You know I liked the first book well enough to grab the other one quickly at the library. I was not as thrilled with this one. At least the intimate scenes tended to have a point in the first book--it didn't seem that way in this one. The scenes with conflict in the camp didn't ring very true since few of the new characters seemed well fleshed out. Once the action left the camp, it improved again. The stuff before, though, had put me off. Also, I was disappointed that what was supposed to be two novels has gone off into a series. Perhaps that's why the book didn't seem to be as good since it was mostly a set-up for other books instead of a conclusion.

I will say that some of her observations about prejudice are rather good, but I was overall disappointed with this book compared to the other.
