A solid follow-up to its predecessor, focusing on the most interesting character. Another wild ride set in a very well-realized, detailed, and warped setting. There were maybe two coincidences I had a bit of trouble getting past.
As in the first book, we're only given hints of a broader scope. Since the broader scope is actually the most interesting part of the series for me, the overall length of the series will probably determine whether I make it all the way to the end.
