A few days ago I finished Kay Kenyon’s A World Too Near, the second in a science fiction series mostly taking place in a strange parallel universe not too “far” from ours.
This is good writing. Good enough to forgive what I thought were two big errors in the first book. This book develops the characters further, unravels their emotional lives, and puts seemingly insurmountable obstacles in their way. One notable point is the supporting cast: also well-drawn and complex, as any sentient characters should be.
My only quibble with this volume is Kenyon’s big wide universe, but very little wonder communicated about it. I’d recommend the first book if you haven’t read it. This one may be a notch below it, but not too far off. A series worth following.
