Reseña del editor
The much-anticipated sequel to The Obsidian Blade transports readers to the terrifying and thrilling world of Lah Lia, the enigmatic girl who changed Tucker Feye’s life.
More than half a millennium in the future, in the shadow of the looming Cydonian Pyramid, a pampered girl named Lah Lia has been raised for one purpose: to be sacrificed through one of the mysterious diskos that hover over the pyramid’s top. But just as she is about to be killed, a strange boy appears from the diskos, providing a cover of chaos that allows her to escape and launching her on a time-spinning journey in which her fate is irreversibly linked to his. In this second volume of the Klaatu Diskos trilogy, Tucker Feye and Lah Lia each hurtle through time, relating their stories in alternating viewpoints that converge at crucial moments. Fans of the first adventure will be intrigued by the chance to see the world through Lah Lia’s eyes — no matter how disturbing the vision might be.

And now he's switched genres again, with science fiction. The CYDONIAN PYRAMID starts half a millennium in the future, Lah Lia, a Pure Girl has experienced her Blood Moon and is about to be sacrificed and thrown into a portal leading to another time and place. If she returns, she will be a Yar, or holy woman (nun?). Just as a priest is about to stab her, Tucker Feye (supposedly the boy Abraham sacrificed to the Old Testament God) saves her and they both jump into the portal.
But they go in different directions. Tucker ends up at the North Pole just as a nuclear submarine breaks through the ice; Lah Lia falls from such a height she needs hospitalization. A Medicant wants payment after she's treated. She's sold to a Boggsian, a kind of cross between an Amish adherent and a Quantum mechanics technician. There's a bit of satire in Hautman's books. The Lah Sept, Lah Lia's people, blame a plague on the Boggsian's and their obsession with technology and numbers. The Lah Sept don't mention numbers.
Hautman has Lah Lia and Tucker jumping in and out of these portals or disks, perhaps too many times, throughout the book. Lah Lia likes Tucker but she can't find the right disk to take her where Tucker is.
Oh, yes, there's also a war going on between the priests and the Yars, eventually anyway. There's a big battle scene atop the Pyramid.
It's a bit disconcerting and ironic to think that a five hundred years into the future, Quantum theory will have joined with the Amish to fall further into the past, while advancing in years. In both THE MORTAL NUTS and GODLESS Hautman displays a wicked sense of humor. That's missing here, perhaps necessarily.
Hautman does an excellent job of keeping the story moving, trickling little tidbits of information about the origin of the diskos here and there, and the political struggle of the various Klaatu. Managing to make some pretty good science and philosophy jokes along the way. I would recommend this series to most adults I know that are interested in Sci-fi. I was actually a little surprised at how well written this was considering it's listed as YA. It's easily as well written and interesting as, say, something like Ender's Game. I suspect it's marketed as YA due to the young age of the protagonists. But it doesn't have many of the common pitfalls of other YA Fantasy literature (like the tedious teen romance entanglements a series like Divergent can sometimes get lost in).
