We're talking about it today, GURRLLLL! I can't do the voice as well as my cousin can. I should've got her to voice it for me.
Anyway, because of the soap-operatic theme of the book, I decided to go with a soap opera voice. It seemed like there was more romantic suspense than actual sci-fi this time around, though the focus on alien cultures worked out pretty well. But oh, the drama...so much drama. Some of that was inevitable due to the events of the first novel. I mean, these minor subplots have to go somewhere.
There is a concluding novel called Beyond Human, which I will probably pick up as well. Hopefully it won't take me more than 2 years to get around to it. Honestly, I did not plan it that way! I try to space out my sequel coverage to give more time to newer works, but I feel that I spaced this one out a bit too far. So I promise to keep the reviews under a year.
Of course, y'all could kindly remind me in the comments of the video as well. I'll certainly remember to do it then.
