It's kind of closer to three and a half stars really, but it was better than the first. Good action and a much better love interest in Dimitri. I saw a lot of the "twists" coming and it was too...flowery and prosey in a lot of areas. I kept finding myself saying, "YES I know, get on with it!" I still think a lot of things are unexplained and confusing. I mean WTF Altus? Where did that come from? I think there should've been some explaining from the society in the beginning. Apparently Lia and Sonia got some information yet the reader did not. Again it was made to feel as if you were dropped in a little too far along.

Still, an excellent story, a unique take. Good characters. I just wish there was more of the good. A great climax at the end and in general the whole ending was really well done. Enough of a cliff hanger to keep you invested, but definitely enough closure to keep you at peace.
