My rating: 3 of 5 stars
I'll preface this by saying I did not enjoy the first book. I listened to it on audiobook and it took a couple months to get through it. I decided the narrator was the problem and that I would read the second book instead.
This book came across much better. Though in the beginning, I had the same issue of not being able to dive into it. It just didn't grab my attention. Fortunately, about a third of the way in, I started reading it at a regular pace and enjoyed the book for the most part.
The story is okay. To me the biggest part of the story happens about halfway through and then it became a book of survival on assorted planets/moons/I'm not sure what.
So, I liked it at least. That's saying something compared to the last one. But I'll admit, there are just too many characters to follow, too many perspectives to focus on, and thus, too much going on all the time that it makes it difficult to know what's the plot. For the love, I thought one of the "bad guy" characters was a "good guy" until about 30% in. That might be my fault or just the lack of attention I could give to reading it because the story is so convoluted in the beginning.
I'll read the third one (mind you this one ends on a semi-cliffhanger that seems quite predictable as to where the story goes next) but I'm not holding my breath in anticipation for it.
