Refuge aboard a ship where gender is fluid where the dynamic is uneasy and where rumors flow of a bold new reproductive strategyWhen the promise of a miraculous hope for humanity’s future tears Flora’s makeshift family asunder she must choose protect the safe haven she’s built or risk everything to defy oppression whatever its provenance 25 starsMeg Elison s sci fi dystopian trilogy began with The Book of the Unnamed Midwife A fever has spread killing the majority of woman and children and making childbirth deadly In the aftermath the world is a dangerous place to be a woman Men roam in packs searching for surviving females a valuable commodity in post apocalyptic America An unnamed woman travels from California dressing as a man and using different names she describes her journey in a notebook She s searching for a safe community where she can teach others what she knows about medicine preventing pregnancy and assisting in birth Her greatest hope is that both a woman and infant will survive childbirthIn The Book of Etta Etta is raised in the town of Nowhere Women are still in danger of becoming slaves or dying in childbirth In Nowhere mothers and midwives are sacred and so is the book of the unnamed midwife Etta dresses as a man and goes by the name Eddy to scavenge surrounding areas for useful objects from the past while dodging slave traders When Nowhere and the people she loves become the focus of a dangerous and powerful man Etta risks everything to create an epic uprising and maintain her freedomThe Book of Flora picks up where book two left off The surviving residents of Nowhere have found shelter in the underground Mormon city called Ommun The people from Nowhere clash with the leader of Ommun on almost everything and the main characters Eddy Alice and Flora set out in search of a new home The journey is told by Flora a trans woman we met in book two who fell in love with Eddy She explains her past from her childhood to how she ended up in Esteil in book twoOn their journey to find a new home Flora finds Connie a child who doesn t identify as either gender Connie eventually leaves when their beliefs clash and Flora grieves the loss at the same time Alice becomes a mother to a living child The Book of Flora was all over the place for me While it s a continuation of the first two books and it s necessary to read those in order to truly understand what s happening in book three this felt very different It remains focused on gender identity and euality but an evolution theory that is hinted at throughout and is confirmed at the end of the book left me scratching my head It felt as if it was introduced as an afterthought and solely to create tension between two characters leading up to what could be a dramatic ending that honestly fell completely flat and unresolved The character Connie wasn t fully developed so their beliefs and motivations made no sense to me Their return at the end of the book which had been building suspense was rushed and lacklusterBook one The Book of the Unnamed Midwife could be read as a standalone in my opinion it was the strongest book in the trilogy and definitely worth reading for fans of sci fidystopia The Book of Etta was a decent continuation of the world we were originally introduced to with brand new characters The Book of Flora fell apart for me I was looking forward to following the characters we met in book two but it felt as if the author was trying to build a dramatic conclusion that was a letdown for me personally because it was unfocused We followed Flora s life and feelings and were only briefly introduced to her child Connie Connie s return at the end because of a discovery they made just wasn t compelling If it was supposed to be shocking or dramatic Connie should ve been central to the plot rather than a footnoteThanks to 47North and NetGalley for providing me with an ARC in exchange for my honest review The Book of Flora is scheduled for release

    The reason it gets only four stars is that there is not a lot of plot in this book and past storylines are ignored or not given a satisfactory conclusion With that said I still thoroughly enjoyed this third book in a trilogy that has been one of my favorite little gems seriously people should at the very least give the first book in this ser
