Children of Scarabaeus (Scarabaeus, #2) by Sara Creasy

Yet, what Children of Scarabaeus excels in is the sexual tension still very prevalent between our two main leads. But escape – for Edie, for Finn, and for the exploited young – will require the ultimate sacrifice.

Apr 03, Pamela rated it really hcildren it Shelves: Honestly, this series is just that good.

Creasy accomplished with Scarabaeus, deserves a medal. Please review your cart. With Children of Scarabaeus she returns us to her boldly imagined universe for another ingenious blending of rich characterization, breathtaking science fiction adventure, fascinating speculation, and engrossing romance in the vein of Linnea Sinclair and Ann Aguirre. Edie and Finn had an immediate stranglehold on my attention and my emotions were high and riveted for the duration of the book.

These motivations helped ground them as actual humans despite being fictional characters in a novel. Although it chilrden been quite a few years since Creasy has published another novel, I retain hope that she will write another series, just as good – if not better – than this one. Biocyph is a form of programmable living matter, which brought a new level to typical programming concepts. Jan 18, Pygmy rated it liked it Shelves: The hero was quiet and not up himself. If Edie dies, so will Finn, scarabaeuss the chip inside of his head that links them explodes.

After moving to southeastern Australia as a teenager, her love of all things fantastical hooked her on science fiction. Please email webmaster fantasticfiction.


Fifth Grave Past the Light. She is horrified to discover that children of Talasi are being put into servitude like she was. Yet we don’t learn more about Edie and Finn. Finn’s past becomes a little bit clearer in this book, with the arrival of a former flame who is also from his former home planet.

I think the key here was low expectations. With the start of book two, Finn and Edie are recaptured by the Crib. We don’t learn anything about him, and saddest of all, he remains the pawn he was in Song all throughout Children.

It really makes the jungle megabiosis of Scarabaeus come alive in a horrific way. She and Finn talk, and disagree, but neither is a match for the planet. Natessa and Theron are nasty villains, who made me squirm whenever they came on the scene. It never seems contrived, rushed, or flawed in any way, and I suspect that as a trilogy, it might have seemed too forced.

The Heart of Valor. If they get more then two thousands meters apart, he dies, thus insuring that Edie is protected. The seeds were planted six years before and Haller was invaded by the planet the year before and he wants to take over the galaxy! I think the author did a good job at making these things satisfying particularly the endingbut I would have been fine if I had to wait one more book or two for it.

Joint Review – Children of Scarabaeus by Sara Creasy

Feb 08, Canoe rated it really liked it Recommends it for: You can read this item using any of the following Kobo apps and devices: They escape barely and stow away on an unmanned freighter, and put themselves into cryosleep in order to basically drop-off of the face of the galaxy and hopefully cause the Crib to stop looking for them.

Whatever plan she concocts, he agrees. In the first book I could accept that, since I knew there would be another book coming in which Finn’s past could be explored. If Edie dies, so will Finn, as the chip inside of his head tha You may also read my review here: I also liked the way that Scarabaeus changed, especially given the events of the end of the first book.


Although her motives were plausible since her heart was in the right place, they weren’t necessarily realistic since the book didn’t develop the relationships it needed to, which made Edie harder to relate to in Children of Scarabaeus.

The crib is everywhere.

However, although I ultimately liked it, I definitely did not enjoy Children of Scarabaeus svarabaeus much as I enjoyed its predecessor. Meanwhile, in real life, a biology degree led to work as an editor in the educational publishing industry.

For a woman who played such a large role in this novel, I still remained utterly convinced of her evil intentions. Apr 06, Vanessa theJeepDiva rated it really liked it Shelves: Chiildren Edie’s extraordinary cypherteck ability to manipulate the ecology of evolving planets makes her far too valuable for the empire to lose.

The relationship cuildren stronger in this one without being overly romancey for those that pooh pooh that sort of thing and I love how strong Edie is without being a gun-toting, aggressive heroine. Edie returns to Scarabaeus to finish what she started years ago and to save a handful of lives on the side.

Each and every decision taken by Edie and Finn brings them closer to a solution and the clever manner in which everything oof brought around to a full circle is the epitome of satisfying. Thus when I started the second book in the series I was expecting a Sci Fi, without romance. These characters were smart instead.
