I remember little of this novel other than it was somewhat satisfying. ( )

Oh. My. I had some trepidation about reading this sequel, and while holding back for a while was a wise decision, eventually I had to know what happened to Emilio and the Jesuit-led expedition to Rakhat.

This decision was a good one, and led me to re-read "Sparrow" for the third time. And this book also covers two separate timeframes, actually three, while incorporating a whole lotta human arrogance cloaked in the guise of helping. Or concluding. Or something like that.

This book still remains in the head of Emilio and also deals with the second Jesuit voyage to Rakhat to put things right. Emilio serves as a linguist to teach the new group the languages and customs, and he also specifies the language proficiency he needs to be able to teach within a framework that will stand. He begins to heal his heart and falls for a young woman in Naples who has a young daughter. And then he is kidnapped.

Meanwhile, on Rakhat, Sophia Mendes has survived the attack on the Runa town that took away Emilio and Fr. Robineaux, and she gives birth to her and Jimmy's son. Time passes, the Runa form an enclave where they can live separate from the predations of the Jana'ata, and they begin to revolutionize their society. And Supaari finds that his new status is not what he thought it would be upon the birth of his daughter. So he leaves. And Hlavin Kitheri plots more intricately, and soon the entire Jana'ata culture is changed.

There are subtle twists and turns and plotlines, all of which lead to unexpected places. Some are beautiful, some are tragic, and all are heart-tugging in a way that I did not think a sequel could achieve. ( )

I think I liked this better than the first book. ( )

I'm not going to post my full review or thoughts here until Katie reads and finishes this. But this was a mixed bag of good and just okay for me. I thought the book's overall conceit didn't *quite* work, but the sub-narrative was incredibly lovely. 3.5 stars. ( )

Because I loved [b: The Sparrow|334176|The Sparrow (The Sparrow, #1)|Mary Doria Russell|https://i.gr-assets.com/images/S/compressed.photo.goodreads.com/books/1230829367l/334176._SY75_.jpg|3349153] so much, I was more disappointed than if I had just read this sequel on its own merits. While this book followed the relevant plot lines to their inevitable conclusion, the methods were a bit contrived, and some of the dramatic points were sucker-punches. All in all, it relied less on character development than the first book, which made it less compelling to read. ( )
