It has been a while since I'd read the first book in this series, and I don't remember it well, so I can't comment on how this volume compares to the first. I had a bit of difficulty getting into the story early on, nothing serious, but it felt a little slow. Once things got going, however, I was hooked. I really enjoyed the book and I like the way the author wove the various fairy tales she references into the Irish mythology. I think my favorite aspect of this book was the storytelling that several characters did; their storytelling voices rang true and strong and really added to the atmosphere.
