    Broken left some unanswered questions and stranded some compelling characters Unfortunately, while competent enough, this book neither answers these questions nor really gives us a fix of the kind of character development Bigelow is capable of.We do get to follow up on some of the things hinted at in the earlier book We get to see what becomes of Penny Silverwing Broken, we visit a Raton world, we discover that the government has indeed learned how to turn off some extrahumans powers although we do not confirm that this is what had happened to Broken.But overall, I found this a bit workmanlike The first book introduced us to a fairly complex world, with entangled history, politics, and subgroups, plus aliens While this fleshed some of the worldbuilding out, I didn t actually feel like I learned all that much than I already knew from the hints of the first book Michael Forward and Broken were deeply compelling characters with whom I empathized Unfortunately, I kind of feel like Broken s arc was fully covered before here, she feels perfunctory and less interesting And Sky Ranger honestly, I still don t like him His redemption and punishment happened all offstage we re expected to feel sorry for him that no one trusts him when he has not done anything in our view to earn that trust More annoyingly, most of the minor characters feel like caricatures The minor refugees, for example, seem to exist entirely to be bigoted and irritating They do incredibly stupid things for no discernible reason other than to create obstacles for Renna Brian is never than an enigma it s never clear how trustworthy he is, not in a changing loyalties way so much as an undeveloped way The minor character that actually showed some hints of complexity, the base commander, meanwhile drops off the page entirely.The plot moves along relatively briskly, and I do like Dee and the two guys from the desert world I ll probably read the next one, just to wrap up some of the loose ends I m still curious about the universe and what happens to a couple of the characters But I hope that Bigelow gives us a little of the depth of the first book.

    Note this is a spoiler free review I wrote for the series covering Broken, Fly Into Fire, and The Spark.Every so often in a reader s life they come across a set of books that makes their jaw drop Not because they re awesome, or surprising, or because they re unlike anything you ve read before, not even because they are so real The Extrahumans series by Susan Jane Bigelow is all these things, but the jaw dropping results from the fact that they are absolutely criminally under read Yes, every time you discover a new author and series to love it is shiny to you, and you get excited and want to tell everyone ever but in the case of Extrahumans, this series isn t just new to me, it s new to nearly everyone in the book community So take notes, because I m about to tell you why Extrahumans is worth your time and money seriously folks, you can purchase this entire trilogy as e books for less than one hardcover would cost you This was it, then No waiting.His heart pounded His possibilities all had this moment, but he didn t have to take it He could put it down He could run away He could live The world would shift and change he felt the possibilities morphing and twisting out ahead of him This moment, than any other, could change them all Take him, the woman said shakily Take him She pressed a warm, squirming bundle into his arms.There was no choice, really He took it from her, and half of the possibilities winked out of existence.Me attempting to pitch Extrahumans to the boyfriend It s the first series I ve read and thought Wow, this would make an amazing graphic novel, but it really works in prose format It has a lot of the same moral issues as X Men, with the grungy aftertaste of Watchmen You know, forcibly retired superheroes only with actual powers so they have an odd standing in society.In fact, it s like Watchmen and X Men had a beautiful awesome baby that grew up to be it s own thing instead of derivative If that makes any sense.Susan Jane Bigelow s Extrahumans is a series that is greater than the sum of its parts She throws us into a dystopian type setting just as the government shifts hands and wrests strict control over the human populated planets of the universe Through this change, we see how those who suffered prejudices under the old government would suffer greatly under a new regime The Extrahumans, a group of humans with powers, have been forcibly rounded up and had their lives restricted to a single tower in New York City Compelled to work for the government, often as some sort of law enforcement, the Extrahumans were robbed of their families, names, and any choice in who they would become.Over the years, some Extrahumans escaped the tower, while others avoided being found in the first place Broken, a former member of the Extrahuman s enforcement squad, escapes with her healing powers after losing her ability to fly Lucky they let go when she became un Lucky Michael the never found Michael is a prescient, able to see potential futures when he looks directly at someone Living outside of Extrahuman society he s marked himself as a Cassandra, able to tell the future that no one will believe no one until he meets Broken Together, Broken and Michael must work together to set events on a course with the best outcome possible for humanity Unfortunately, the other side has a prescient working for them as well.Susan Jane Bigelow has done such an amazing job crafting this series We get to see the world fall apart, but it isn t the world we care about in the long run, it s the individuals It is a story that comes full circle through the letters of a prescient Extrahuman that dies several years before the first book opens If you re looking for your standard dystopian rebellion and government collapse fare, I m afraid you ll have to look elsewhere this isn t it What Extrahumans is is an amazingly written, action packed, and very philisophical examination of what it means to be human.The Extrahumans are a people who have to deal with the labels that have been pressed upon them, right down to the ridiculous superhero names the government gave them Extrahumans Like we re something extra Not really human Just something else that the rest of them don t need But it isn t just the Extrahumans Susan Jane Bigelow uses this world to show us the parallel struggles of all marginalized groups, through gender and sexuality, religion, or political beliefs It is the type of series where the reader will take away as much as they want you can just sit back and enjoy the ride, but you can also grab hold of this wonderful opportunity to really think about everything Susan Jane Bigelow so subtly deals with.For me, Broken, was the most edge of my seat exciting of the three, Fly Into Fire was much slowly paced, but the stakes started to ramp up as the book went on However, The Spark was truly the book that shined of the three, showing how well plotted this story had been from the beginning and focusing on the character who easily became my favorite by the end Each book is different from the others in perspective, pace, and story, but what remains consistent is Susan Jane Bigelow s ability to take the road less traveled She managed to surprise me consistently, and I wanted to hug her by the end for being willing to say screw fate , even if we ll end up where we re meant to be regardless.Original review posted at Bunbury in the Stacks.

