This follow on novel to "The Breeders" series is an improvement over the first novel. Yet,it still has many structural problems and holes. First, the pace of the plot moves way too slow. Second, the plot has way to many answered questions that future novels won't answer. Third, we see a little character development in Riley but the other characters stagnate. For example, French is leading you down one road with Clay (Riley's love interest) and then abruptly does and about-face and sweeps a whole bunch of things under the rug and then moves in a different direction - very jarring.
The truth is, I want to like this series but I can't seem to get there. Yet, I also can't seem to say enough is enough. It's like eating creamed spinach -- it's kind'a good. Mercer-Meyer really needs to pick up the pace of narration. She read s-l-o-w and this is very distracting. The whole thing should be read in 8 hours instead of 10.
This YA novel, I give it a solid sideways thumb.

I want the crazy breeders to have a horrible end. I love the characters & the way they interact. The love they have for each other as a family & the lengths they go to against all odds for each other has really moved me. I can't wait til 4 comes out
