Book Review – Undying by Amie Kaufman and Meaghan Spooner

3E07FB00-3DEB-403B-9D4E-636E127D2BB4Trapped aboard the Undying’s ancient spaceship and reeling from what they’ve learned there, scavenger Mia and academic Jules are plunged into a desperate race to warn their home planet of the danger humanity’s greed has unleashed. From the mountains of Spain to the streets of Prague, the sequel to Unearthed is a white-knuckle ride that will send readers hurtling back to earth, and leave them breathless until the last page.

The earth’s fate rests in Mia and Jules’s hands in the epic conclusion to New York Times best-selling authors Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner’s tomb-raiding sci-fi duology

A good ending, but it didn’t have the love I felt for Unearthed – possibly without the mysteries, puzzles and space it lost a little something. But it’s still a great series overall.

I loved the fraught-ness of the first bit. The tension of hiding, how they managed to survive, that all was so well done. It’s a little slow but I thought that lent itself to the boredom the characters must have felt.

The parts on Earth definitely didn’t have as much go to them as I felt on Gaia, and the IA were so frustrating, but I felt again that the journey was realistic given the circumstances. I also really liked the addition of Neil.

The undying did sort of turn out like I though, but I really liked how well their storyline was thought out and how it all ended with them. There’s so much more to that, and I think the book shows some of the hope in that.

And I am all about Jules and Mia. I don’t know why but I love them so hard
