Undying managed to keep the fun adventure going even though we lost the fun setting of outer space. Sure, the story starts in outer space but we do eventually end up back on Earth. We also ended up on a road trip to save the world which is a bit cliche. I did miss the puzzles from the first book.
The big twist of making the Undying humans from the future was cool. I love a good alien story so it was a bit disappointing that they weren’t truly alien. The idea of our enemies being us is a terrifying idea. Atlanta and Dex were a great addition to the story. Having two teenage Undying stuck with Mia and Jules made sense.
The science behind everything got a bit murky for me. The lost Centauri mission got lost and did some space jumping? This leads to some sort of time jumps which puts them much further in the future than we are. I know better than to fully understand the science in my science fiction so I’m okay to just roll with it.
This was the end of the duology. Despite that, there was a very middle book of a trilogy feel to the story. Things were laid in place that made you think more was to come. The story does fully wrap up in the end but it still feels like there should be more.
The bottom line? Enjoyable wrap-up.
