As I mentioned earlier in the thread, I do not think it was necessary to bring in so many familiar characters. Maybe had it just been limited to Scotty and Leah, I would have been okay with it. I see absolutely no reason why so many others needed to be included. This is probably one of the worst examples of Small Universe Syndrome that I've read in recent memory.
That's what CBS asked for - have to fulfil the brief. And I like the mix it ended up with.

I also do not understand at all why the book was broken into two parts.
Other way round - it was two books cut together into one.

What, exactly, was the point of including Rasmussen and Bok? That story element ultimately does not need to be in this book at all
That storyline was always going to be in book 1, though originally it would have probably been new characters in the place of those two, but doing the same thing.
