Danger descends in the second book of The Internment Chronicles from the New York Times bestselling author of The Chemical Garden trilogyAfter escaping Internment Morgan and her fellow fugitives land on the ground to finally learn about the world beneath their floating island home. 35 starsNobody bores me uite as beautifully as DeStefano She is a very talented writer and her lyrical prose is absolutely mesmerizing Her writing pretty nearly makes up for 300 pages of almost comatose inactivity because it is simply a delight to read her words to see the way she strings sentences together and creates the most beautiful of images almost effortlessly Even after losing the intrigue that made the first book in this series Perfect Ruin a hit with me I was riveted by the way in which DeStefano developed her characters in this one the way she presented this new world and the decisions she made regarding the relationships between the characters Sadly at least for me that still leaves a fairly repetitive and uneventful book that felt like it lasted forever I understand the need to give these characters a chance to develop and become the people they need to be for the next book but uite frankly I was bored with the novel most of the timeThis novel is very different from Perfect Ruin in almost every aspect maybe not in most of its elements but definitely in what they focus on and that made a marked difference in my reading experience In the first novel the mystery and intrigue behind the story the beautiful contradiction between the technological and modern aspects of this monarchic deeply religious island in the sky and the sensitivity and thoughtfulness of the main character made Perfect Ruin an enthralling read that defeated my every protest about the plot Many of the same elements find a place in the seuel but to a much smaller scale There's also a mysterious inconsistent world but it is not explored as much as Internment was and in spite of having a few elements to it that were pretty fascinating those didn't play into the actual plot in the novel uite as much as the elements of Interment did Moreover the world wasn't explored all that much or figured that prominently in the way the story was told Certain elements of it were highlighted and enough details were given to piue my interest but they never built together anything concrete or that satisfied my curiosity There is not much of a mystery behind this world either There's some intrigue but it is not unpredictable or all that hidden in the novel and it has a lot to do with what can potentially happen in the next book Morgan's still a great narrator but her voice wasn't as compelling in this one mostly because there wasn't all that much plot wise for her to contemplate and the way she saw the rest of the characters turned somewhat repetitive What became evident to me about Morgan in this novel is that by herself she's not a very interesting character Actually she's almost a blank slate of a heroine and she is defined almost exclusively by the people around her and what they say and think of her In this novel Morgan had a lot of time to think for herself and by herself and it wasn't nearly as engaging as when she had others around her to buoy her characterization She's a fantastic narrator because DeStefano is a magnificent writer and because she's a lot better at defining others than at defining herself and making her character stand out I know being uiet and slightly unremarkable is part of her characterization but she's too much of an observant when she should be an active participant in her own story I liked how DeStefano played with the characters the new dimensions she gave them how alliances shifted friendships weakene

Burning Kingdoms The Internment Chronicles #2ArkIt is also a land at warEveryone who fled Internment had their own reasons to escape their corrupt haven but now they’re caught under the watchful eye of another king who wants to dominate his world They may have made it to the ground but have they dragged Internment with the. Classic bridge book Lots of walking and talking and almost revelations and then everything wraps up with a cliffhanger Stay tuned for book three What's weird is nothing really happened in the first book either Again wibbling around talking endlessly about maybe doing something and not until the last 50 pages does anything of note happen Plus there's the world's most poorly thought out rebel resistance ever We don't get much info on that front because book two takes place exclusively on the ground And at first I was on board it's like our world in the 20s And also at war And with a monarchy Morgan and friends end up staying with the king's advisor Jack Piper and family at a huge off season hotel I'm not sure what city this was meant to emulateobviously one near water I'd guess New York if not for the fact that there are numerous references to the ocean And also Internment was probably once part of a nearby archipelago over which the king is now at war The islands are the only source of some precious fuel adjacent resource that could power everything anddo you see where this is going As it transpires Princess Celeste is keen to make a deal in the hopes of saving her mother dying of sun sickness aka skin cancer view spoiler And once Pen and Morgan discover that Internment is powered by this magical fuel it's only a matter of time before Celeste spills the beans She's undergone a complete character overhaul by the way In the first book she's written as nuts gleefully so But now she has all of this tragic backstory her mother is dying her brother is gay and her betrothed is an abusive gold digger hide spoiler
