Feast of Consequences is Volume 2 of A Far Strange Country by Arielle Hunter, picking up where the first volume left off. The Orion Institute at Big Sur, California is burning and illegal partygoers are scattering to the winds as the police and fire service arrive. Parker is on the run again, this time with the help of Deborah, with the FBI hot on his heels while Roxy, Shara, and Donatello all manage to escape the fire and the police. And so begins the final journey. Steven has a chance at being cured of his paralysis – will he take it? Donatello is recovering from his drug stupor and a case of poison oak and is undergoing a new treatment for his epilepsy – will it work? Will he go back to being the big movie star he once was? And where is Slovika, his put-upon wife? Will Steven win Shara back? All these questions and more are answered in Volume 2 of A Far Strange Country. The choices made in Volume I now come home to roost and the consequences must be faced.
A Feast of Consequences by Arielle Hunter is a great ending to the first volume – if you haven’t read it, don’t even think about reading this one as it won’t make any sense. In keeping with the era the book is set in, there is drug use, some soft bad language, and sexual scenes. This is another excellent novel by Arielle Hunter, one that transports you back to the 1960s. If you grew up during that era, this book will feel like you’ve come home and if you weren’t, it gives you a great snapshot of what life was like. This story is packed with action, following on neatly from the first volume and we learn more about the main protagonists as their characters are more fully developed. The story flows well and, although it jumps between characters, it is easy to keep up with and follow. Yes, there are a lot of characters but all of them have their place and their stories fit together like pieces of a jigsaw puzzle. I guarantee you won’t be disappointed with this book – you might want to read Volume I again as a refresher first but the author does provide a decent synopsis as background.
