Everybody space danceContains spoilers from the first book Dark SpaceI just finished Darker Space and I want to tell EVERYONE that I am so freakin' happy with that ending That's the ending I was looking for in the last book I think That's my biggest regret about this book I really wish I'd reread Dark Space before starting this one I love that book it really made an impression but I still have trouble remembering the details And that bugs the SHIT out of meBut moving on I was a little worried I wasn't going to like the book in the beginning Brady is a bad place emotionally I'm in a bad place emotionally That's not always a great mix But in this case I feel like it just increased my understanding of him and what he's going throughBrady grew up poor and hungry and abused He had a shit life To uote Brady himself he had been raised with nothing but fear and anger and no hope for anything different He loved his father and his little sister He loves intensely and hates intensely Life has taught him to fight and scrap for anything he cares about Always fought I whispered Always kept kicking even when I was down The problem is he doesn't know how or when to stop fighting He's like Mad Eye MoodyOnly better looking At the beginning of the book he's having problems settling into a peaceful life He's scared shitless his boyfriend Cam and his sister Lucy will be taken from him or leave or disappear if they’re not right in front of him He's scared shitless of everything he knows can go wrong On one hand I totally identified with Brady I empathized but I also wanted to shake him just a leetle and tell him toI don't know be positive Rise above Take a chance on happiness Yada yada yada Okay if I'd said that to him I'm 999999% sure I would've gotten this responseAnd I really wouldn't blame him at all What are simple words found in a million self help books do they have those in the future in the face of his experienceIt also doesn't help Brady that the military was constantly pulling him and Cam aside and uestioning them and testing them about The Faceless It was just another reminder of everything that did go wrong and could go wrong in the futureAnd that's the thing about people like Brady pessimists just to use a really simplistic term they're not wrong They may emotionally exhaust themselves and everyone around them but they are actually really right a lot of the time And Brady is right to fear the return of The Faceless Whether they’re exactly what he fears or not their reappearance will bring danger to those he loves most SHIT GOES DOWN PEOPLE But you know spoilersThe thing isThe Faceless Again I can't remember if this was a main theme in the first book probably but The Faceless and the black of endless space that Brady so fears for me those things represent the fear of the unknown The fears we all have of every shit thing that could ever happen to us Our loved ones dying Getting fired or let go from a job and not being able to support ourselves or our family People leaving Wars Our own death From the tiniest to the biggest worry all the shit we can't control can't predict and don't even have a name forBrady has attempted to fight that shit his whole life Sometimes he gets somewhere and sometimes he's just punching at walls literally The point of this book is getting Brady to say fuck that shit fuck the unknown Also to recognize that the unknown is sometimes a lot less scary than the known It's the humans and Brady himself much of the time who really attempt to fuck Brady over in this book And in the last one now that I'm thinking about it Like the Pogo comic strip said Okay definitely rambling here I don't know if any of that makes any sense Or if it sounds like a middle school paper on the Myth of Sisyphus with a lot swearing What I learned from Lisa Henry's Darker Space by Rosa reallyWhatever fuck it On the hand we have Brady's boyfriend Cam I love Cam I love him for loving Brady I think Cam came back from 4 years of living with the unemotional Faceless and was immediately trapped with this punk ass kid Brady who feels everything so intensely I think he loves that in Brady his fighting spirit He's a little too perfect though In this book and the last I kept waiting for him to freak out it would only be normal right But maybe he doesn't have to because Brady freaks out enough for 3 people He's also the flip side of Brady while Brady rages against the unfairness of it all Cam has faith things will work out It's not that he's naively optimistic; it's that he acknowledges that they might all be fucked but they might as well face it calmly In the boiling maelstrom of the universe he was my calm He and Brady are the perfect matched set though I sometimes wonder how their relationship would work in our realityLuckily it's a book so I don't have to worry about that Again I am just so happy with this book The only thing that keeps me from giving it a full five stars is the beginning But it's definitely one of my favorites of 2015 Thanks to all my BR buddies for the great read
