The novel takes off right where the first ended and we are brought up to speed masterfully, and sent deeper in the world. The planet, Artemis, has many secrets, and the most fascinating aspect of the book involves the planet itself coming alive, becoming conscious, which began in the first novel.
The poetic interludes from the point of view of the planet were so awesome, and this aspect of the book was most interesting for me. What is it like for a person to mentally connect with an awakened planet and have communication? I enjoyed how this question was answered and explored.
Lindskold shows us her detailed world with all the senses what’s it’s like to truly live there. The beautiful planet, Artemis has been lost for 500 years since an apocalyptic war destroyed the far off civilization that built it as a game preserve and safari/pleasure planet.
I highly recommend this book to readers who love expert, detailed world building with extremely likable characters. Sci-fi action/war fans might want to look elsewhere, but those who love a realistic unfolding of events, and an archeological/historical mystery, this is the book for you.
This author doesn’t dwell on death, and sadness. She writes about life, and shows us real characters.
This is a Sci-Fi franchise with impressive world building, strong character focus, and philosophical questions about the cost of technology and mankind's use of it, all of it is made special by the unique world of Artemis. It is a fictional world I will never forget, even though it is not even close to the biggest and most complex world ever written. The writing style of this book has a lot more flavor than the previous. Some of its questions are tackled in a very direct manner, others not so much. I wonder if it ended too early... and I definitely would like to see more of this franchise. Both books end on a very uneasy note, which adds to my craving for more.
