Rin’s ex-wife wants Yumi gone, and a judge threatens to deport her if he catches her loitering about town with no job. Her desire to bolt grows stronger daily. But Rin won’t let her go. He’s fascinated with the stories she brings from home, stories that promise to save him from the madness they all live in, a meritocracy with low birth rates and malfunctioning androids. A headstrong journalist, she’s pushing her luck on Hikari every day as the

The absolute best thing about the books in this series is the worldbuilding, and that was no different in this second installment. I love how Pajonas created a world built on and governed by corporations—in this world, your importance and your value as a person are dictated by your employment. This is a major issue for Yumi. She’s spent her life being proud of her job (and, indeed, judging her own worth based on it, in some ways), but now she’s suddenly thrown into a situation where the skills s
I received a free copy from the author and voluntarily reviewed it.

I loved the first book in this series and was eagerly awaiting the next book. Chaos in Kadoma Ward is a great sequel and it's just as good, maybe even better than the first book. I got sucked into the story immediately and had a hard time putting it down, every time I had to stop reading I tried to fit in one more chapter. I really love this authors writing style and how her books always pull me into the story.

Tense Series. Chaos in Kadoma Ward is the 2nd book in S.J. Pajonas' Hikoboshi series. I read book 1 (Crash Landing on Kurai) and immediately 1-clicked Chaos. Yumi has gotten herself into difficult situations before, but nothing like being owned by a corporation. Despite her growing attraction to Rin, he is responsible for her and that chafes her independent soul.

In this book, we get to know Rin better, his deepest desires--for freedom and for Yumi. Can he have both? But when war comes, they must

So they have made it to Hikari.

Rin lives in Kadoma Ward. Where he works is like 40 floors up and you can see how the corporations have the city divided up. Yumi is in trouble from the time she steps on the planet. Follow Yumi and Ron's adventures.

Read and enjoy!!
