This second installment was just as good as the first. Though the pacing wasn’t as fast as the first, I was still sucked into this crafty world of mystery.
I was glad a love interest appear, though I wasn’t too keen on her at first, she did grow on me and but I’m still not sure about her. I had high hopes for Wendy, but that dream was crushed. In all, I did like the new characters that appeared and I was surprised by the actions of some of the old.
This is a hard world that Lance Erlick has created, but a fascinating one. I loved the world building and the structure. There were clean explanations and I wasn’t left confused as I was in reading the first. Though as I said the pacing was slow, the rhythm was spot on and in truth I liked the ease of this read. It gave me more time to dive deeper into this world that Regina has learned to survive in.
Regina is quickly becoming a fav of mine. Strong, smart and determined. She’s going to be great, no great is the right word. Regina is going to be a legend, and I can’t wait to read more about her.
I highly recommend this book, this series. It has quickly become one of my favs and I can’t wait to dive into the next book. Take a chance you will not be disappointed.
