There are a lot of surprises in the book that make you want to keep reading. Exciting from beginning to end. Highly recommended. The book takes the characters from the first book, and we get to continue on their journey with them. The reader gets a deeper look and understanding into the character's lives, and what lead them to this point. An exciting continuation! You will definitely want to read this one!
