Ugh this book. My favorite out of all three! It took me a few hours to finish this one, never putting it down because I was so addicted. Once again, it's only downfall was the slow beginning, but all is forgiven once reading the rest of the book. There are so many twists and turns with so much action, it kept me reading until I couldn't anymore. Being the sequel to the amazing first book, I must admit I was highly surprised at the turn it took, as well as how much better it was! An amazing sequel that's for sure. My only regret was not picking up this book sooner. From the moment I finished, I knew, this was my new favorite book, and it was one I would read multiple times throughout my life. 5/5 stars for it's sheer amazingness that blew me away.
