really liked it
bookshelves: speculative-fiction, japan, 2011
Read from February 08 to 17, 2011

I think the series has grown on me, I am finding the writing in the 2nd book to be much better quality, and my complaint with the last book about detail has been rectified in this book. The pacing is slower than in the first book, though I have found this slowing down to be well compensated by the rise in quality of the prose.
Upto now I don't agree with the general opinion that this book is somehow lesser than the first one, on the contrary it may be better.
After finishing this book one can see that the first book serves to pull in the readers with its fast pace and interesting characters and setting and the second book as is the case with most intermediate books serves to build upon and consolidate the world building and characterization from the first novel,
I will be diving into the third novel directly.
