Book two gets a bit better
Well, that was certainly the most rapid fire recap of events and exposition from the first book. Seriously, did we need to get all that information again? It was way more repetitive than I like, but thankfully it was only the beginning of the book.
I liked this book much better than the first, mostly because the first book spent more time setting up the world and how things work there. Now that we have all that established, we can get into some serious cozy mystery solving. This mystery also brings us more into the culture of the crafters. We get to learn more about them with the introduction of Geo-crafters and magical charmed objects. Very interesting twists and turns.
There are a couple side plots that keep Darcy and Nick on their toes. A good cozy gives you more than one mystery to solve. I expect at least one of these plots to seep into future books. This also gives us more of the villagers that we loved in the first book. I love the familiars!!
I liked this narration by Coleen Marlo much better than the first. I am still bothered by her weird "o"s, but her pace feels more natural. It could have been a glitch in the upload or the production. She has a very warm quality to her voice that keeps the read flowing. She has a slight note of awe in her voice at times that fits Darcy wonderfully.
I am feeling more invested in the series and definitely curious what will happen next. I am a sucker for a series!
