The Invasion of the Tearling - Erika Johansen

I liked this one better than the first, and I'm being pulled along by the story.




There's just enough wrong here that I don't feel any urgency to advocate for this series. Everyone's a caricature. Odd and frequent use of the f-word. Lots of characters to keep track of. There is a strong rape scene in this one--not that it's wrong to have in the book, but you may want to be aware that it's there before you start.


This continues to be a series that is all about the story, not the characters. Not a deal breaker, more an annoyance.


The 3rd book comes out in a couple of weeks, and I'll be reading it when it does. Who knows, a great finish could change my tune.
