This picks up right after the ending of the last book. I was glad, since I wanted to know more about Tamra and what was happening with her. I really didn't see this happening at the end of the first book! I inhaled this book so fast, leaving little time to think of anything else.
Before, I mentioned I wasn't so sure about the Romeo and Juliet or the love triangle story line. After this one, I'm still not so sure. I am now fully Team Cassian, but I have a feeling I'm not on the winning team. I don't know what it is, I might feel a little better about it if both of them weren't falling for Jacinda, but as it stands, I really do hope it's resolved soon and doesn't get left standing for the duration of the series.
This had more action in it than the first and I was happy to see a change of pace. There seems to be a lot that goes down in this book and it left me aching to get my hands on the third book. I'm curious to know if Sophie Jordan has the series planned out or if she's going off of a book by book basis. The way she leaves these books is criminal! I wanted to cry because the third wasn't within arms reach.
Jacinda has been fun to get to know. I don't feel as connected to her or as invested as I have some other characters, but I'm still wanting to know just how it all ends, who she chooses and what her fate will be. She's a strong character, wanting to do the right thing, even if it means risking her own life. Very admirable.
I'm glad I finally started this series. I'm even more glad to have started it when the second had just come out. I wasn't fortunate enough to wait for the third and I will be on pins and needles until I can get my hands on the next. This is definitely a series that everyone should read.
