Gr 7 Up—After starting off with a bang, this series continues with a nice round of fireworks. Continuing exactly where Nyxia left off, there is no time to regroup as the action stays on track. The Genesis survivors must immediately make their way to a safe zone where they are greeted by the Adamites, the indigenous species of the planet. Emmett and the others soon realize that things are not at all what they were told, promises will clearly be broken, and dual agendas make their mission one of continued life-and-death struggle. Friendships and alliances created on the training ships are tested as some members fracture off, intent on harming others within the group. A dangerous but beautiful environment shows Emmett, Morning, and the others what they are made of, whom they can trust, and pushes them to their limits physically, emotionally, and mentally. This is an amazing continuation of a solid first installment. New characters are introduced and serve a strong purpose in propelling the story forward. There is nonstop action with new discoveries on every page. Familiarity with the previous book is imperative in order to feel the action's full effect, and to have enough background knowledge to appreciate the game of cat and mouse that is played within.
VERDICT Purchase this extremely well-written series title.
