2 Stars.It is awful. Not as good as the first book. I am about 85% done with this book...and the only reason I haven't given up on it completely is because I somewhat want to know what happens in the end. I couldn't connect with this character in ANY way, and the whole thing just felt rushed. Every single page of this book was just a pure disappointment for me. No heartbeat, no Esprit, just words without feelings.
