3 Bells – if tomorrow comes (Nancy Kress) Book 2

Ahoy me mateys!  Grab your grog!  Yesterday I reviewed the first book of the series.  Here be book 2 of the sixth installment of the 3 Bells trilogy showcase.

if tomorrow comes (Nancy Kress)

I loved book two more than the first book!  In this version ye get to read about the alien’s home planet, World, and what happens when a diplomatic mission from Earth arrives there.  The most I can give ye without spoilers  . . . craziness!

I absolutely loved readin’ about World’s culture and how the humans from Earth are completely wrong about what it would be like.  One of the best things is that assumptions that ye make after readin’ book one are turned upside down!  I actually adore the alien planet.  I have to admit that I would like to visit World and experience it meself.

The focus on this book is culture clash and culture change.  It is told through several different perspectives this time.  I adored a new character named Leo and the rest of his gang.  I couldn’t stand a character named Austin who I think was let off too lightly.  We also get to follow Marianne from the last book too.  The mix was excellent.  There is also a lot of science in this one too but once again the book is mostly character driven.

I have to say that I found the readin’ experience to be so engaging that I stay up into the wee hours of the morn to find out how it ended.  I need to know what happens in book three immediately!  Good thing I already have it.  Onward to the final book.  Stay on the lookout tomorrow!  Arrrr!

Don’t just take me word for readin’ book 1 (though it should be enough!).  Also check out what me crew had to say about this one:

Millie @ milliebotreads – Much thanks to her for introducing me to this series!  “Whereas the first book focused a lot on environmental science and political tension, this book centers more around medical science and social tension. There are some similar themes that certainly link the two books together, but nothing felt stale or repeated. If you haven’t yet started this series and any of this sounds interesting to you, I strongly suggest you pick it up!.”

Normally I would post the blurb here . . . but not this time because of spoilers!
