did not like it
Read from August 09 to September 04, 2010

The religious overtones make the book seem familiar though not quite predictable. The plot is paced better than the first in the series, but still drags at times. And the ending was utterly random, as if Kilpatrick decided to just stop writing to save something for the trilogy.
