Book Review: Terra Formars 2

Review:  #682
Title:  Terra Formars 2
Series:  Terra Formars - 2nd volume
Author:  Yu Sasuga
Read Before:  no
Comments:  The second volume of Terraformars surprisingly takes place 20 years after the first volume.  A third manned mission to Mars is approaching.  As most of the characters died in the first volume, a slew of new characters are introduced.  There are some similarities here and there.  The plot is told in an engaging way and keeps you engrossed.  Unfortunately, the fact that the cockroaches evolved so drastically in only 500 years, and the fact that they seem very intelligent, is still a little bit hard to swallow.  There are a number of flashbacks as it tells the backstories of each character, not the most elegant way but it does the job.  The ending is a cliffhanger and you appreciate the fast pacing the volume offers.
Rating:  7/10
