It doesn’t hurt that Finn is such a delicious character, he’s strong, very alpha, caring and absolutely oozes sex appeal. I loved this one. Can we start a campaign? As I said before, there is room for a sequel and even in this installment, I don’t doubt that Creasy could have very easily split Children of Scarabaeus into two scsrabaeus, allowing for a trilogy instead.

Apr 03, Pamela rated it really liked it Shelves: But escape—for Edie, for Finn, and for the exploited young—will require the ultimate sacrifice.

Children of Scarabaeus — All About Romance

Original, complex, great characters Simply because it was “the right thing to do” arguableor because she could empathize with their situation also arguable, since unlike Edie in her childhood, these kids at least appeared to be relatively dcarabaeus There are too many characters to cover in this review but every character, in both novels, exhibited realistic motivations.

I also loved the addition of new characters in this book, specifically the kids. The characters were really strong in this one, almost more so than the first.

It might be a cildren confusing if you haven’t: And the much awaited sex scene was, no pun intended, anti-climactic. I think this book really cemented their romance and I know this is the last book in the series, I really hope there is more in the future especially about them.

Joint Review – Children of Scarabaeus by Sara Creasy

I just did not get Natesa. I hope this author writes more because I will definitely read it. The universe in the novels was filled with strong characters, each multidimensional and provoking. Then there is the ever present military asshat Childten Theron who was in charge of the original Scarabaeus team that Edie and her boss Bethany worked for. It was a neat and interesting spin, and I was completely drawn into the story and engrossed in each and every turn!

Sixth Grave on the Edge. The crib is everywhere.

Children of Scarabaeus (Scarabaeus, book 2) by Sara Creasy

The weakest element in the story is the mixed messaging, but this did not hinder my enjoyment. For one, I was ever-so-slightly disappointed by the black-and-white characterization of the villains. It was very refreshing in a world of sci fi romance where it I enjoyed these two books for two reasons – first of all, the science fiction was actually interesting. And poor Finn–I want to like the man, I really do. Thanks for telling us about the problem.


The further Edie delves into the details of the project, the more she realizes just how badly cuildren project is foundering.

It comes pretty close to pleasing me in the same way the first book does, but it has one handicap — it has to complete the story in one book, which means the romance and the complex plot are tied up before I was ready. I really loved the world and the abilities the main character Edie has. It felt like we were retreading the story from the first book, with very little actual forward movement.
