Children of Scarabaeus
The further Edie delves into the details of the project, the more she realizes just how badly the project is foundering. When they returned to the planet, the descriptions of chileren lifeforms and wildlife felt so vivid and epic and alienesque. I only had one disappointment.
Sarah Creasy devised an excellent science fiction universe, populated with interesting characters and imaginative concepts. Edie herself notes this, especially when Finn kf up more to Galen, one of the children. In the case of Finn, I’d say there was a regression.
The world is vast but consistent, the characters familiar and compelling. But nope–Finn just seemed like a cyborg throughout the book. Leave A Comment Cancel reply Comment.
Children of Scarabaeus Author s: Yet we don’t learn more about Edie and Finn. There are other children, talented like Edie, being manipulated to do their duty to Crib Colonial Unit.
I really hope that she writes more about Finn and Edie, I would like to see where else their travels could take them and scarabaeeus other kind of trouble could they get in and out of. Edie Sha’nim believes she and her bodyguard lover, Finn, could find refuge from the tyranny of the Crib empire by fleeing to the Fringe worlds. I’m a big fan of stoic, but this isn’t stoic, it’s robotic.
She was willing to make huge sacrifices for scarabxeus, but why? And this is from a girl who balks at long series, so do not take my words lightly. Sara Creasy grew up in a tumbling-down Victorian house in England, where she tapped out her first stories on a tiny blue typewriter.
Finn’s past becomes a little bit clearer in this book, with the arrival of a former flame who is also from his former home planet. Feb 14, rameau rated it really liked it Shelves: Edie wants Finn by her side, but she also wants him scarabaeuus be chilrden, and not have to be by her side, especially when her skills make her a resource everyone wants.
I am a huge fan of the Grimspace and the Alien series by Gini Koch. At the conclusion of the overall story I was fairly satisfied. Don’t get me wrong; I like being surprised by sudden plot twists, but these weren’t really twists.
Children of Scarabaeus — All About Romance
And it’s not even that I’m a huge romance novel fan, cause I’m not. The characters were really strong in this one, almost more so than the scarabaes. The pace was great and I never got lost or felt that the story stalled in any way. I really really enjoyed it and I thought childrn Sara Creasy combined the elements of science fiction and romance really well. Theron has some serious questions for Edie, as well as trying to force her into complying with his desires by threatening to court martial her and killing off Finn.
Yes No Thanks for your feedback! I could have used a book or two between book 1 and the conclusion here, and I think that would have also sidestepped the feeling that the plot twists and deaths in the story were a means to get to the appropriate ending within the pages allowed.
They took a small detour to two different planets instead. But this one really cbildren how much they have grown closer to each other compared to the unwilling allies when they first met. Both lifelong pawns, they must escape and find a purpose together.
I can definitely recommend this book for readers looking for something out of the ordinary.
