I was not in love with the first book, but I was happy to have stayed with the series. Enhanced the world and fleshed out the characters better than the first book. This was easier to like because the story flowed better. It has a very old fantasy feel while still being set in the present.
I listened to the audiobook narrated by Meghan Lewis, who does a fantastic job. She has a terrific pace that keeps the book moving. One of the highlights of this book are the narrators skillful accents. I really enjoyed her work and would love to hear more reads from her.
