luna: moon rising (Ian McDonald)
Whew! It was certainly a rush down to the wire to finish this trilogy and write me review in time. This review is going to be super short because of a) the time crunch and b) I can’t explain much without massive spoilers. I did think this book was much stronger than the second though still not as strong as the first.
This book jumps right into an action sequence after a smaller time jump, which irked me. The good news is that much of the focus is back on the characters and especially the youngest generation of the Cortas. I was able to quickly be engrossed in how the conflict on the moon was going to turn out. The short answer is not at all like I expected and that was awesome. The politics were all over the place and lots of fun. The ending in particular was lovely. I am definitely team Corta Hélio. I thought that it was a fantastic ending to a series that I am glad to have finally read.
While I have finished the trilogy, apparently the author has written two novellas in the same world. One is a prequel and the other is a companion story. I wouldn’t be adverse to reading more set in this world. I also have to check out the author’s backlog. Arrrr!
Usually I list the Goodreads blurb here but I am not this time cause of major spoilers!
