As the second book in a series, Earth Afire begins to weave the characters lives together as I had hoped. In the first book, Earth Unaware, people were depicted going about their lives as usual, (if deep-space mineral mining and living on a colonized Luna is usual). The crisis we already know about is coming. Earth Afire really explodes into action and moves along rapidly, helped in no small measure by the performances of the narrators.
But I think the editorial decision to stop the story where it did was too abrupt. In fact, it felt like hitting a brick wall after jumping off a cliff on a hang glider with one wing and no 'chute. I know that there's at least a few more paragraphs, if not a few more chapters, that could have been used as an epilog or something. It left me HANGIN', man!
