First things first, screw Laia and Elias. Can the next book just be about Helene and Livvy's revenge, please? I'd much rather read from Livvy's perspective in the next one than from either Elias or Laia's. Their storyline could have been resolved so much faster. I only really enjoyed the Helene chapters and the Tribe stuff. I found them pretty interesting as well. But the two mains? Boring! I gave the first book a pretty high rating but I think if I re-read it now, my opinion would be very different.
