Disappointed very disappointed, you took an entire year to write 87801.
Also the book felt rushed, with the character speeding through there roles.
The plots were not well developed, although they were understandable.
Compare to the first book this book would rate less than a Korean manga in length and context. I have read thousands if not tens of thousands of books; and I also know how hard it is to write strong plots while maintaining the strength and integrity of the character; with the proper flow and tempo of mean, intrigue, understanding, relatablity, etc. the series is a strong idea, if you are a new writer I believe you should focus on the two main character and build your plots around them. Because there were so many plots, I was not able to feel that I am experiencing the book or the story to the fullest. The more detail included will help the reader to build the world of the Restoration Series in their minds eye. Reread you first book an you many see the difference.
