My rating: 2/5 stars
This is the second book in a series, and a bit of a let down for me. What makes a book good is really subjective, though, so you if you liked the first book, you might enjoy this one too!
But for me, I found the whole thing fell a little flat. The quality of the prose slipped, and the characters started to lose their individual voices. It was hard to stay invested in the plot when I felt my connection to the characters slipping.
Also, and again, this is very subjective, the romantic subplot reared its ugly head, and I just didn’t feel it.
All that being said, I want to emphasize that my lack of interest in the book doesn’t mean it’s terrible. It just didn’t grab me like the first one did.
