Katie asked:

Do you have to have read the first book in order for this one to make sense?

Georgia I don't think so... I didn't and didn't even know it was part of a series until I added it as read!
Michele I agree with Georgia. I just finished it and only now realize it was a series. Reading the first may enhance the characters for you, but it is not necessary.
Michael Yes you should, I feel it would make the 2 book (Forge) a much more better book.
Caroline No, not really. We read this one for school without reading the first one, and it made perfect sense.
Ann Levine Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes. Yes.
Parker It helps greatly if you read Chains first.
