Read from January 19 to 24, 2011

Unsurprisingly, this was just as hard to put down as the first in the trilogy, and I'm so glad I waited this long to read them because the cliffhanger ending here is just mean. I feel bad for the people who read these as they were published and had to sit around wondering how it's all really going to clear up.

Once again, the translation is the weak point, but the characters and story again make up for it by far. All of the crazy twists and turns the plot took were fun and kept me guessing, and I especially loved the details of Lisbeth's past and origins that were pulled in.
