    Personally the second book determines whether or not I'm going to read the whole series. Safe to say after this book I'm going to read the whole series. Just brilliant, better than the first.

    This book is a poor replica of the first, which was intelligent, lyrical, unpredictable and entertaining. The second book has unending scenes where nothing happens to advance the story, and for entire chapters the author simply retreads the same worn ground again and again. The ongoing romance between the lead characters has no arc or growth. It become an irritating and deeply dull plot device. There are some very creative segments here and there, but after 1000 pages the tale just peters out. As far as the writing, while there are spiffy analogies and many sweet and creative fairy tales, the author recklessly ladles out clich├ęd phrases to describe characters' emotions. I can only hope Book 3 recaptures the energy and inventiveness of Book 1.
