So far, I'm liking this better than the first book in series (Dust).
I think it's because I have some characters to root for, less POV switches to lose them or murkiness about who-is-who/ what-is-what/ less-mucking-about-bits-of-meandering-possibly-unimportant-or-going-nowhere-ship-parts-briefly-introducing-then-abandoning-folk-and-places-and-theories.
It's very easy to put down and get distracted by a new shiny, though. Less a reflection of the book than my mood and how the chapters are written somewhat as convenient stopping points. And still way too much wandering about ship bits.
I'm reading this for a bookclub on booklikes, Virtual Speculation, if anyone cares to join us.
Jacob's Ladder Trilogy in order:
Rachelle Ayala is one addiction I'll gladly own.
What began as a sexy read emerged as an expedition of hope. Mr. Abell gave Nick's bad boy charm a voice. Nick gave a wounded heart a reason to soar. Carol was his motivation to become a better man. Nick was Carol's bright light at the end of a dark road. Ayala wrote the words that stole my heart and Abell supplied the voice that had me catching my breath.
