There is simply no way to do any kind of coherent review on this until the third (and *better* be final) book is out. Skin Hunger alternated between the two POVs separated by hundreds of years, and it was a fascinating (if occasionally frustrating, being switched out of one story to another so frequently) narrative device. Sacred Scars continues that, but brings the stories closer and closer in time, from about half-way through. While keeping the same characters. It got very gruelling - especially Haph's story - and I'd really almost got to the point of thinking I'd had all I could take of the bleakness - until Sadima's story started to change. But explaining what that means would be spoiler - not to mention difficult, as I've NO idea where the third book will go.
