“Starblind” continues with book 2 in a different manner than expected. I know that things settled down a little after book 1, but I was not expecting to have the story of another crew member. “Parallax” has Tamzea in the center of attention. Her story begins once she is reunited with her long lost love. A lot of unexpected things happen. This book has more twists than the first one, which made me like it more.

Since we are already familiar with the world building, the author is now more focused on character development. We see different angles of the main characters from the previous book and more interactions between them. I loved the love story between Tamzea and Eron and I think it had more depths and a lot more complications. It was true that the series gets better and better J

The writing is as exceptional as in “Starblind” and I believe the author did a lot more exploration in that area. She plied more with the worlds, with descriptions and places. I loved it !

I am keeping my opinion in regards to the narration. As I mentioned in my review for book 1, I think Ashley Holt overdid it in her intonation and used a very slow reading pace. I could adjust the reading speed on my app, but the voice inflexions were still there.

With all my comments and adding he plot development and narration, I have to keep my 4 star rating. I loved it, can’t wait for the next one. I wonder who’s story will we get this time. I haven’t checked yet J

I received this audiobook as part of my participation in a blog tour with Audiobookworm Promotions. This tour is being sponsored by Spectrum Audiobooks. The gifting of this audiobook did not affect my opinion of it.
