Reading Recommendation: Endurance, by Jay Lake

I liked Green a lot, perhaps the most of all of Jay’s work for far.  Endurance is the sequel to Green, and it’s even better.  I can see why Publisher’s Weekly gave it a starred review.  The word building added more layers to Copper Downs than we saw in Green, and revealed new information in a way that left me with a nice sense of wonder about the setting and the gods, and a more adult viewpoint about the city of Copper Downs.

I always enjoy Jay’s world building and prose.  In Endurance, his plotting is tight, as there is a lot of  nuance to his main character.  If you liked Green, buy this.  If you haven’t read Green, you have time to finish it before the release date of Endurance next month.
