The second installment was a bit slower than the first book, since it primarily is constructed around a back story. It doesn’t have the sense of suspense and immediacy that the first book had, but it is still a compelling tale that keeps the pages turning until the end. If you read the first story, you will likely be craving the answers and history included in book two.
The writing style and storytelling are exceptional, and there are a lot of layers to the story. Christa Wojo does a masterful job of creating disturbed characters that are remarkably human. Truly a thoughtful, enjoyable read that most readers will enjoy. Can’t wait to see what happens in book three.
