DNF @ 35%

I just couldn't force myself to read anymore. Where the first one allowed us to learn the entire story at once and really feel like we were involved because of the second person tense, this book scrapped all that in favour of purple prose, horrible characters, and a huge lapse in time while knowing the "end" which takes away all the intrigue and mystery. I may try again but probably not.
