This review should probably have come earlier... except that I got caught up in reading Brandon Sanderson's Words of Radiance.
Eternity’s End by Dan Rix
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
In the gripping sequel to God's Loophole, Dan Rix plunges us into a terrifying time crunch: Gabriel Rockwell has to figure out how to get Raedyn Summers out of the bubble before she runs out of air and water... and before the FBI & U.S. military manage to kill him. Rae was ready to give up - until she inexplicably hears Gabe's voice outside the bubble and discovers that she's not quite ready to lie down and die just yet.
Rix weaves a complex puzzle as Rae circles through the maze of bubbles, trying to maximize the air she has left. (I admit I was too interested in what was going to happen next than to analyse the maze and try to solve the puzzle on my own!) Rae's not the only with a problem to solve - Gabe must learn to control his abilities in order to recreate Rae in the real world. Only, which world and which Rae is the real one now?
There's a cockiness to these two extremely smart teens that, mixed with the vulnerability, stupidity and resilience of youth, makes you start rooting for them and hoping that they'll get through to their happily-ever-after (well, or at least to just stay alive).
Looking forward to the third book, Heaven’s Enigma!
Note: I received a pre-release copy of this book as part of Dan Rix's mailing list.
