it was ok

While I enjoyed the first novel in this series, this was a let down. I felt that Shan was rewriting some of the mythology that he set out in the first novel just to squeeze in specific storylines and scenes. The characters were uninteresting and I didn't have compassion for (m)any of them. The political machinations were sophomoric and, again, unengaging. By the end of the novel, I just didn't care what happened to any of the characters or the city.
