Book two lacks the punch of book one, in my opinion. But I'm still engrossed in this story.

Book one ends with an horrific revelation that plays out in the first chapters of book two. But eventually the story reaches a point where it drags on, and I was growing tired of the characters and the plot. I think it could have moved more quickly in places. But the final third does move briskly and sets up some intriguing possibilities for where the story goes next.