    even tho I read this faaaar slower than Broken, and structurally it doesn t flow quite as well from one scene to another, I think I liked this mostly because of the cast Dee and Renna which also made me super sad bc bad things just KEPT on happening to the characters and I m like, why can t they just be happy for ONE SOLID CHAPTER WHYYYYYY can t wait for the next book ie Dee s book tho

    Redemption isn t easy when a your former allies are now your feeling betrayed enemies, and b your former enemies and now possible allies don t trust you Sky Ranger, former leader of the Extrahuman Union and known traitor to the Reform Party you know, the same Reform Party that killed the rest of the Extrahuman Union , has put three years of work into fighting against the Reform Party and has bailed out of Earth now only as a last resort The not very legal refugee ship he escapes on, however, crashes onto a desert planet, and he and the fellow survivors have to find a way to survive and to dodge the Confederation Military Police hunting them down.Meanwhile, back on another planet, Penny is presented with an opportunity to possibly locate the lost Sky RangerEven better than the first book Yes, I rushed to buy and then read this book immediately after finishing Broken I found the characters emotionally immersive, and the world building really coalesced in this one Bigelow has a talent for juggling multiple characters and storylines all the minor characters I LOVE THEM they all served various purposes but felt real, expansive beyond what they did for the plot , and the plot was, unsurprisingly, fast and well developed Lots of politics, lots about the Extrahuman experience, and lots of little things that made me happy a transwoman main character with subtlety and a lack of identity angst , cats, a couple that argues and sees one another s flaws and differences but clearly loves each other, families of friends.I d recommend starting with the first book, because it s good in its own right and because it establishes some of the foundational characters and history.And omg WHAT WAS IN RENNA AND BRIAN S LETTER And how long do I have to wait for the next book

    I was thrilled to read Fly Into Fire and Susan Bigelow did not disappoint Once again, the strength of the story is in the realistic, sympathetic characters and the political mechanations creaking along ominously in the background.This part of the extrahumans story has Sky Ranger s attempts at redemption as a major component Having seen the error of his ways at the very end of Broken, he has been trying to do what he can to set things right until he is forced to leave Earth on a refugee ship.Everyone settles in for the three month voyage, and no one likes Sky Ranger very much They are wary of extrahumans in general, wary of Sky Ranger as a former Confederation Party poster boy in particular, or both When their refugee ship crashes on a planet that is mostly desert, tensions rachet up even higher The only people who will talk to Sky Ranger are a woman named Renna who has a mysterious past, and a quiet extrahuman teenager named Dee.The survivors are scattered when ConFedMilPol is accidentally alerted to their location by old alien technology, and the remainder of the story tells the long roads they take to come together again, crossing paths with Penny Silverwyng.They do come together again before the end of the book, but not before view spoiler rescuing Dee from a military lab where she has been subjected to medical testing and torture Dee herself ends up saving the day, but I cried for her It feels like there is a parallel here with her and Michael Forward from Broken both teenagers forced into adult roles and almost, almost making it through without disaster hide spoiler

    Premise Sequel to Broken When last we saw Sky Ranger, he had shaken off the manipulations of the oppressive government and was off to exact some unspecified revenge or justice Or possibly both This book follows Sky later as he deals with his past supporting the corrupt government and tries his best to protect the few other extrahumans that remain.I liked this sequel quite a bit I liked getting about Sky Ranger, he s an interesting character I liked the new characters as they were introduced, with all of their own troubles, and the return of some of the characters from the first book The mix of superheroes and sci fi dystopia continues there s emphasis on the space travel and sci fi aspects in this one There were some scenes of torture that I found really unpleasant, but necessarily so The book basically opens with a crash landing, Sky Ranger and a group of other refugees fleeing Earth crash on a mostly desert planet and have to survive there I really loved Sky Ranger s relationships with Renna and Dee, two young women from the crash The plot twists than a few times, and actually does read like a comic, in that it s several short plotlines strung together than one long arc That s fine by me Action, adventure and heroes, sounds like a good read.

    I enjoyed this book than I expected At the end of Broken, I hated Sky Ranger, a now a book in which he was a main character He s got no leadership skills, and yet was the ostensible leader of the Extrahumans He s a sniveling toady, has few convictions of his own, and despite being a superhero, he s quite spineless He uses I was following orders as a supposed excuse for his destruction of an entire race, and his support of an obviously fascistic regime Not a very heroic person, by any stretch Why would anybody ever follow someone like this It s no wonder that everyone hates him It s sad to see him treated so poorly, but he really does deserve nothing less.Well, he doesn t improve a whole lot over the course of the book, and thankfully he s largely left out of the climactic rescue he s off on his own, doing something fairly unrelated to the main thrust of the plot.Luckily, Sky Ranger is thrown together with some other Extrahumans, who have an interesting collection of abilities, personality to spare, and plenty of conviction I look forward to seeing these characters in later stories.My favorite of the characters, Dee, has a neat power, and takes control of the situation when it s most needed She s a hero She grows as well as possible, considering the circumstances she s in I look forward to seeing of her, too.

    Follow up to the first book, with most of the surviving characters from that Read it in a day and found it highly enjoyable I m probably predisposed to enjoy superhero shenanigans, but the characters are just so much fun to read about.This was the one with the trans point of view character, and I liked how she was handled.Copy editing issues persist, and one character is starting to feel a bit like a deus ex mechina, however, I can live with it, and am looking forward to the next book.
