First off, I loved this book. It got right into some action and I was pulled along immediately. The first book in the series, Dead and Buryd, sets the tone more and is slower in places because of it, but the author gives us some of that all important action in the last portion of that book. There was a character in Dead and Buryd that I wanted to see more of and that was Edtroka, the Adveni guard. When I picked up Fight or Flight I was not disappointed. Edtroka is one of those rare characters that is so well written, you're turning the page quicker to find the scenes with him in it. For me, his interaction with Georgianna is what held my interest. But I wanted more! I guess I'll have to wait for the next book to read on.
What I least liked were the Belsa/Veniche scenes. There was nothing wrong with them except that there were so many characters with face time, I found it hard to keep track of who everybody was. The scenes with the Adveni were much more personal and tightly written.
Overall, this is turning into a really interesting series.
The quicker rush of events made me much more invested in the story, and I'm definitely onboard for book 3. There were a few moments when I struggled to remember who minor characters were and how they related to the heroine, but I don't think it harmed my enjoyment.
It’s a dog-eat-dog world inside Lindbury, and Gianna quickly learns that the prison hierarchy is as brutal and oppressive as that of the Adveni over the Veniche. Forced to do whatever it takes to stay alive and unharmed, Gianna’s shame, regret, and despair is palpable as she forges uneasy alliances with Lindbury’s most undesirable inmates for her own protection.
Sold as a Drysta - a slave - Gianna unwillingly swaps one prison for another, becoming an Adveni’s possession to be toyed with however her owner sees fit. Though her situation seems bleak at first, Gianna’s departure from Lindbury sees the beginnings of a tentative (if a little volatile) friendship, and puts her back in the awkward position of being in contact with both the Adveni and the Veniche - something the Belsa rebels are quick to take advantage of.
Suspicions of a double agent in the Belsa camp run rampant with potentially devastating consequences, but they’re not the only ones who ought to be checking through their ranks with a fine toothed comb…
One character that I really wanted to see more of in Fight or Flight was Edtroka, because he’s somewhat of an enigma, and his demeanour (as cold as it may be) hints that there might be more to him than the indifferent prison guard persona he projects. For now, let’s just say I wasn’t disappointed.
In the second installment of the Out of Orbit series, the stakes are raised even higher, trust becomes a commodity and loyalties are tested up to, and beyond their limits. Once again, Cooke has captured the human - or alien in this case - spirit perfectly, riding a fine line between cowardice and confidence in order to do what is right. There were times when I wanted to shake Gianna and tell her to pull her bloody socks up, and others where I just wanted to give her a hug and tell her it was okay to be afraid as I experienced her trials right beside her.
My only complaint is that book three won’t be out until next year!
