MY REVIEW -
This was better than the first book for me, and I really enjoyed the first book, but I loved this one! It was just as unique as the first book, and I loved that the setting was among aliens, and the aliens homeland. The author did an excellent job of creating a really interesting alien world, and created a very vivid picture in my mind as I read. I liked that this book's main voice was Silver's; it's good to have more of her perspective on things, and I liked her involvement with Mez. I love all the side characters; they were interesting and had levels to his/her personalities. I still don't like the age of the main characters, but I just pushed that out of my head, so I really wouldn't have to think about it, and it helped increase my like for the story. I like that the main characters are still feisty and intelligent. I also didn't like the time jumps; sometimes it was months, and sometimes it was years, and I feel it would have been just better for the author to have the main characters be an appropriate age for things to occur, then to have the time jumps. I also don't like the view of the main characters on intimate relations; that it's just a bodily need, and that it wouldn't matter if someone you were in a relationship with was with someone else, I just thought that was odd; especially with how the character acts after. I feel like this is stepping into iffy territory. I still really enjoyed this book, and I'm looking forward to the next book!
