The sequelish book to Baciagalupi’s Printz-winning Ship Breaker (link takes you to my review). I liked the way the world has developed, and the complexity of the moral decisions. Also, when I realized exactly what the Drowned Cities is, it was kind of gut-punchy. Still, I didn’t get the extreme emotional reaction I did from reading Ship Breaker. Not sure if that’s a function of having some idea what I’m getting into, or if it was just less personally affecting.
