3/5 stars (liked it)
I didn't like this book quite as much as I did the first one. Although it was nice to get a little closure on Emilio and what life was like in Rakhat after the humans were there. Because of the humans being in Rakhat it made them question their way of life as well as how the Ja'anata treated the Runa. Overall I think this book was about Emilio and how he was coping with what happened to him on Rakhat and how he needed closure.
