    This book was a hot mess. Neither the plot nor the characters received the time or attention that they needed. There were too many parts that would have been cool on their own(view spoiler)[: Humans interfacing with computers? Cool! Aliens whose "written" language is a colorful fireworks show? Intriguing! An inter-species extraterrestrial conflicts that threatens Earth? I'm listening... Aliens that have engineered a virus which induces infertility over time? Tell me more! (hide spoiler)] .

An inter-species extraterrestrial conflicts that threatens Earth? I'm listening... Aliens that have engineered a virus which induces infertility over time? Tell me more! (hide spoiler)] . I thought Kaczynski actually did a decent job creating intelligent species that were somewhat different from humans. The Vrag were really interesting! I would have enjoyed seeing more world-building. Really, that's the problem with the plot: there's not enough contextual infrastructure to fully support it. The points that I was hoping would be further addressed and more deeply explored in this book were not. I wanted to see Cassie explore her asexuality more - but instead her sexuality remained superficial and insignificant (which is completely fine, but if you're going to take the time to explicitly say that Cass is asexual, I'd expect you to spend a little more time exploring what that actually means and how that might more fully affect her character). This book really suffers from superficial diversity all around. Cass is asexual, but it's barely explored beyond a cursory, "oh, you might be asexual" remark after she gets flustered by the mention of sex. Cass is a bi-racial, Indian American woman, but these components of her identity never go beyond her last name (Gupta) and a shallow depiction of her Indian grandmother. There are a few other sprinkled in mentions of Cass being a POC, but they were insubstantial. Really, she could have been any race or ethnicity and it would have no effect on the story. I guess this is fine, but I still wanted more. Let's get more representation that has substance and weight! All of these characters suffer from this superficial treatment. Mitsuko is Japanese, but that has no bearing on her character beyond one moment where she reads the Japanese news. Hanna is German (am I remembering that correctly? I just know that she's from somewhere in Northern Europe).... no relevancy to her character. Emilio is latino. Again, no relevancy (plus he gets criminally little air time in book two). And Luka is ~kinda~ Georgian, though I'll excuse the lack of rep since he's technically an alien. But still. He supposedly spent time growing up in Georgia and learned about the culture to more authentically play the role of human. I'm not saying that the lack of depth in these characters is wrong, just that I wanted more. If you're looking for a YA scifi with diverse representation that actually impacts the characters, sadly this series will only let you down. Going beyond the impact of ethnic identity on these characters, aside from Cassie, no one really had any character depth. Luka was two-dimensional in Dare Mighty Things and he remained two-dimensional in One Giant Leap. For being such an important and central character (not to mention, Cassie's love interest) he was about as interesting as a clump of dirt on the side of the road. And he had the personality to match. In fact, he became even less interesting in this book than the previous one. How is that possible?? Last complaint: The resolution was too easily won. (view spoiler)[Bada-boom, bada-bing. Cass and Hanna defeat Skyfall with their miiiiinds~~ OOooOOoOooOOOOoooOo~~ spooky. The real hero is Godmother, who gets the shortest end of the stick ever. Tortured for years. Unjustly persecuted. Alone in the universe. Just looking out for her babies. She sacrifices her life so that her genocidal enemies and humans can live. Criminally unfair. She deserved better! (hide spoiler)] All in all, a disappointment :( YA needs more inter-galactic scifi, because I keep being disappointed when all I want is a decent story about teenagers in space with aliens.

    Torn between a 3 or 4 star rating. Overall this series was such a nice read. I loved the setting of space and the impending doom that the characters attempt to escape.

    3.5 Stars - After the first book was a total success with me, I already knew it was gonna be hard for the sequel to live up to that. Sadly, it didn’t work out completely. There were parts I really enjoyed, but overall the plot was a bit too much all over the place for me and the really awesome things that I liked about the first in this series (the characters, the tension, the plot twist) fell a little short here. It was a solid continuation of the story, it just didn’t excite me as much as the 3.5 Stars - After the first book was a total success with me, I already knew it was gonna be hard for the sequel to live up to that.

    Nice sequel to Dare Mighty Things. The action and plot twists make for a fast and engrossing read. By the end, readers will be shaking their heads over which race was the villain and which was the victim. My only comment of a critical nature is that the ending was a bit too long, but that's a very minor point.

    I want more books like this! I highly recommend this fast-paced and exciting sequel to Dare Mighty Things. This book concludes Cassie’s journey to the stars and beyond. Our favorite characters from DMT are joined by some new characters and new places to bring the story to an exciting conclusion.

    While I am glad I read this second book to Dare Mighty Things, I found it disappointing. The character relationship and story building was more interesting in the first and was a bit more scattered and undeveloped in the second.

    aaaaa. I wanted to like this. I really did. unfortunately, this overstuffed story struggled along the ENTIRE way and I’m really sad about it since I championed the first book so hard. It’s a no from me!!

    Such a great book, I really enjoyed the shift in genre, a little bit, because the first one was a competition to go to space, and this book is actually in space and aliens and such! Such a great read, and I loved how things came together!

    I got to read an early version of ONE GIANT LEAP, and it's an exciting, riveting, and sometimes mesmerizing follow-up to DARE MIGHTY THINGS! Loved it!

    3.5* Enjoyed it for the most part, but unfortunately it was somewhat disappointing and predictable. Especially compared to the first book, which was phenomenal.

    I absolutely loved this book and thought it did an incredible job of wrapping up the duology but also giving readers an entirely different atmosphere than the first book. Heather throws us into a whirlwind of a space adventure making the reader question whose side they should be on, what are the limits and faults of humanity, and what to do in the existence of a whole new race. If you want a sci-fi novel that will hook you from start to finish, pick up Dare Mighty Things and then read One Giant I absolutely loved this book and thought it did an incredible job of wrapping up the duology but also giving readers an entirely different atmosphere than the first book.

    Book two of the Dare Mighty Things trilogy does not disappoint. Questions I had about the aliens' abilities are neatly answered toward the last half of the story.
