This was ok. I started skimming a little after the halfway point. The character development was too static, and Perry and Aria spent a large part of the book watching other people make active decisions rather than engaging in any meaningful choices themselves. Having two separate narratives worked in the previous book because you could see how each of them grew as they played off of each other. In this book, with the two of them separated for most of the book, it just created this "Meanwhile, back at the ranch..." kind of thing. Perry's section was less interesting than Aria's as he struggled to keep his tribe together after some infighting resulting primarily from her presence among them. Aria set off with their friend Roar to find Perry's absent sister in what amounted to a disastrous turn of events.

The pacing wasn't terribly bad, but I get tired of plot development with little character development. Draggin characters and dragging story made for a typically brittle part two in a trilogy.
