An enjoyable read with a few frustrations. The book didn’t suffer quite as much from the author’s need to describe everything in great detail, but the story wasn’t as exciting as the first book. There were several interesting incidents but the overall story didn’t hang together as well and the book just seemed to end part way through the story with so many plot-lines left unresolved.

Also the last chapter and the epilogue didn’t make sense, I realise they must be setting something up for the next

Better than the first

Either Mackey is dumbing down some of science writing or I am beginning to remember my college courses (that's my story). Love April in Hawaii and beyond. So many different ways to take in book 3. Freedom will find a way.

Three and a half stars. Nice pacing and good character development. Some new characters are introduced and add a bit of color but the action seems a bit unbalanced. This really, really needs a good copy edit.
