    1. Originally reviewed at Minnesota Reads.When I met briefly met Pete Hautman last year, I enthusiastically gushed over how much I loved The Obsidian Blade. Looking back, it was one of those embarrassing moments where I talked too fast, too much, and probably came off stalkerish, but trust me, I don’t have the dedication needed to stalk someone. I just thought The Obsidian Blade was one of the most unique things I read last year with great characters, strong world building, and a completely wacky [...]


    2. WOW! I was over-the-top excited when I got the chance to read an arc of this book. The Obsidian Blade left off on a cliffhanger, and I had so many unanswered questions about the intriguing storyline.Right from the get-go, this book had me hooked. The pacing (which was practically my only issue with the first book, having had trouble with the first section being a bit slow) was perfect. It starts right where the first book ends, and is at first narrated from Tucker's point of view. He finds himse [...]


    3. Hautman really captures the essence of all of the issues our current world is facing, and manifests them in a beautifully-crafted futuristic environment that makes the probable seem wholly and frighteningly possible. His views on religion are thought provoking, he makes an interesting case both for and against e-books (a noble feat, in this librarian's eyes), and he creates a dystopian future where society simply can't find a happy medium. It carries on beautifully from the first book, actually [...]


    4. Great book, definitely could not put it down. bought it the day before last, read it all night and finished in the afternoon. would have finished earlier but this thing annoying pest of an institution called school got in the way of a great read, yet again. the book surpasses its previous counterpart in many areas, especially by the beginning not being as slow, like the previous book id recommend it to anyone, although there are many people who are very sensitive to the time travelling books out [...]


    5. The Obsidian Blade is one of the best books I have read in high school. In General, the crazier the plot the more I enjoy the book, and this plot is anything but normal. Typically, I am not a science fiction reader, but this novel may have changed that for me. The idea of time travel simply fascinates me, and the philosophical way in which this book discusses time travel is extremely engaging. The author debates through through the characters how time travel can affect future, present, and past [...]


    6. Even better than the first installment - Tucker discloses the the story of the time traveling diskos to a stranger in a strange land, while we learn the complete background of Lah Lia, who becomes Yar Lia after trials and tribulations. Raised as a Pure Girl to be sacrificed for peace and harmony, she learns survival strategies from the Yar sisters in the convent connected to the palace near the Cydonian Pyramid. Lah Lia knows that her blood moon will arrive soon and she must keep her wits about [...]


    7. If you like action packed books then this is the book for you. I started out so confused because when the story starts the main character is on the ss skate. Then the story goes to lia on a farm working for some people. so if you like action packed book this is for you.


    8. It's been a while since the last time I had to focus that HARD on a book. School's out for the summer, and I was just chill'n, and suddenly having my head swim with all these dates, portals, people, places, things, things-that-didn't-happen-yet, things-yet-to-come, and those things-that-got-altered. Pretty dang confusing, if you ask me.Seriously, I found myself waiting FOREVER for the moment when Tucker would FINALLY find Lia. Like for Pete's sake, I feel like nothing actually progressed much fr [...]


    9. The Cydonian Pyramid is the sequel to the book The Obsidian Blade. It starts off with the glooming image of a pyramid in the distance, the Cydonian Pyramid. It's far into the future and a little girl named Lah Lia has been raised by a family only to be sacrificed in the pyramid. Right when she was about to be sacrificed the parents and her noticed a shadow of a boy in the distance. It was Tucker, he was sent by his agent to save her from this tragedy that was about to happen. The main characters [...]


    10. Summary- This book is the sequel to the, "Obsidian Blade," but instead of what happened to Tucker in his P.O.V ( point of view) it's in Lah Lia P.O.V. The beginning of the book is about Lia and her time as a Pure Girl, who is apart of group called Lah Sept. After sometime a Blood moon came, which a time to sacrifice a Pure Girl, Lah Lia. When Lia was about to be sacrifice until Tucker came out of the disko, that is when Lia took the opportunity to escape in which she did. Lia then finds herself [...]


