Vol. 1 was great. This volume tries and falls a little short of that 27 mars 2011
Par David W. Olson - Publié sur Amazon.com
Format: Broché
When I finished Vol. 1 I wanted to read more, and I wondered if the author could keep up the quality. The first chapter of this book, Vol. 2, succeeds in keeping up the quality.

Kieli and Harvey set forth on a ship, to cross the Sand Ocean. She soon meets ten-year-old Julius, and Julius presents two issues for the novel. Harvey quickly learns that Julius is the son of a high church official. Harvey then wants no association with Julius, while Julius wonders why Kieli is traveling with that strange man. Kieli tries to balance her friendship with Julius with her relation with Harvey. Kieli also notices the ghost of a woman near Julius, Julius' mother. Julius, a normal person, never notices the ghost of his mother. Kieli gets upset that she has no memory of her mother and that she doesn't even have the ghost of her own mother. Vol. 2 keeps coming back to these two issues. Kieli and Harvey's trip on this ship, needless to say, does not go uneventfully or smoothly.

When I finished this volume I was curious what happens next. It is certainly an important issue to THEM. But in contrast to volume 1 I felt I could wait a bit before seeking to get the next volume. ('Vol. 3, Prisoners Bound for Another Planet') I wish I could give it 3.5 stars, something a bit better than 3, not quite as good as 4.

Great sequel 25 mai 2015

This is a great sequel to the first book. I loved how big it was(more for me to read!). The pacing was good, and the story was great. I loved that we got to see a bit more of Kieli's past, and even a bit of Harvey's! If you loved the first one, you definitely should read this one.

This book is a complete story, and the opening illustrated color pages do a phenomenal job of summarizing previous events and key concepts. However this series is extremely character driven, and experiencing the nuances of their interactions adds significant depth to everything. I'd highly recommend starting with volume 1.

Kieli is an isolated girl in a world where everything is controlled by the Church of a God she doesn't believe in. Driving and complicating her views and life is her odd ability to see ghosts. However her world expands rapidly after she meets Harvey, one of the legendary Undying. Perfect soldiers from the last great war made from lost technology, Harvey and his ilk are of no further use to Church or State and continually hunted. Tagging along with Harvey's travels, Kieli finds their next destination is across the great ocean...

The Dead Sleep in the Wilderness was an excellent, melancholy story about two complex, compelling leads in a fascinating world. White Wake on the Sand capitalizes wonderfully on the strong start and is just as powerful and captivating. The atmosphere gets creepier and more intense here, something that I can see continuing in later books. New characters and story threads are integrated seamlessly and enhance the book without overwhelming the reader.

The author has an incredibly deft touch with rationing little details and playing with expectations. It allows for tremendous world building that's vivid and evocative while also being gradual and unobtrusive most of the time. The imagination on display in the particular's of the environment and social structure and the subtle way it's all conveyed to the reader without disrupting the narrative is just amazing.

I also adore the way the ghost story aspects are handled in this series. Important themes are touched on and the particulars of the ghost encounters always matter to both character and plot development. Another nice touch is how Kieli's confusion of ghosts and real people is sometimes used to both progress the plot and heighten suspense.

The Kieli series continues to find unique ways to explore heavy, melancholy themes in stories that are also highly entertaining. I am extremely excited about continuing along her journey with her in future volumes.
Necessary for the plot, not as strong an entry as the first 27 janvier 2013

Upon completing the first volume of Kieli, I felt it had strong potential as a YA series, but I found the second somewhat lacking. The second volume picks up directly where the first leaves off, with the Undying soldier Harvey and Kieli crossing the massive Sand Ocean that engulfs most of the planet's surface. As the author notes in her afterword, while the first book takes place mostly on trains, the second replaces these with ships. In this way, it maintains the feel of the original, that aimless wandering that defines Harvey as a character so well. He (and Kieli, by correlation) is constantly on the move and even when there's a destination, it's quite alright if he doesn't make it there in the most straightforward fashion. The tone is firmly in line with the first, which lends major points to this installment.

That said, it feels as if this novel is guiding the reader from one place to another while adding scant details to the overall story. That's not to say that these additions are completely insignificant. Harvey gets a new arm, the reader learns a bit more about the world in which the characters live, and a new character (Julius, the wealthy young son of a high-ranking Church member) is introduced at the expense of personal favorite, the Corporal, who is disappointingly absent for the vast majority of this book. A side note: I hope Julius become something of a recurring character, not because I particularly like him much, but because Kabei spent so much time on him in this book that to never mention him again would feel somewhat wasteful. The most notable informational nuggets are centered on Kieli's mother, who I honestly was not expecting to have much of a role within the story aside from the freedom the absence of her and Kieli's father provides the heroine. It's these parts that I thought were the best within the book, while most of the rest was filler leading up to these revelations. However, none of this is until the end and only barely saves White Wake from being a very mediocre installment in the series.

I do still recommend White Wake on the Sand, if only for completion's sake and to get a clearer picture of the whole story. While it adds little to the overall plot, what it does contribute looks to be extremely significant in the later volumes.

If you enjoyed the Kieli manga this is a MUST READ !! 1 mars 2011

I read and loved the Kieli manga. The manga which consisted of two volumes that covered only the first book of this fantastic series "Kieli: The Dead Sleep in the Wilderness" was one of the best I'd ever read. The artwork and the story were mesmerizing and left me wanting to follow the further adventures of Kieli and Harvey.
This novel picks up right where the manga ends. The writing is rich and exciting. You can feel the emotions of it's characters and you can easily visualize the places they travel. We learn more about both Kieli and Harvey's pasts. This novel was hauntingly beautiful and kept me on the edge of my seat. I couldn't put it down. I imediatly bought the third novel Kieli: Prisoners Bound for Another Planet. And even bought the first one that the manga covered and eagerly await the fourth novel due out 4/26/11
