I loved loved loved this book! It might be betts than the first, although that was wonderful! I'm so sad I finished it, I wanted to continue reading it for days, weeks even, I can not get enough. I'm so looking forward to Haven, especially now that I know what it is, trust that I pre-ordered Haven before even reading Limbo. Although I'm traditionally a fan of erotic books, I became a fan of Dima Zales though his collaboration with his wife in the Krinar books with Mia and Korem. You'll defini

The Last Humans book 2. Theo learned in Oasis that Oasis isn't the last remnant of Earth not turned into goo, because of runaway technology. It's a spaceship. Phoe regained many resources but not enough to know sense where they are.

Phoe needs more resources and finds a flaw in the Test. The one the adults take to become Elders. Her idea is to have Theo take the test to exploit the flaw. It turns out that what they a council meeting was called and Jeremiah, the Keeper, has forgotten it. This ale

This was a very interesting book to me. Now, I got to tell you that this is not my genre, not what I normally read. I wanted to try something different and picked up Dima's book (I have read both books in the series), as I love all of his wife's work and I know they collaborate on their books together. Well, I wasn't disappointed. I will say that I think this book is more geared toward younger audience (my opinion) but it kept me interested. Story is very interesting and Dima goes into a lots of ...more

The author obviously knows real science because all the AI shenanigans in this book seem mostly believable and yet so far away from our current reality. Having been to MIT, and seen computers interfaces that can learn behaviors however, I know Zales world is not far off. Maybe not in my lifetime, but I can dream. This is where the book gets good. It portrays a puritanical society who distances themselves from AI and yet they use parts of it, almost neutering it-if you will, until a bored young m ...more

I enjoyed Oasis, but I enjoyed Limbo even more. I feel like I'm getting to know the main characters better, and I have several thoughts about where the story is going from here, and I can't wait to see where it actually goes.

I thought the pacing was good, and I like the balance of action and philosophical musings. The interaction between Theo and Phoe is very realistic and believable, and at times had me laughing out loud.

I find this series to be very creative and imaginative (just like everyth

Great read

Just as good as the first if not better. Hard to put down from the first page. Looking forward to the next book!

I really enjoyed the first volume of this series, and was at the end, not disappointed with the second... however, I was dismayed at a couple of long passages with plot holes, and one long-winded scene that had me almost giving up on the book entirely. But I stuck with it, and the payoff was worthwhile. The long/boring passage redeemed itself in the end. If you find yourself at the mid point and ready to toss it, I highly recommend you think twice and give it the chance it deserves.

I found this part of the story difficult to get into. It’s taken me much longer to read because I lost interest in chunks of the storyline. It started to feel repetitive and I found that sometimes there were scenes that were described in far too much detail. I tended to skim read many of the fight scenes because much of the detail was unnecessary and repetitive. I enjoy the theory behind the storyline, but it was slightly too long winded for my liking.

The first book in the series was great but Book 2 was just a lot of running around and being chased. Not a lot of connection with other characters - focus was really between the 2 main characters only. I kept reading thinking it would get better, but was quite disappointed so will not continue this series.

The sequel, like book 1, is entertaining and an interesting story, but I can’t help feeling like something is missing. Perhaps the characters aren’t fleshed out enough or the plot is lacking a bit. Regardless I am eager to read book 3 and see where this story ends.

Do not read this book without reading the first one! This book and the story is confusing as it is already! I have no idea how anyone could come up with something so complex and weird like this, funnily enough, I actually quite liked it after reading the third book.

Really very sorry I read this second book. The first was just ok but I have this thing about finishing series. No amount of OCD will convince me to finish this series.

This is just a fun series. I'm enjoying the hell out of it, even though I'm not much into AI (often badly done in fiction) and certainly not gaming. And yet . . . ...more

As I said in my review of Oasis, I would read the next book by Dima Zales. I reached out to the author and requested a review copy of Limbo. I suspected that Limo wouldn’t be as good as Oasis, and I was correct insomuch that I was wise to the trickery in the writing. As a self-proclaimed trickster myself, I was on alert for red herrings and the like.

I enjoyed Limbo nonetheless. The writing seemed a bit stronger in this book than it did in the previous. I knew I wouldn’t be surprised again, but I

Too narrative

Monotonous narrative that didn't create an image of anything but what the main character or the do called AI was actually experiencing. Go here. Do This. Do that was this whole book and it made no sense! For what? To take a test of morals by breaking all the rules... What a waste of money!
