Okay, wow, this book had me discussing and screaming at it a lot. People die. People nearly die. Some of those deaths I was not at all okay with.

Bull and Sam. And nearly Naomi. I swear I'd have stopped reading the book and the series if Naomi had died.

Discovering the background of the protomolecule, the history, the vast other worlds out there, and the threat was awesome. Seeing both personal and political interactions in the crisis in a closed-off environment, too. God this series is brilliant. ( )

3.5/5 stars

I didn't like this book as much as I liked the first two books. I enjoyed the story and plot and how it was told. This world is super cool - I liked how we get more existential with the Ring, and religion was tied into the plot. I just didn't like some of the POVs. Melba kinda sucked, and I just didn't really like her POV. Her story just didn't intrigue me. I also was not the biggest fan of Bull's POV either...he was an integral part of the story, but I just didn't like his voice. I didn't connect with him. I missed Avasrala.

I enjoyed the conversation of religion in this novel. Anna's POV was great, and I enjoyed how the authors integrated this. They don't create religion as an entity, or vilify it. They create a safe space for both religious and non religious people within the novel. It was really well done in my opinion.
The Miller plot line continues to be weird, but definitely important and well done as well.

Overall, the plot was great and I like how the bigger picture is progressing. I just didn't like some of the POVs. ( )

Took me forever to get through the last act because it really dragged on. Definitely the weakest in the series thus far. ( )

This series continues to evolve and get better with each entry. Great action scenes throughout the book and several new characters introduced. I do hope the next book in the series brings back Bobbie and Avasarala but this was was certainly one of the best of 2016 so far.

5 Stars for a truly entertaining read. ( )
