's review

it was amazing

It is basically impossible for the sequel to a novel that completely blew your effing mind to pull the same stunt twice. Despite fully loading this review with five absolutely deserved stars, I must admit this novel did not violate the immutable laws of sequel physics by knocking me out of my shoes again. There is, however, a whole lot of awesome going on here, and at least one "holy s#!t is that actually going down" moment that I will not spoil.
This is a sequel, so read the first book before you read this one. It is also a middle book of a trilogy, so it's a little frustrating when you get to the end of the book and it feels like you only got half a novel. Fret not, this "half-novel" is better than most stand alones you will read in your lifetime.
