The plot of volume 1 left a lot to be desired. The writing was choppy. A lot of scenes were left hanging and there were plenty of plot holes. Regardless, I decided to give the second volume a chance. Here we go.

It was better. The story wa

The plot leaves a lot to be desired. The writing is choppy. A lot of scenes are left hanging or simply don‘t make sense and open up many plot holes. Good scenes started and petered out into thin air.

“Trees are normally very general and all-inclusive with their wisdom pearls. When a tree decides to talk to you, it's a very, very big deal, as if the world stops, as if you are scooped up and held in a snow globe, weightless and womb-like. I felt their vibrations in my feathers, in the flutter of my little black heart.”
Kira Jane Buxton, Hollow Kingdom

Arkady Martine
“You pump the dead full of chemicals and refuse to let anything rot—people or ideas or … or bad poetry, of which there is in fact some, even in perfectly metrical verse,” said Mahit. “Forgive me if I disagree with you on emulation. Teixcalaan is all about emulating what should already be dead.” “Are you Yskandr, or are you Mahit?” Three Seagrass asked, and that did seem to be the crux of it: Was she Yskandr, without him? Was there even such a thing as Mahit Dzmare, in the context of a Teixcalaanli city, a Teixcalaanli language, Teixcalaanli politics infecting her all through, like an imago she wasn’t suited for, tendrils of memory and experience growing into her like the infiltrates of some fast-growing fungus.”
Arkady Martine, A Memory Called Empire

Kira Jane Buxton
“Big Jim’s eyeball fell out. Like, fell the fuck out of his head. It rolled onto the grass, and to be honest, Big Jim and I were both taken aback.”
Kira Jane Buxton, Hollow Kingdom

Adrian Tchaikovsky
“For all I knew, Ikea was mass-producing a flat-pack lean-to called the ‘Fükd’ just for the occasion.”
Adrian Tchaikovsky, Ironclads

Kira Jane Buxton
“I cannot recommend this to you enough: find something that you believe in, right down deep in the depths of your silvery plumage, and then throw your heart at it, blood and valves and veins and all. Because I did this, the world, though brambled and frothing at the mouth, looked more vibrant; blues were bluer, and even the fetid puddles that collected under rusting cars tasted as sweet as summer wine.”
Kira Jane Buxton, Hollow Kingdom
