I was so underwhelmed with the first book that I almost didn’t continue the series. I was disappointed. I expected this fantastic and action-packed book. It fell flat in many ways. I had already bought the box set and I made a pact with somebody that I’d read them. So I did. I’m glad I did. The second book was so much better than the first. I was very impressed. I even found a new favorite character in this one.
There were still places that the book fell flat. I can’t really explain it. I just expected there to be a bit more. Everything was pretty cut and dry. They had a mission to find someone. They succeeded. There wasn’t really much challenge in doing so either. They just set about on their journey and got where they were going. I mean yes, they had to be cautious, but still. I just expected it to be a little more difficult than it was.
This book was narrated by Amy McFadden. She’s one of my favorite narrators of all time. I believe that’s the biggest reason I chose to continue reading the series. If anybody could turn a bland book exciting, it’s her. Well, Sarah Puckett can as well, but I digress. McFadden knows how to pitch her voice to completely enthrall your emotions and make you feel what you’re supposed to at that particular point in the story.
While I didn’t enjoy the first book, this book was very nice. I enjoyed it. I feel like the story is actually picking up and going places. I definitely see more of a personality with Ruby in this one than I did the first. I think we can think Vida for that. She’s so full of personality and energy that she kind of spills over. Either way, I’m glad that I chose to continue the series instead of shelving it.
Thank you for Reading!
