Aw yeah!

I enjoyed the first book, When We Wake, a lot, but it didn't really seem to have enough consequences in it. The heavy-handed merciless government of future Australia is going to ship refugee slaves into space, and Tegan escapes from them on a bicycle? How likely is that?

… not that likely. Which is why, in the early parts of When We Wake, she's paying the price. And worse, Abdi is paying an even higher one. It's hard reading but also, getting towards the stakes that would be at issue.

And I'm loving Abdi as the narrator this time, especially his sharply divergent reaction to Bethari from Tegan's, and, to a lesser extent, to Joph too. (But not as divergent. Because who wouldn't love Joph?)
