Book Review — The Deaths of Tao (Tao #2) by Wesley Chu

The Deaths of TaoThe Deaths of Tao by Wesley Chu
My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I hear Wesley Chu is now a full-time writer, which I think is incredible news because it means it’s yet another author that we’ve caught young and can follow their careers for a long, long time.

The Deaths of Tao is in every way an improvement over its predecessor.

It’s wittier and funnier. It’s paced better. It hits harder emotionally.

Some years have passed since the events in The Lives of Tao and our relationship with Roen and the Quasing has deepened. The snippets at the beginning of each chapter give you insight into the history of the Prophus and the Genjix, and let me tell you that the conflict grows exponentially to something you wouldn’t have expected.

You start to see both sides of the story and become invested into an intrigue that has moved to a global stage.

Overall, more thrilling action scenes, but now with a heavy touch of politics that makes this a book worth your time.

AND OH MAN THAT ENDING. Tao #3 can’t get here soon enough.
