This book is the perfect complement to Harvester. It is full of unexpected twists and provides a lot of information that I feel will be important in Dawn, the third book of the trilogy. West delivers this information in a plausible and interesting way.
The first third of the book progresses at a fast pace with lots of action. It is also during this segment that Skye realizes some inconvenient truths. There is a lot of shock and awe here.
The second third of the book is the critical information gleaning stage. It includes shocking, heart aching decisions. Also, it is difficult to see just how cruel some people can be. It is also encouraging to see how unconditional love can be.
The final third of the book provides a lot of character development for Skye, and delivers Hope, and makes me cry… a lot. Grab some tissues and this book. It is truly a great read.
