This book is hard to review only because I originally decided it would be a DNF but I was at 57% and since I was reading it with a friend and she told me it got better I should try again, I did. However my view wasn’t any different when I continued. Let me explain, I LOVED the first book so much that I got a picture of the last illustration that is in the book hanging on my wall. The author is a wonderful illustrator as well as telling an interesting story but somehow I just wasn’t feeling this book, I was totally heartbroken. The characters just weren’t evolving like I wanted and at times I was so frustrated with how the story was going that it was a bit predictable. Everyone was just so mean to each other and I just wasn’t understand the flow of the story by the time I did finish it I still had questions and it had a bit of a cliff hanger. It was very slow in the beginning and at one point I just kind of gave up on it all. The last 20% was interesting and the illustrations were phenomenal but it didn’t save the story for me.
The story leaves off about were the last one ended but it threw in a bunch of stuff that I wasn’t sure needed to be in the book because once I got closer to the end I realized most of it didn’t really matter at least to me and most was unresolved. I was hoping for more of progress and I felt we are still in the same place the 1st left off. I really do love the characters but the frustration of them was overwhelming and I just didn’t understand why I still have as many questions as I did after the first book.
Since this was almost a DNF I gave it 3 stars. They are characters I was familiar with but the story is what really hurt the story for me. I am hoping the next book wraps up all the ends in this book and finally pulls the story together. I just felt like this book was a set up for the next one and for some reason those kind of book, for me, never seem to work like I hope they would.
