Much darker and more interesting than the first book, and more complex as well, with multiple stories told from multiple viewpoints. For all of that, relatively little actually happens in this book, and it isn't particularly gripping. But it bodes well for the next book.

Johanna See, now, as much as I loved the first book, this one did not do it for me at all. Too fantastical for me and my (somewhat limited, it seems) imagination. Didn't like it.

Miki Habryn I can understand that reaction, it did seem a little more tentative and experimental, and generally not as much fun. But that might also be middle-book-syndrome (was it originally aimed at a trilogy?), I guess.
