The second book picks up nicely from the first and continues the story with only a few minor issues. The pacing was a bit slow at first but picks up the pace and keeps the flow of the plot moving along at a good rate. We get to see the main characters develop a bit more with some added angst and drama. While not all readers might agree with choices made, it makes sense for that character. There is a section that feels like it was added as an afterthought and really could be removed without affecting this story so far, but then there may be something in the next book that couldn’t happen without this part. One of those wait and see things. Even with these issues it’s still a very enjoyable read and well worth the purchase. A free copy of this book was provided by the author in exchange for an honest unbiased review. I purchased this after reading it to help support an author I’d like to see continue writing. Great authors deserve readers support.