    11. While the first book of the series was centered around Tucker Feye, the main focus of this book is Lia, a girl raised to be sacrificed but able to escape through a disko when Tucker enters a disko and interrupts her sacrificial ceremony. Even though Lia has escaped from her death, she continues to travel the diskos looking for Tucker, who she has grown to like.Similar to the first book, this book was interesting, but a bit confusing. It involved both Lia and Tucker's perspectives, and they move [...]


    12. This, the second in the series is mostly the same story as book one, The Obsidian Blade, but told from the point of view of Lahlia. There is some plot development here not covered in book one but very little. It was a good experience to see the whole story from another point of view. I have heard that this series will be a trilogy, so I want book 3 to come out soon. But since this book, No. 2, just came out this past Spring, it will probably be a year or more before the 3rd comes out. While I li [...]


    13. I was first exposed to Pete Hautman when a critique partner recommended THE MORTAL NUTS, a Joe Crow mystery that involved the Minnesota State Fair and Texas Hold 'em. Needless to say I was rather surprised to see Peter win the National Book Award for his young adult novel, GODLESS. And now he's switched genres again, with science fiction. The CYDONIAN PYRAMID starts half a millennium in the future, Lah Lia, a Pure Girl has experienced her Blood Moon and is about to be sacrificed and thrown into [...]


    14. Before starting this I reread The Obsidian Blade quickly to remind me of the setup, which was probably a good idea. (The Kindle prices of this and the third book were reduced so I snagged them immediately, and will start The Klaatu Terminus next.I think I missed the paradoxical nature of Bounce the cat on first reading: the cat could not grow older, because he was in a closed loop: if he had grown during his stay with Lia, on the next iteration he would have grown older still and so on. Just lik [...]


    15. The Cydonian Pyramid is about a girl name Lia. She lives in the far future. She is a pure girl and lives a sheltered life. She has never been outside the walls of the place that she lives and gets a shock when she finally does go outside. An experience that she will never forget for as long as she lives. What I liked about the book is the way the author describes the setting and characters at the start of the book. He also does not just focus on one character he jumps from character to character [...]


    16. The Cydonian Pyramid is the second book of Pete Hautman's Klaatu Diskos series. It continues the journeys of Tucker and Lahlia from the first book. We readers discover more of Lahlia's life that the first book doesn't include, and her life in Romelas before she was supposed to be sacrificed. It follows Lahlia's journey through the diskos, after she has escaped and what happened to her that Tucker didn't know about. In the first book, Lahlia has just saved Tucker's life from being killed by Fathe [...]


    17. The Cydonian Pyramid is the sequel to The Obsidian Blade. In this book we get to see things from both Lah Lia's perspective, and from Tucker Feye's perspective as they both travel through time (separately). I liked this book a lot better than the first one. The story telling and writing are much better. The story focuses solely on Tucker and Lia, so we didn't have to deal with the really crappy characters like Father September or Master Gheen. We get to learn a bit more though about the Yars and [...]


    18. Vastly more coherent than the first book, that's for sure.There are basically three conditions under which you might be reading this review, so i'll address them in turn:1) You haven't read the first book (The Obsidian Blade). If so, go read the reviews of that and make your decision. This book will make no sense whatsover if you haven't read Book 1.2) You loved the first book, and just want to make sure this one isn't dreadful. If so, buy it. Buy it now.3) You were intrigued by book 1, but coul [...]


    19. In book one of the Klaatu Diskos, we are introduced to Tucker Feye and we follow his journeys through time as he attempts to find his missing family. In book two, we focus on Lah Lia, the strange girl that Tucker's father brought back to town after going missing the first time. It's always been clear that Lah Lia is not an ordinary girl, but her story adds entirely new dimensions to the Klaatu Diskos world. Born and raised as a sacrifice for the Lah Sept, Lah Lia is scheduled to be sacrificed wh [...]


