I think this was a great follow up to the first book.

It definitely has a lot more weight than the first book, because it covers having to cross over to the other side to try and save Anna.

One thing I like about this book is that it jumps straight to the story. There isn't a lot of unneccessary introductions and so you really get drawn in immediately. However, in the beginning it did develop a little slow. There was a lot of repetition with Cas' hallucinations or visions (whatever you want to call them) of Anna.

The characters were also a little less memorable in this book. I guess they were just really well-developed in the first book so there wasn't really much going for them now.

One thing I'm not really happy about is how the author saves all the action in the last few chapters. I mean literally almost everything happens right at the 2nd-to-the-last chapter. That doesn't leave much time for the book to get a proper closure. I'm still left a little hanging the way I was with the first book. :(

But overall, I think Blake did a great job with this. She definitely could have done a little more to make this one as good as the previous book, though. But still one of my favorites.
