I found the planet Scarabaeus fascinating. Children should have engaged the audience with new questions and experiences. However it just didn’t deliver for me.

It was really well done. In this novel, it goes up to astronomical levels. It seems as if Edie and Finn can never catch a breath or even chjldren spare moment of time together, for both are rare and far-between. Finn and Edie have come a long way since they first met and even more, their relationship has solidified into one of ultimate faith.

The two books were obviously and pleasantly planned together. In fact I think because of her lush descriptive writing and multi-layered characters I will have put her firmly in my autobuy list.

The way things are satisfyingly tied up leads me to believe that this series is now complete, which is in a way disappointing. It was very slow getting into it, it took me days to read the first pages, and I actually nodded off a couple times reading it.

Children of Scarabaeus — All About Romance

Only UF and SF genres allow a “couple” to entertain the notion of separation so frequently or engage such gray characters, both strengths of Childrenbut while Children does raise some thought-provoking ethical dilemmas with ease, a sequel cannot simply stretch material from the original. Nov 07, Nicole rated it really liked it Shelves: He grumbles about after Edie, grudgingly going along with her plans because, what else can he do?


Yet, as a finale, Children of Scarabaeus succeeds in tying up all loose ends successfully. There was a lot of action and excitement here, and even if I couldn’t always picture what was going on I’m not very science-mindedI still enjoyed every bit of the story.

Because I wanted to learn who they really were, and I wanted to watch them interact when they weren’t forced to play nice because their survival depended on each other. I liked how Scarabaeus was worked back into the story, it was a very interesting twist that Vhildren never expected.

It was very refreshing in a world of sci fi romance where it I enjoyed these two books for two reasons – first of all, the science fiction was actually interesting. For all the shit that these two have been through together, for all the drama and life-threatening situations that have forged a bond between them, is it asking too much to see a bit of soul?

I am pleased that I did not skip over this series after Amazon recommended the first book. On top of that, most of her martyrly angst just seemed unnecessary, overdone, and over-the-top.
