This is a sequel to The Glass Books of the Dream Eaters and don't let the beginning of the book convince you otherwise. The book starts where the last one left off, includes the same protagonists and most of the same antagonists as the original struggling over the same thing.

It's delicious in the same way the original was. It has wonderful descriptions. The story is still told from the 3rd person omniscient focused on one of the three protagonists in turn. And there continue to be some interesting mysteries.

That being said, it ends on a cliffhanger. I think it's even more of a cliffhanger than the first book which could have been said to be fairly complete on it's own.

This is the first book I read on Precious (my nook) and I loved it.
