Initial thoughts: Even though I had enjoyed Defy the Stars, I didn't really have this sequel on my radar. I only listened to the audiobook because it happened to be available on Overdrive. I didn't exactly love this one either but it did surprise me. I found it to be a satisfying continuation to the Constellation series. It continued to explore the dichotomy between artificial intelligence and humanity.

Noemi was as stubborn as ever, preferring to act on her own initiatives rather than on orders from her superiors. That injecting some excitement into the plot and made things a little more unpredictable compared to the first book. I thought Able was more interesting as he straddled his existence between that of a machine and that of a human being. His internal dialogues led to some poignant philosophical dilemmas.

Overall, Defy the Worlds was a good book about biological warfare, interplanetary relations, the pursuit for immortality, sacrifice and loyalty. I'm a bit more curious about how the third book in the series will continue the story but again, I won't be sitting on hot coals waiting for it.
