Nd treasures to find in the darkest reaches of space But the rules are also relaxed out on the fringes as they're about to discov. 45 stars The only reason I didn t give it 5 stars because the pacing was a little slow at times especially when the focus was on Adrana and Fura s relationship and all of their secrets It was also hard to believe that Adrana gave in so easily to partnering with Fura since in the beginning she was so adamant that she didn t want anything to do with her sister s obsession I loved their time at the bauble and at Wheel Strizzardy those were two of my favorite parts of the story I m also looking forward to seeing what they encounter in the outer reaches and how the uoins come into play The Line pacing was a little slow at times especially when the focus was on Adrana and Fura s relationship and all of their secrets It was also hard to believe that Adrana gave in so easily to Your Naughty Playmate 3 - Cuckolding Fantasy partnering with Fura since in the beginning she was so adamant that she didn t want anything to do with her sister s obsession I loved their time at the bauble and at Wheel Strizzardy those were two of my favorite Haute Chinese Cuisine from the Kitchen of Wakiya parts of the story I m also looking forward to seeing what they encounter in the outer reaches and how the uoins come into Twisted play

    Ah I’m beginning to see the familiar Al Reynolds yet again He doesn’t linger much in the YA field despite the Ness’ sisters age The story picks up from the end of the first volume Revenger and builds strongly However I’m surprised at myself how did I miss the fact that Revenger series is going to be a trilogy? The good thi

    Well I didn’t like Revenger but hoped I’d like this one better but all I can say is “Alaister Reynolds what’s going on here??” His previous stories are some of my favorites The actions is minor and uninteresting and the dialog is leaden First we hear a conversation between the sisters and then we hear one sister relay the same info to the other shipmates Yawn