    20. I was just so disappointed with the beginning of this book that it was too hard to recover from. I wanted it to pick up where book one left off. It was such a climactic ending! But instead, it started quite after that scene and then backed WAY up and essentially retold book one from the perspective of Lalia. Ugh. Tucker was hardly in this book at all until 3/4 of the way through. And it wasn't all that exciting (since I knew all the important scenes from book one) until 1/2 way through. While th [...]


    21. First things first, don't read this without reading The Obsidian Blade before this one. Little will make sense. This is a second volume that really does require knowledge of the first. Second, the Klaatu Diskos books get weirder with each installment. Seriously, I though the first was gonzo, but this just gets more gonzo as it progresses.Third, it's not a bad book and I liked it more than the previous book, but maybe because it doesn't feel like sequel as much as companion piece. There is much m [...]


    22. This second volume in the Klaatu Diskos trilogy alternates between Tucker Feye’s and Lah Lia’s perspectives of the same time period as The Obsidian Blade. It opens with Tucker Feye time traveling through the diskos and landing near a US submarine in the Arctic Circle in 1959 at the height of the Cold War. He tries to explain to the ship’s doctor how he got there but has a lot of difficulty with that because the doctor thinks he is a Soviet Spy. Lah Lia escapes the fate of the Pure Girls in [...]



    23. I enjoyed the first book in this series, but it didn't keep me enraptured as this second one did. Many of the questions that I had from the first title were answered here as the two main characters, Lah Lia and Tucker Feye, race through different times. Since much of the storyline follows Lah Lia, a Pure Girl in some future time period, readers are able to see just how far the world has evolved. When she escapes and travels back in time, eventually finding sanctuary with a kind farm couple, she [...]


    24. This was better than the first book, but not by much. It seems to have run mostly concurrent with book one. It followed Lia's travels more than Tucker's starting at the same point in time (a couple days before she arrived in Hopewell). Following Lia was much easier to comprehend. Where Tucker had no idea what the portals or Klaatu were, she has some background information with her education from the future. I liked finally feeling like someone in this series knew what was happening, instead of j [...]


    25. An excellent followup to The Obsidian Blade. It goes much further into the mystery of the diskos and how the girl LahLia/Yar Lia came to be, both in Tucker's present and in his future.Hautman gets even better at playing with the idea of timelines. Jumping back and forth between the Hopewell of the past, present, future, and far future. And getting to know Lah Lia's perspective brings the narrative into a more cohesive place. Definitely read these back to back, as The Cydonian Pyramid picks up ri [...]


    26. In this second book of the Klaatu Diskos, we learn about the voyages of Lah Lia. She was chosen as a chid to be a pampered Pure Girl and eventually sacrificed to a Disko at the top of a pyramid. Her ceremony is interrupted when a boy, Tucker Feye, makes an appearance. I very much enjoyed Lia's story and the way this book filled in many of the confusing unknows in The Obsidian Blade. Am now looking forward to the third wondering if this will be that rare series with the second book being the best [...]


    27. Wow!! The second book in this series was better than the first! That doesn't happen very often!This book starts off with Tucker Fey telling his incredible story to a submarine captain in 1959 at the North Pole. Then it breaks off to Lia's perception of the events that transpired in the first book. It answered many questions that may have been left after reading reading the first book. That's not to say that this one didn't leave you with questions as well. I look forward to the next installment [...]


    28. Again, I waited a long time to get to this second book in the series. It was worth the wait and kindly recapped many of the pertinent details during the course of the story so I wasn't too lost. This is such an imaginative world and storyline. I enjoy how it moves from Tucker to Lia but still shares the narrative. It has all the typical teen dystopia elements but brings a religious consideration that most stay far away from. I really enjoyed it and recommended it to my son.


    29. The first half of the book is primarily the same story as the first book, but from the perspective of Lah Lia, but the second half made it worth sloughing through the first half. With the resolution, though, there's not much of a cliff-hanger for anticipation of the 3rd book in the series. However, the good writing and interesting ideas are at a high enough level to encourage the reader to want to read the third.
