Have you ever read a book that is so different from what you normally read that you aren't sure why you like it? The Extrahumans series is like that for me. I love the story, but from it's description it isn't something I would normally read - so I'm having trouble saying why I like it so much. Though, I just want to say, "Go, read it!" I feel I need to give you more so here goes...
I read the first book Broken (read my review) and was totally consumed. It's taken me awhile to get to the sequel just because I had so many other review books to read. But I was looking for something different to read because I felt like I was in a rut. I knew when I spied the file on my Nook that it was exactly what I needed and it didn't disappoint
The cast of characters is expanded and the focus isn't so much on the characters from Broken. Don't worry you do get to catch up on what they are doing. It is three years after the end of Broken and the Reform Party is in total control. Sky Ranger is on the run with a band of refugees. It is this band of merry men and women who play the leading roles in Fly into Fire.
I perhaps liked Fly into Fire a bit more than Broken. We learn more about the world Susan has created which I love - I think that is definitely a point that is important to me in science fiction and fantasy books. I was happy that I had the third book all ready to go when I finished Fly into Fire. It was great to just continue the story without a break and I will have the review for Spark on Tuesday.
