I heard of Song of Scarabaeus but heard Joint review with Has originally posted here: I found her to be a pragmatic sensible person with a large heart.

It was very refreshing in a world of sci fi romance where it I enjoyed these two books for two reasons – first of all, the science fiction was actually interesting. I think Finn is one of my favorite heroes.

Children of Scarabaeus — All About Romance

Wonderful character development, a lush, fleshed out environment, suspense, romance, and a multi-layered storyline makes for great reading! Children of Scarabaeus does a very good job in tying up all scarabaeis loose plot strings left over from Song of Scarabaeus. Overall this series was too short and needed more in depth world building. They plan to fly to the Fringe, and use the cryptoglyph Finn chi,dren carrying in his head to help liberate the Fringe worlds zcarabaeus their reliance on Crib technology.

Unfortunately, her freedom is short-lived, childdren the Crib government catches up with Edie and her friends, and reclaims her as their property. I chose to skim over them. Nevertheless, Children of Scarabaeus was an exciting read and I will be looking forward to more books by this author. In fact I think because of her lush descriptive writing and multi-layered characters I will have put her firmly in my autobuy list.


In the first book I could accept that, since I knew there would be another book coming in which Finn’s past could be explored.

She even made a choice that will impact billions of people without seeking their consent in her defense, it was a time sensitive choice. When they returned to the planet, the descriptions of the lifeforms and wildlife felt so vivid and epic and alienesque.

With book two, the emotional relationship is bumped up a level but the sexual relationship remains undeveloped. They always seem more concerned with the others welfare more than their own.

Joint Review – Children of Scarabaeus by Sara Creasy

The descriptions of the biocyph and cyperteck technology as Edie sees it continues to be fascinating. I was very happy with the way Creasy ended the book.

Natesa is her former boss with the Crib, and acted as her so called mentor from the time she was a teenager. Edie grapples with the need to escape with Scarabaejs to save the Fringe worlds or incite the Crib by kidnapping the coveted and gifted children.

Lists with This Book. The world is vast but consistent, the characters familiar and compelling.

Preview — Children of Scarabaeus by Sara Creasy. But this one really showed how much they have grown closer to each other compared to the unwilling allies when they first met. Touched by an Alien. Edie and Finn are great characters, and I scarabaeud liked their romance.

I also liked seeing Cat again, she was a fun, interesting character that I would like to see more of, she has a lot of depth and mystery that I think would be great to explore further, if Ms.

With her career on the line, Liv Natesa needs Edie, and she has no problem doing what ever it takes to ensure her own success, even if it means killing or using young children again. I loved that Ms. I love the science and world building in these novels.

But Natesa’s control extends only so far, especially as the work on her precious Project Ardra isn’t exactly thriving. Yet, there were a few small issues that irked me as I read through this installment. It was so good.

Edie would show a teensy smidgey iota of romantic angst, and then just go back to the old song and dance about how she is so sick of being used, and she just wants her own life. I really really enjoyed it and I thought that Sara Creasy combined the elements of science fiction and romance really well.

It was a neat and interesting spin, and I was completely drawn into the story and engrossed in each and every turn!
