Exceeded Expectations

This was a magical book! I expected it to be more sci-fi but it also kept wavering back & forth- is it sci-fi or isn’t it? I loved Ursa, smart little star child! Some reviews said she was whiny, but what 9 year olds aren’t from time to time? I liked Jo’s strong independent personality, Tabby’s quirky confidence, & Gabe’s hard working & dedicated caregiving.
The storyline was well written and I enjoyed the description of nature & birds, and for the most part, it was unpredictable. The parts that were, I was ok with because the synopsis kind of gives some away.
I didn’t find the “ursa said”, “Jo said”, “Gabe said” bothered me at all (as it did other reviewers).
Overall would absolutely recommend!

I really enjoyed the first book “Dark Pines” however I felt that this follow up book did not keep my attention as well as the first. It was also quite predictable. The narration is great.
