Firefly crossed with I Robot and a touch of romance
Mar 18, 2013
Evoking Firefly crossed with I Robot, Laura Eno invites readers back into the lives of Raven’s fine cast of characters in this second book of the Carienna Oracles. Mikael is still tortured by regrets after losing his friend in their first search for the Oracles. Now he longs to find out what really happened. Meanwhile Raven has fallen in love, something she thought would never happen. But events spin out of control and leave her losing her fragile sense of self-worth. “You have love and hope and good friends willing to help,” her android friend, Ben, assures her. And indeed, Ben might be the most interesting, and most endangered character of them all. Another pleasingly quick read in the series, Wraith takes the characters to an almost invisible moon, beautifully imagined and convincingly described. Betrayals ensue, loyalties are tested, and an evil tycoon manipulates everyone who ventures into his grasp. But Raven does indeed have love and hope and good friends, who eventually prevail. I certainly hope there’ll be more to these tales from Laura Eno.
