Um, this book looks super fascinating. Do I need to read the first book, Rainbirds, aforementioned? Or can I jump in with this. It’s not clear from this description if the book is a sequel.

MikeBy No need to read the first one, there is no overlap. But Rainbirds is a great read, too.
Laura Miwako Sumida appears very briefly in Rainbirds, in a memory of the main character, Ren Ishida, but she is not a main character at all.
