The Rosie Black Chronicles: Equinox
Five hundred years into the future, the world is a different place. The Melt has sunk most of the coastal cities and Newperth is divided into the haves, the 'Centrals'; the have-nots, the 'Bankers'; and the fringe dwellers, the 'Ferals'.
Rosie thought exposing the evil Helios corporation would be the end of all her problems. But it was just the beginning.
Bent on revenge, Rosie is still working in sceret to try to take down Helios. but her dad is locked away, Pip has abandoned her, and Riley isn't telling her the full story. Where can she turn for help? And how many more sacrifices is she prepared to make to destroy Helios?
This is one of those the-sequel-is-never-as-good-as-the-first-one kind of situations. Equinox wasn't bad, per se, but it didn't draw me in as Genesis did. Also, with the introduction of the stunner that is Dalton, you get a fairly predictable setup for a love-triangle. I'll give Morgan credit for not overdoing it, but its very existence annoys me -_-' And yeah, the characters got a little more angstier, which was a tad irritating.
That being said, that's all my negatives, I think. I still love the way Morgan writes, she has a simple way of saying things that just gives you a perfectly clear image in your head. It's all action and non-stop crazy, which is totally my kind of thing. The pace was easy to follow, no boring bits, and perfectly compelling and dangerous. A decent ending too - not really cliff-hanger-y, but teetering on the edge anyhow.
So worth the read :)
Awesome book but quite confusing but very good once you get into it
This is a great successor to the explosive Genesis, the first in the Rosie Black Chronicles by Western Australian author Lana Morgan.
Rosie Black, having narrowly dodged death on Mars, is still up against the Helios corporation, who are determined to get hold of Pip, her friend, who has the cure to the deadly MalX illness in his blood. Meanwhile, Riley, determined to safeguard the information he holds, has inserted a cortex implant which dripfeeds her the knowledge he thinks she needs - but at a potentially devastating cost.
This book cleverly dodges the 'second book slump' - I was hooked from page one. Note that the author doesn't do a lot to bring the reader up to speed, so you do need to read Genesis first.
