Wayfarer Clans (Wayfarers Book 2) by Eileen Troemel

 Recovering from her ordeal with the Barions, Adara faces new challenges when her oldest brother is captured on a stolen Science Corp vessel. He, his maite saol and son were kidnapped to fly the ship. A rash of kidnappings lead Adara to suggest a Wayfarer clan is adding to their clan. Young girls from group homes and small children are  taken.
Adara struggles with family relations as she meets up with her oldest sister who tells how the clan she joined treated her. Seduction and rape, Bedelia faced hardships worse than Adara could imagine. Adara tries to forgive  and heal the family relations.
Decker and Adara struggle to cope with her family relations when it is discovered that three of her siblings are with the clan who is kidnapping all the children. Wayfarer and human relations are strained between the couple and on a larger scale.
Admiral Chesnik tries to work with the clan leaders to bring the rogue clan in to justice.

Adara is half human, half wayfarer.   She has captured a ship with kidnapped scientists aboard. The problem is that the rogue ship has her brother Nealon on board, and this brings up a whole slew of feelings for Adara to deal with. She feels abandoned by her family, and struggles to understand where she fits in. Then, a larger plot is revealed that could jeopardize human-wayfarer relations.

I thought this book had a big story to tell. I’m not a huge fan of sci-fi, but I think the world building in this story is really good. There’s a lot of action and very complicated characters that I wish I could have spent more time with.

Adara is a very interesting and thoughtful character. I have to admit that I have become invested in her story to see how it turns out for her and her family. To me, that’s what a good author does – they get you thinking about the character long after you’ve finished the book. I’m ready to find out all that happens in Adara’s world, so bravo there!

Overall, I enjoyed this book. I wish it was longer, but since there’s more to read I won’t complain too much! 4 stars.
