While I've enjoyed this book
on 8 February 2016
While I've enjoyed this book, it's not as good or as original as the first one. It feels like endless fights where Devi comes out on top each time, even though it's less and less likely. But my main problem is that at some point between writing her first book and this one, the author has clearly read Ryk Brown's series. How do I know that? The references to Hyperspace in the first book are all her own. In the second, she keeps referring to the "white light" of the "jump drive" or "the light of the jump drive washed over the ship". The descriptions are completely different to the first book and it is so jarring and so disturbing it is putting me off.
Similarly, it doesn't feel like she can get to an interesting and exciting conclusion so I am not sure I'm going to bother reading the third book. I'm certainly not paying £6 for it.
