Emilie & the Sky World (Emilie Adventures #2) by Martha Wells
So Emilie is back in another adventure.
Her previous journeys brought her into the center of their world and introduced her to things she never imagined would have existed.
Emilie has finally been able to reach her cousin and gives her all the news, just as their interviews and adventures are published in newspapers all over. But before they can enjoy it, Professor Abindon, an old colleague of Professor and Lady Marlendes, warns them he she has come across something strange and deadly in the sky. There is a disruption in the air aether current.
But as they look into it, they realize it is another ship!
Could it be the one that was lost up there years ago? But impossible, there is no way they could still be alive.
Emilie is going to join the crew again and as they all prepare for the expedition they discover a surprise. Emilie’s uncle has come to take her away. As he screams ugly accusations; Emilie is defended by all.
They leave, but when they’ve started their journey they discover that they have a stow away. It is Emilie’s younger brother Efrain. It must run in the family.
When they arrive on the ship it is absent of all people. Strange like the bermuda triangle.
They then find a flower-like creature and the whole group is transported to another world or dimension.
Now Emilie, her brother, and this plant like creature have to find the rest of the crew, return somehow to their ship, and battle a creature who is trying to posses a host and take over the galaxy.
Thoughts After Reading:
I loved it. I thought it was compelling, interesting, and well put together.
The only thing that bothered me was that Emilie goes on and on about her older brother Erin, but he doesn’t appear in the book. It would have been perfect of he was a part of the stranded air crew and that was why he never come back.
So far there isn’t another book, but I would love to see a third installment.
