Note: This is a spoiler free book review!
I’d read and loved the first book in the series so I was really looking forward to getting my hands on this one. There was so many plot elements hinting for future books that it left me salivating.
The writing is simple and straight forward which I prefer. I like the description, but I don’t like it when it’s flowery and too metaphorical with lots of subtext. It’s easy to visualize what’s mentioned.
This is where I was let down a little. The plot felt very narrow and there wasn’t much happening besides the main plot, unlike the first book which weaved little extras in brilliantly. It was very isolated too, taking place all in one place. I also felt that hints about the mysteries could have been weaved in better.
There were some potentially brilliant characters in this, but I felt I didn’t get the chance to get to know them. It didn’t go very in-depth which made me struggle to care for them. They read like one book characters. Whereas characters we know from the previous book were a bit better.
It’s not as good as the first one, but I still enjoyed it. I catch myself thinking about the regular cast and thinking up what paths they’ll take. Who I like, who I don’t like and what I want to see happen. I know that’s how I’m hooked. It was a good quick read and I can’t wait to read the next one.
