending This one is a very slow moving read compelling in a strange way but still almost uneventful I do like the thoughtful and measured way in which DeStefano moved her characters here and truth be told this is a really good novel but because of how different the take in this one was from the first novel and how stilted the development of the entire novel was I was left feeling unfulfilled and that ultimately had a lot of weight on how I rated this novel I still think this is a good novel maybe not the strongest seuel but definitely a really fantastically executed product that just focused its attention on some areas in particular and did a great job at it while relegating others to the background some of which I think it could've benefited from Slightly predictable vague and confusing sometimes I think the novel needed a bit tightening up with the world building and the development of the main plot removed from the main characters It was slow going but I did enjoy the novel even if it did not live up to my expectations entirely In spite of everything I'm still eagerly looking forward to the next book
