Last week, I reviewed the first book in the Extinction Trials trilogy by S.M. Willson. I thought that this book was great, and want to share my thoughts on it.
Betrayal. Sacrifice. Survival. Welcome to The Extinction Trials.
After surviving on Piloria once, Storm and Lincoln are the obvious candidates to return to the dinosaur continent to test the new virus that should clear the way for human settlement. But they have their own priorities – finding a cure for the plague that’s sweeping Earthasia, and keeping themselves alive.
Like the first book this one had a full a vivid plot. I felt that the characters (whom I adore) are making good decisions and are easy to empathise with. I enjoyed the duel perspective of this book as unlike other books with two points of view the chapters did not necessarily alternate from one character to the other.
Unlike other trilogies that have a second book that feels artificially created, this book has a plot that feels real and a logical step for both the characters and the world that they are set in. I really enjoyed this. I also enjoyed the development of the long-lost parent plot as it was told from an outsider’s point of view for most of the time. It allowed for a more encompassing view of the situation than other books provide. I am looking forward to reading the next book, rebel. Review out next week.
