Summary:What happens when you live longer than you wanted to?
Parvin Blackwater wanted to die, but now she’s being called to be a leader. The only problem is, no one wants to follow.
The Council uses Jude’s Clock-matching invention to force “new-and-improved” Clocks on the public. Those who can’t afford one are packed into boxcars like cattle and used for the Council’s purposes.
Parvin and Hawke find themselves on a cargo ship of Radicals headed out to sea. What will the Council do to them? And why are people suddenly dying before their Clocks have zeroed-out?
Book Two in the “Out of Time” series.
I really enjoyed A Time to Speak more than I did the first. It was full of excitement, had awesome characters, and a great storyline. As soon as I started I couldn't put it down (it was an e-copy, but it still counts.) :) I literally stayed up into the wee hours of the next morning, and even then, it took me a while to fall asleep because my nerves had yet to calm down from that ending. (It's hard to easily calm down from it. Other readers will agree.) Nadine did an excellent job bringing the story to life, in a world full of so many cool inventions (I really want the learning pill. Instant knowledge would be pretty great) and we got to join up with favorite characters from the last book like Willow, Parvin, Solomon, and others.
I feel like I was able to connect more with Parvin in this book. She had gone through a lot, and realized that she had been trusting her clock more than God. I learned a lot from her in the story, and I like how Nadine had an underlying lesson to trust God throughout the book. I just felt like I kept learning life lessons while reading an adventure, which was awesome.
I had quite a few favorite parts, but most of them had to do with 2 certain someone's. :) *When Hawke lets someone escape, and when a guy professes his love to Parvin. It was the sweetest thing guys! I would totally want a guy to say and think that of me. The writing was well done, and I would suggest this to anyone who wants to have an adventure in another world, full of new things, and learn lessons from the characters.
If you've read the books, what was one of your favorite parts? If you haven't read them, are you going to?
I rate this book 5 out of 5 stars.
