Read full description of the books Nu Havoc (Nu Haven, #2):(I received a free copy of this book in exchange for a review).
(This review may contain spoilers).
So, having read and liked the first book in the series, I was fairly happy to read this one when the author offered me a copy. Although it's been a while since I've read the first book, I quickly got back into the world.
Although this book did have my hated dual first-person characters, I didn't find it as irritating as I do with most books that switch first person POV characters. Adah and Will did both have their own voices most of the time and I liked them both as characters. Although I didn't really like all of the romantic tension, it was mostly bearable and I probably hate it so much because of how truly cliched love triangles (or squares) have become.
I did find both of the main characters to be really well-rounded and I felt that they both came across as real, human people, rather than just characters. I liked the fact that they weren't ridiculously over-powered, particularly in the case of Adah. And that they made mistakes and were affected by various things.
I would have liked to see more of the other GEOs' abilities. I felt they could have been explored much easier. Also, after a while, the others kind of kept merging together. They weren't given as much of a 'voice' as some of the others.
It was nice to see some of the characters from book one, as well as to meet new ones. I thought it was good that the author didn't shy away from violence, or from killing off characters when it was appropriate.
I appreciated the fact that some attempt was made to humanise Harrison by the end of the book, but he still didn't reach the interesting villain part, even though his exchange with Will was pretty interesting. I was disappointed by one of the things that was revealed with a particular character, though.
This book was clearly left open-ended for a follow-on and I think I'd definitely like to read book three at some point in the future. There are some similarities with other young adult dystopian fiction, but I honestly feel that this one can stand on its own.
