It does contain spoilers, of course for the first book, since things that are revealed in the first are the background for the second. That said, it would be like reading a prequel about a character you already love where you find out more of her background. I imagine it would be delightful to read them in the opposite order.(less)

(A BTW: I got this book in a Goodreads Giveaway.)
Anyway, I just finished reading this book. Probably because of this, I'm not quite sure what to write. (Maybe a few days or weeks will provide me with some clarity, something to say.) All I can say is that this was interesting. Very interesting. (view spoiler) However, this boo

I received this book in exchange for an honest review.

I have not read the first book, so I was quite lost when I first started reading. The book is short, and while not action packed, it ended with a bang which I found satisfying. I'm not sure if I will go back and read the first, but I will pick up the next one.

Page-turning plot, full of lyrical passages. Mills maintains a good, steady pace and brings the reader along with her characters in this tour of the Bay Area. Make sure to read thes ein sequence for the full effect!

Recommends it for: anyone.
This is the second book about the protagonist, Ame. The first was Grand Theft Life. I fell in love with Ame in the first book and had been waiting impatiently to find out what had been going on with her. Ame is not human, but is a member of a human looking race that preys on us. It seems almost like vampirism, with some of the same mental abilities, except they feed on our fear instead of our blood. The book is set in the San Francisco Bay area, mostly in Oakland, and is wonderful. The cast of ...more

I was a little lost a the beginning since I didn't read the first book, other than that, I really enjoyed this book. I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys urban fantasy novels. The author has a unique style that was a nice change of pace from other fantasy authors.

Although the rather disconnected way the story was written kept throwing me off, this book was definitely interesting. In a lot of ways it felt like I was ready a bunch of short scenes and character development being jotted down for an upcoming book instead of coherent chapters, however the cliffhanger at the end still left me wanting to read on and wishing I could keep on reading.

I love this book. It is easy to read because of the flow of the words. The characters are very interesting and complex. The end is mysterious, and I can't wait the third part to see what will happen next. ...more

I could not get past the second chapter, where Ame and her funky style left me cold.

Disclaimer: I won this book on Goodreads.

This story is a drama with some fantasy elements. I may have been more into the story if I had been able to find book 1 and read it first. (I tried, but my library says the author does not exist.) The characters (except for Malafide) current situations were well-described. I just know nothing of their backstories. I have no idea how they came to be energy-suckers or living in Oakland. I wish the main character would have taken a stand on the fate of her v

(Note that 4 stars is good.)

Maze is the sequel to Daughter of Darkness. Maze is written in the same fast, powerful style. Ame, the main person from Daughter of Darkness, gives the reader her look on life, humans (because she is different) and what they do to each other. Her life hasn't been easy and in book two things have changed for Ame, but not always for the better.

Join Ame in the next stage in her life. Learn about the way she looks at everything and the ways in which she tries to help othe

I received this book through a goodreads give away in exchange for an honest review.

This was a very difficult book for me to complete. I feel pretty much the same as I did about the first one. The concept is good but there is something missing. Things just seem to happen and are never fully explained. The flashback scenes are a little confusing as you are never really told when they go back to the current time.
I read the first one and then this one but I will most likely not be picking up the
