R.E. Palmer’s Cloud Cuckoo

I was so impressed with the first book in the Never Dawn series (given to me by the author) that I purchased the second one on my own. The first one had ended with such a strong shocking discovery that I wanted to continue the overall story.

Unfortunately, Cloud Cuckoo didn’t measure up. The majority of the book Noah couldn’t remember what he had discovered, he and Rebecca were separated, and he was isolated during a “re-education” time in which they tried to brainwash him into compliance. There were some more secrets revealed, but this second book very much felt like it was a second book—just a bridge to get from the first to the third. This is my problem with most planned trilogies. There wasn’t anything spectacular about this one, although it does end on a pretty big cliffhanger. The third one is out now and I’m sure I will read it because I like to see how things end.
