I refuse to rate this one until I read #3. Update, 07-10-13:
Book three, done. It is getting better, but I still need more development on the alien theme, some history, perhaps.
If the author lives up to the suspense, lessens the frustration that IS Katy
, and portrays the Luxen, who are on the good side, with more backbone, then I can forgive the maze in which she let the characters blindly walk around in Onyx. At least give the readers some dramatic irony to pacify them!
