I received a free Kindle copy of this book courtesy of Net Galley and Random House – Ballentine, the publisher. It was with the understanding that I would post a review on Net Galley, Goodreads, Amazon, Barnes and Noble and my review blog. I also posted it to my Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Google Plus pages.
I requested this book because the first in the series, Lightless, was painful to read and I was hoping that the author did better with the second book in the series.
The best that I can say is that the author did make some progress over the first book in the series. This one at least was a little engaging where the first one was not at all. The organization in this book was also much better than the first one, but the author still needs a lot of work to make the flow approach that of better know authors of this genre.
While this book can be somewhat of a stand alone novel, it is very helpful if you slog your way through the first one as it will increase your understanding of the main character and the plot line.
