I was very interested to see what the second book in this series would be like: partly because of the age of the author (the author wrote the first book at age 15 and the second book at age 22), and partly because middle books in series often get bogged down in character development and diverging plot lines. Certainly this book was much longer, much slower, and had fewer major events (a significant portion of the book is about the main characters training). However it was also obvious that the author had matured and improved his writing. It was a worthy sequel, and a worthwhile read.
