    I m afraid that I won t be able to review this book as seriously as I originally intended I wanted to read it as an adventure and a novel of chase, because that s how it felt, but I got sidetracked by alienish and outright aliens being bred in the bowels of the generation ship I wanted to get waylaid by Tristan, the toolbox, the necromancer, and the fragment of our big bad ang...

    I think the first book in the series, Dust , was a stronger book It may have been too long since I read that one until I read this one I had a hard time remembering all the characters and family history The first book hadof a sense of wonder with the movement through the ship The main characters from the first book are mostly not seen, and I had a hard time transferring my interest to the new characters This book is basically one big long chase scene, interspersed with lots of charac I think the first book in the series, Dust , was a stronger book It may have been too long since I read that one until I read this one I had a hard time remembering all the characters and family history The first book hadof a sense of wonder with the movement through the ship The main characters from the first book are mostly not seen, and I had a hard time transferring my interest to the new characters This book is basically one big long chase scene, inte...

    Had absolutely no idea what was going on, in the first book Too many names, too many new ideas, too much description that made it difficult to tell what was metaphor and what was actually happening I picked up the second book mostly just hoping to figure out what happened in the first one Ooh, I get it now I will probably go re read Dust, now that I have a better idea Because, for all my complaining, Bear s prose is SO GORGEOUS that I can t not read her books, even when I am completely lost Had absolutely no idea what was going on, in the first book Too many names, too many new ideas, too much description that ...

    The planetship is underway, but fragile as its new angel and captain integrate, their integrity is threatened by a potential outside force I miss the duo protagonists of Dust Characterization in Chill is strong, but the narrative voice, with its distinctive quirks especially in depicting microexpressions , remains static as it cycles through the half dozen points of view the effect is fluid almost to the point of sloppy, and, with a plot so similar to the first book, bizarrely redundant Bu The planetship is underway, but fragile as its new angel and captain integrate, their integrity is threatened by a potential outside force I miss the duo protagonists of Dust Characterization in Chill is strong, but the narrative voice, with its distinctive quirks especially in depicting microexpressions , remains static as it cycles through the half d...
