The Sequel To The Psalms Of Herod, This Book Concludes The Harrowing Journey Of Becca Of Wiserways Stead Escaping Her Oppressive, Rural Stead, Becca Journeys Toward The Magical City Where Her Brother Lives, Certain That His Knowledge Will Save Her And Her Kin But After Finally Arriving There, She Is Overwhelmed By The Strange Ways Of The Coop Citizens She Soon Learns That Everyone, Including Her Brother, Has Ulterior Motives I got this book because I like Esther M Friesner and I enjoyed The Psalms of Herod I like a nice sociological science fiction post apocalyptic novel I didn t enjoy this one as much.I didn t quite understand the workings of the city I m not sure what information I missed but I just didn t get it The full circle was nice but still strangely unsatisfying.I think this one will end up leaving my library It s no The Handmaid s Tale Sequel to The Psalms of Herod, but didn t capture my imagination quite like the first book did Still a good read if you like book about a dystopian society. This series is one of my favorite stories It s gruesome, tragic, and yet hopeful I d really like to see the next book come out to continue or at least finish the story.
