I bought this book after being drawn in by the cover and short description. I then realised that it was part of a series so I read the first book, "Nature Abhors a Vacuum" (which was being offered for free) before starting this one. The first book in the series was okay for a free book, but not something I would want to spend money on.
I was pleasantly surprised by the increase in quality for this second book. The writing was more polished, the characters more varied, and the plot more intriguing. All in all I quite enjoyed this book and am glad I came across it.
