    It?s been too long since I indulged in some #sciencefiction. I?m really glad this is the title that broke my fast. Didn?t realize this was a series when I started this read. But having not read the first did not diminish my reading. I do want to read the first one now as well...

    There are some sequels that can function as stand-alone novels, in my opinion Rebel Sisters is not one of them. Potential readers definitely need to have read and remember War Girls, since much of the plot is about characters dealing with the emotional and physical fallout from the eve...

    Much like War Girls, this sequel has a lot of potential and a lot of interesting things going on, but it just feels too muddled and too much. It doesn't help that half the story is told from the perspective of this synth robot/human hybrid that only speaks in the present tense and...

    CW: violence, war, murder, death (including death of minors), torture, gore, implied sexual assault, epidemic, racism, sexism ? 3+ ? I DNFed this temporarily halfway through but I'm glad I ended up going back to finish it because the last third of this book was the best ...

    *3.5* I will admit, not as good as the first one but still such an enjoyable sci-fi. The world building is fantastic and just so imaginative. I love that this is a woman centric story, with strong female mcs. The story for me took a while to get going but once it did... Th...

    I did not enjoy reading this sequel to War Girls, I think in part because I didn't care for book 1 much. But I did appreciate some of the questions the novel raised: Would it be better to completely forget about a trauma you've experienced, as though it never happened, or bet...

    I found that, like War Girls, the writing was very good and the world building was really intriguing. However, I didn't feel that the characters were at a bit of a remove - I had a bit of a hard time feeling in touch with even the main cast, and much of the time I didn't feel...

    This was not as good as War Girls. The dual POV made it twice as hard to get caught up on everything in the story. Uzo's first person present tense robot speak clashed with Ify's third person. The moral lessons were very explicit around racism, xenophobia, immigration, an...

    I had issues with this book. Mainly the pace. The skips in the storyline. But I had a lot of trouble with Uzo's pov. As a non-native English speaker, the accent was incredibly difficult to read. It's like my brain short-circuited every time. So, unfortunately, I didn't e...

    The sequel to War Girls. I really enjoyed this book along with the first one. I've learned a lot about the history, the characters and I love the world building. I think I enjoyed the first book a little more as this one I felt disconnected with the characters when I didn't i...

    Thank you to the publisher and NetGalley for giving me the opportunity to read an ARC of this great book! Rebel Sisters is the sequel to War Girls, and it continues Ify's story after the events in the first book. Ify is now living in the Space Colonies, and she is struggling to de...

    Rebel Sisters checks all the boxes for a basic sci-fi story. Even though I barely remembered the events of War Girls it was easy to fall into this one. I was quickly compelled by Uzo and the writing effortlessly drew me in. But the further I read the more I felt like things were repeti...

    I definitely don?t think this one was as good as the first book ... I think it?s because I didn?t like Ify as much as the main character of this one. The story started out slower and didn?t pick up until about halfway through for me. It did get really exciting though at point...

    It's actually 451 pages long. It was better than the first book. And I like how Tocho Onyebuchi includes Today's China. For example, in Xifeng the government treat the Muslims and force them to become "Chineses". Something I liked is the relationship between If...

    There is an overwhelming emphasis on trying to make humans perceive robots or synthetic humans as actual human. It's overly repetitive and annoying. There's also the actual repetition of memory in this novel. The author clearly trying to drive home the point that our experien...

    4.5 rounded up. This was. So good. And it gave such a nuanced, rounded view of war and how sometimes (many times) there are no right answers about what should be done, and what to do to help people. There's just no good choices and this book portrayed that in such an excellent man...

    Rebel Sisters continues the story of Ify and Onyii four years after the events of War Girls. This is a story about moving forward and finding a place - a home - after unspeakable trauma and hardship. Like War Girls, Rebel Sisters took some time to get going. The story was quite inte...

    After the events of War Girls, Ify seems to be conforming to the environment that is the space colonies, putting all her effort into forgetting her past, her people, where she is from and what she endured; her vengeance, and the ones who meant so much to her and fought for and with her...
