it was amazing

I loved SONG OF SCARABAEUS so much I immediately purchased CHILDREN OF SCARABAEUS right after I finished the last page--and, I'm not often compelled to do such a thing. It was worth the drive to the bookstore.

Creasy is a wonderful writer. She understands that good SF needs to show a change in the world, no matter if that world is here or halfway across the galaxy. Her world-building is stupendous and propels the plot, and her tech fits perfectly within the setting.

As for her characters, Edie and Finn are two of the most memorable characters I've come across in a while. Their romance made me ache. Granted, I'm a naughty girl who could have used a much more graphic description during the love scenes, but maybe we'll see some steamier encounters in a third book? More Finn would definitely make me happy.
