really liked it

I love this book. The second had everything in it that the first did, only it had room to expand. Jayne is by no means an expert. She is still bumbling away through many situations and learning as she goes. If anything, this book has taught her once again how little she does know. I love that they’ve changed the setting to New Orleans. There is so much there to explore between the rich culture of voodoo and the fact that they are still recovering from Hurricane Katrina. It adds a lot of depth, texture and realism to the story. And I love that Ex, Aubrey, and Chogyi Jake are all still at her side. I think it lends needed continuity to the stories. Now I’ll tell you the part that bugged me. This is book 2 of the series. This series is called The Black Sun’s Daughter. And so far at the end of book 2, we have had very little mention of where this comes from or what it means. They did refer to black suns being a type of rider in the first book, and also to the fact that Jayne needs to figure out who she is in book 2, but they have yet to connect the two or explain. I don’t know how long the series is going to be, but I do know there are four books out at present. I just think it’s kind of a long time to wait without any explanation at all. At least give me a little bit of a teaser… I think this book would be easier to understand if you read book 1 first. You could probably pick up from where book 1 left off, but I think there’s a lot of background in the first book that you would miss out on. All in all, I love these books and will continue to devour them as quickly as I can get my hands on them, and I can’t wait to see where Jayne and her team/friends end up next. =D
