This was another great installment in this trilogy. For some reason, these books just fly by so fast. I had two hours yesterday morning before work and managed to read almost half of the book in that time. Same with the first book in the trilogy. I guess that sounds average, but i read super slow and usually get distracted after 15 minutes. I think this is because of how interesting the story is and how fast the pacing is. There isn’t much in the story that gets boring. Every scene has a purpose and i think that keeps me moving along pretty fast.
The characters in this second book are awesome. Some of the characters from book one have not returned but some have and there are many new characters. For our main characters, i think they all grew a lot in book two. There are a few instances with each character that i recognized as being much more mature than book one. Both books span about a year a piece, so the end of book two is roughly two years after the start of book 1 & i really think you can tell that by the growth in each character.
The story line continues from right after book one. I remember thinking in book one that the story maybe be leading to something particular and i was correct, sort of. It definitely had more surprises than i expected and some things were just a shock…like the roommate. From the story in this book and the ending, i think i know what the last book holds, and i’m super excited to check it out later this month.
