This book was just as good as the first one, if not better. The world is greatly expanded in this one and the story progresses in an unpredictable, but wonderful way. I really enjoy where the action is going and the way the world is coming together. I really hope that some of the big questions in the world will be answered at the end of the last book, but I fully expect there to be a huge lingering question at the end of the series with just a small part of the curtain pulled back. I don’t expect all the answers, but a few of them would be nice. I expect no big resolution.
