The storyline line in this book is faultless, it's unique and interesting.
I will say though that I felt this second book could have been condensed down to a shorter time. I lost interest at about 70% even though there was a lot going on and secrets were being unfolded. But for whatever reason I can't quite name it but for me I just lost the enthusiasm to finish this book. I pushed through until 90% and then I actually called it quits. I know I know, why didn't I just finish it but even though the story was interesting I just couldn't push myself to finish something I wasn't enjoying anymore.
Saying all this, I definitely think that I am a fluke because my friends loved this series. I loved book 1 and until 70% of this book J loved it to, I just couldn't get over the line.
Not to the fault of Aster at all and I'll definitely be reading more of her books.
