Summary
The much-anticipated sequel to The Obsidian Blade transports readers to the terrifying and thrilling world of Lah Lia, the enigmatic girl who changed Tucker Feye's life.More than half a millennium in the future, in the shadow of the looming Cydonian Pyramid, a pampered girl named Lah Lia has been raised for one purpose: to be sacrificed through one of the mysterious diskos that hover over the pyramid's top. But just as she is about to be killed, a strange boy appears from the diskos, providing a cover of chaos that allows her to escape and launching her on a time-spinning journey in which her fate is irreversibly linked to his. In this second volume of the Klaatu Diskos trilogy, Tucker Feye and Lah Lia each hurtle through time, relating their stories in alternating viewpoints that converge at crucial moments. Fans of the first adventure will be intrigued by the chance to see the world through Lah Lia's eyes - no matter how disturbing the vision might be.
Published Reviews
Booklist Review: "And you thought The Obsidian Blade (2012) was weird? Then gird your loins for Hautman's increasingly difficult to follow but and here's the trick nevertheless fascinating sequel. Tucker Feye, our initial guide through the time-tripping diskos, this time recedes to the background to make room for Lah Lia, brought up in the future world of Romelas as a pampered Pure Girl whose womanhood is celebrated by sacrificing her to the disko atop the city's holy pyramid. Got it so far? Good, because then it goes off the rails. Lia is shuttled back and forth through time and circumstance, from the relatively simple (working on a farm and learning to protect herself from a leering drunkard) to the mind-bogglingly complex (a future war alongside those emerging from what was known as the Digital Plague ). Hautman does newbies no favors by refusing to provide much establishing information. But he understands it, and it's hard not to be both disoriented and intrigued as he leads you through the frequently murky but occasionally spectacular developments. Stay tuned for the (even weirder?) finale, folks. HIGH-DEMAND BACKSTORY: Hautman doesn't know how to write a bad book. His name recognition should continue to make this unorthodox sf series a high-visibility one.--Kraus, Daniel Copyright 2010 Booklist"
