Marco reviewed on on April 15, 2019

It is easy to disregard 5-star reviews as biased, yet it strikes me as the only fair score for this book. Not only is there a wonderful continuity between the two books in terms of the characters' mental journey, the author also manages to introduce the people, setting and situation in a very pleasant way for those who continue reading after volume one as well as any readers new to the series who did not read the first book. The book is once again a more or less self-contained story for those who would like to read it as such.

The story starts out at a point that many less-gifted writers would turn into either a boring enumeration of facts or take to a way-too-hasty conclusion, making the reader lose touch with the main character. Ms. Rener manages to make the story flow beautifully and naturally, though. The element of superpowers is elaborated upon and interesting new ideas are explored - and the backgrounds of the main characters are also shown in more detail. We get to know the characters and what makes them tick, so we can sympathize.

It is hard to say much about this book without spoiling any of it for the reader. I can only add that the writing style is, in my opinion, fast-paced and only offering just the right amount of detail in its descriptions to help you create a proper mental image, without dictating the details for your mind's eye.

This book takes us on an adventure in the world we all know, yet we know nothing about.
