While I liked this book, I did not like it as much as the first. It is also one of the ones that is next to impossible for me to review without giving spoilers. What I can say-- there was always plenty of action, things to question as well as questions being answered. Ethan is still very likeable, and I relate to him and his voice. Link is around still and funny and easy going as ever. We see Amma a lot and learn more about her and her abilities, which is a very good thing in my opinion. One of the things that I did not like is Lena's choices. While I understand some of her reasoning- still doesn't mean that I like it. I didn't see much of the storyline coming, and I did not expect the changes that occurred. I am eager to get my hands on the next one.
