I think I enjoyed this one more then the first one. It took me a few chapters to get caught up in it again but once I did there was no stopping me. Of course the cliff-hanger at the end is going to irritate me till the next one comes out, but I can honestly say I am looking forward to that one. This one definitely had a turn of events that I didn't even think of until about the 70% point and even then I didn't guess all of it. Definitely worth reading if you've read the first one and enjoyed it.
