My Thoughts

For me this book was an interesting enough read but possibly a bit too much of a 'second book in a series' book for me to really get as much as I would have liked for it.

To start off what I enjoyed about it.

I loved the book had a 'so far in the series' page. I read so many series that I struggle to keep up with all the ones I'm part way through and I loved that this book did this as it meant I go go back into the series without too much problem about who was who and why they were doing what they meant and I definitely think it helped my enjoyment of the book a lot.

I liked that it was fast paced all the way through making it a very quick read for me.

However as I said I did struggle with some parts of this book. As it was the second book in the series I felt very much despite the fast pace that nothing much happened. In fairness to say nothing much happened is probably unfair. What I meant to say is that nothing really got resolved and I hate being left hanging on too much between books in a series simply because in the year or so I'm waiting for the next book I'll forget all the whys and wherefores and then won't be excited for the next book any more.

Certainly a series with promise and I do thoroughly enjoy the writing style but final judgement is out until I can get my hands on the last instalment.
