Perron and Simpson Warp Us, Again!

Perron and Simpson Warp Us, Again!

Wasteland Renegades by Kristene Perron and Joshua Simpson, is book two of the Warp World Series.  It is also the answer to one of my wishes.  I was so hooked on the characters and their adventures that I wished for more and I got Wasteland Renegades.  I am not disappointed. 

Ama and Seg are in Seg’s world.  But they spend most of the time separated.  Seg has everybody on his back and has to keep everyone as satisfied as he can.  Ama doesn’t understand.  She has no patience and causes all sorts of trouble.  Poor Ama, although I could have shook her if I could, my heart went out to her when she was being “processed.”  She will never be the same.

There are some new characters.  The bad guys are really bad.  The good guys are likeable.  The authors, Kristene Perron and Joshua Simpson characterize very well.  I love and hate exactly where the authors wanted me to.  These authors are masters of thrilling suspense.  Their depiction of Warp World is delineated very clearly.  I can picture Seg’s world and Julewa Keep.  The action is making my heart race around. 

The novel ends before the smoke is cleared.  The reader knows that Seg’s troops have control of Julewa Keep, but at what cost, and what now?  I don’t know.  And where’s Ama? 

The authors leave us on the cliff.   #%^#**  That’s what I said too, or as The People would say, Karg!
