Read from June 19 to 23, 2011

Still good, but not as good. The characters that I liked in the first book are the same characters here, but some of the supporting cast is just...odd. The love interests in particular just sort of pop up out of nowhere. Kelly has some history, at least, but Hrriss is literally just "Mom wants me to find a mate, I'll go out and find one, ok, that one" and it's settled. I get the cultural differences she's trying to portray, but it just feels awkward.

The real problem though is that the book is a procedural for the most part, a mystery and a trial, and she, and by extension the characters, miss a lot of details that are obvious or that I questioned long before the characters did, if ever. This leaves the ultimate resolution less than satisfying. I don't hate it, but it got frustrating to read at times.
