Oh wow! I was pleasantly surprised by landlocked. It’s nice to know that Jessica Gunn actually takes notes of reviews. In my review of book one Gyre, I did not like Trevor all that much, I felt he was a wuss, but boy oh boy, have Chelsea and Trevor grown. Not only has the characters grown, the author has too. I quite frankly expected this book to not be as good as it was, but Jessica Gunn has done a five star job on this one.
I loved this book. In my review of Gyre, I had said that the book was predictable, but I can’t say that for this book. It was hardly predictable, and that just showed me growth, and showed me as a reader that the author was willing to grow. I sincerely cannot wait for book three. How’s anything gonna go? I don’t know? Things are up in the air all around.
So, in this book, it’s been two years since SeaSat 5 was taken? Everything we thought we knew was a lie. Who are the players in this war? Do we really know? Personally, I can’t wait to find out. I’m really pleased with this book because it actually developed the story and didn’t just go round in a loop like some YA books do.
The characters are grown up (well just 2 years), but they’re different. Like I said, I did not like Trevor that much, but really, it was that I didn’t respect him. But his character has grown so much, and I definitely like and respect him now. Good job to Jessica Gunn! I loved Gyre, but I didn’t like Trevor, and now she has made me like and respect him. Chelsea, Chelsea, still love her. She’s definitely still in my female vanguard collection, but boy oh boy are things up in the air. And weird. Uhm. We’ll see in Book 3.
I would definitely recommend Landlocked to everyone, and if you haven’t read Gyre, do so first!
