Bad Moon Rising - Creedence Clearwater Revival

The Web of Titan
Galahad, Book 2

Dom Testa
Pages: 255
Publisher: Tor

Brief Summary:

Triana, Bon, Gap and all the rest are back in the second installment. They are preparing for their slingshot by Saturn. On the way, they have to pick up a pod from a team of scientists on Titan, one of Saturn's moon. As they draw close, one of the girls on the ship, who likes to study Titan, notices a weird beam coming at the ship. And then things start getting weird and kind of scary. Will the gang of teens be able to survive yet another crisis?

I read and reviewed The Comet's Curse, the first book in this series, last week. Check out my review here. For once, I don't actually have all that much to say. This book is much like the first, so, if you loved that one, The Web of Titan will not disappoint. The same relationship drama is here, only with a couple of new players. No real progress is made on that front of course.

As for the plot of this novel, it is less interesting than the last. While the previous novel had the interesting dystopian aspects to keep it going and of getting started, this one is entirely dependent on the tension provided by the beam. That really just didn't cause me to feel anything but boredom. The problem is that it's so obvious Testa does not have any plans to kill anyone off, not to mention the whole ship worth of kids. Knowing that, there is no doubt that they will survive the crisis, making it not feel so much like a crisis.

This series is okay, but nothing special. Next up is book three, The Cassini Code. Hopefully, it will prove me wrong.

I see trouble on the way."
