Summary

After two years and seven months biding her time on Anima, her home ark, it is finally time to act, to put what she has discovered in the Book of Faruk to use. Under an assumed identity, Ophelia travels to Babel, a cosmopolitan and thoroughly modern ark that is the jewel of the universe. Will her talent as a reader suffice to avoid being lured into a deadly trap by her ever more fearful adversaries? Will she ever see Thorn, her betrothed, again?

Weak link in the series

The first two books in this series are wonderful: a unique premise, fast-paced, many and diverse characters, multiple story lines, humor, affection, and unexpected turns. This third volume does not live up to its predecessors. There are almost no characters other than Ophelia. The story is slow and not particularly engaging. It's missing color and and verve, humor, and true affection between characters. Ophelia does find Thorn, but they are unable to connect emotionally. I still believe Thorn is either autistic or has Asperger's Syndrome. The search for God is necessary to the story arc but has become boring. Will I buy the next volume? Yes, based on the merits of the first two books. Will I buy a fifth volume? We'll see. It's time to wrap up this series.
