After reading the first book I was looking forward to reading the second in the series. I read 21% before giving up on it.
While it is set in the same universe;
* None of the original characters have shown up
* There is much more sex, with little reason to be in the book other than to expand the word count
* Religion (Judeo-Christian) is much more dominant
* There seems to be a Deity when there was not in book one
* New supernatural (Angels, Demons) beings have appeared
* It is not a well constructed mystery (the first was)
* There are several different story lines, that have have failed to make their first connection to each other.
Everything I liked about the first book is not in the second. As a stand alone it might be 3 stars, as the second in series it 2 stars might be a bit over rated. I am extremely disappointed to say the least.
