Wow. Mind Blown.

I read this book only when I was at home. You see, I read even when I'm in a public vehicle, but for this book? Nope. I didn't.

This second book is even darker than the first, and Daniel Kirk has created a lot of compelling and frightening characters... by letting us see into the villains' minds, they become much more fleshed out. I can't wait for the conclusion of this wonderful series!
