I enjoyed this one, but not as much as the first book. First, what I didn't like. Wasn't so much a fan if the constant action I this one. Felt like to much.Also frustrated with Ellie for awhile about flippant way she seemed to regard the safety of those she loved although I guess she had to learn the lesson hard way and by the end, I saw so much growth and change in her. There were a couple of secondary characters that I enjoyed. Marcus was one of them. He made me smile. Also, Her conversations with Nathaniel were a bright spot. Loved the romance. This was something that did not change. I fawn over Will and he was as amazing and dedicated as I remembered from the first. I will def be reading the 3rd soon, in fact, already on the wait list from the library, because I was left hanging, and I have to know what is going to happen. Bottom Line: Good second book with a few issues.
