This book was an absolute pleasure to read! Unrealistic and a bit absurd in many ways yes, but the story was addicting and very hard to put down. I typically read non-fiction stories most of the time so it was very rewarding to get completely lost in a good fiction. Lots of action sequences and plenty of fun slasher flick violence. I actually read both books back to back so I clearly had an advantage over some earlier readers.
One of the few stories where the sequel lives up to the original. If there's a third book, and from the ending, there probably will be, it has a lot to live up to and I personally can not wait to see what happens, if anything.
The characters were brought to a whole new level and their personalities really soared throughout this story. This really is an awesome series!
