I Give This Book 4 Stars!
I was not extremely impressed with the first book in the series. But, since I was left hanging, I felt the need to continue on. Again, I'm glad I did for the second in the series was well worth it! The story line isn't as choppy this time around. I liked the character development. Schuyler makes some interesting discoveries, both about herself and about those around her. She's different from everyone else in the story, and I think that is what makes her interesting. I see the love triangle growing, which will let for more intrigue in future books. Thankfully, I have Revelations waiting for me at the library, so I don't have to wait too much longer to read the next installment!
