What is it about? (Summary from GoodReads)
Trapped aboard the Undying’s ancient
spaceship and reeling from what they’ve learned there, scavenger Mia and
academic Jules are plunged into a desperate race to warn their home planet of
the danger humanity’s greed has unleashed. From the mountains of Spain to the
streets of Prague, the sequel to Unearthed is a white-knuckle ride that will
send readers hurtling back to earth, and leave them breathless until the last
The earth’s fate rests in Mia and Jules’s hands in the epic conclusion to New York Times best-selling authors Amie Kaufman and Meagan Spooner’s tomb-raiding sci-fi duology.
See me starting and finishing series in the same month! Go me!
After finishing Unearthed I really wanted to continue to series soon! But I have to say I liked this one a bit less.
The main thing I loved in the first book was the exploration of the new planet, which was very exciting and interesting. But in this book we were back on earth, there was no exploration, and the action was less exciting.
Just as in the first book there was a lot of action. But the action was just less interesting (?) compared to book one. I feel like it was way more predictable, and it just pulled me in way less than in book one.
Then also the characters still didn’t really develop throughout the book, but I still did enjoy them! There were also some new characters introduced, who were interesting.
There was this ‘plot twist’ at the end of the book, but if you asked me you could see it from the beginning of the book.
I know I now sound pretty negative, but I still did really enjoy this book. And I did wanting to continue to listen to the audiobook every time I had to put it down.
I think the main ‘problem’ was that I was very pleasantly surprised by book one, and I just was not by this one, since I already knew what to expect!
Quite a short, and all over the place review.. I do really recommend this series, especially on audio. If you ever need a easy, enjoyable book to red, this could definitely be an option!
