Not quite as good as the first book, but still worth reading. I think forming a series out of it somewhat lessons the impact of the story. One of my favorate things about the first book was that it said that there were only a handful of werewolves in the world. There are so many supernatural stories that imply that there are hundreds or thousands of Vampires or werewolves or whatever, so much that they have their own complex societies. But to propose that there were only a few werewolves denounces all that, and I found it very refreshing.
But the second book befuddles that by introducing vampires, witches, demons and sorcorers; with a complex society of supernatural creatures. Ug! But, setting aside all that, the book is quite good. It maintains the same level of intensity and the characters are just as well developed. The plot was a little cliche, but it was all right. It kept my interest and left me waiting for the next book. Which is all that can be expected from a sequel.
