I was expecting book 2 to merely progress the tale in a more or less linear fashion but was curiously surprised to find that Sonja's ability to bring back her dead mother from the spirit world was rather novel and, therefore, interesting. I particularly enjoyed the exploration of what such an ability would have on those who were exposed to it and the ramifications of such an event.
Clearly, Sonja is a tortured soul who committed cruel and murderous acts to attain her goal to bring back her once ever-loving mother, the only person who had truly loved her, but we find that she is not as two-dimensional a character as had been implied in book 1. This is also true for other characters as we find out during the unfolding of the story.
The plot arc involving Effy and Alex also has shades of "Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind" to it and is seemingly working up to be a very heartfelt, traumatic and poignant conclusion.
Kudos to the writer for breaking what I feared would be a predictable follow-on and for the narrator who gave realism to these characters and their personalities.
Onto book 3...

It was a little slow and boring. The narration got better. Not much to say. It was alright but I will not be continuing this series.
