I just couldn’t wait and picked up this sequel right after finishing Skyward! I was slightly hesitant going into the second novel, because I had heard some mixed reviews about it. And while it was not quite what I was expecting, it was still a great installment into the series. 4 stars!
“I smiled, then realized I was talking to a weird cave slug, which was a new low even for me.”
