bookshelves: dystopian-speculative-fiction
Read from June 05 to 06, 2011

This one started off a little rocky. There was a lot of Po trying to get a girl and not fitting in with anyone in the new settlement, and trying to get a girl, and reading too much into innocent conversations and looks from girls, and trying to get a girl. A little much when it seemed like the whole first part of the book was about one boy trying to get laid. The second half picked up when the Chorus of the Word goes back to the Citadel to search for the pen and discovers that a band of outlaws has taken over and is terrorizing the town. I didn't enjoy this one as much as the first in this trilogy, but I enjoyed the way it ended and am intrigued enough with the direction North is headed to read the final book.
