Book 2

Sticking with this series is worth it. While I found the first book in the series a tad slow and lacking in description of the universe, the pacing in the second book is excellent and the storyline grows more detailed. I was craving information about the technology of the world, about the motivation of some of the secondary characters, and about the direction of Vigo and Violet's relationship. I enjoyed this second installment more than the first.

Not really meant for the intelligent reader...

Although containing okay action scenes, you can probably zone out for 80% of this book. This sequel was a huge let down. I felt it was completely different from the first book. Reasons being:

1.) The writing was absolutely atrocious. Just listening to it had me cringing so bad I might as well have started cramping.

"I jumped, landing on the landing." Or "My eyes looked at him hungrily." Good God.

2.) I didn't even recognize Viggo. I fell in love with his quiet and resevered character in the first book, but in the second, his thought process started to annoy me halfway through. At some points, I admired his determination, and then at others, he sounded completely naive.

To be honest, he sounded a lot like a male character that a female writer envisioned a perfect man should be. Ughhhh I wanted to love his and Violet's relationship, but my eyes hurt from rolling so much.

3.) Violet seemed so much more emotional in this sequel.

4.) Every decision that either Violet or Viggo made was second-guessed and waaaay over-analyzed. It got to the point where I wondered when they would be scared to drink water because it had a hundred ways of killing them.

The ending to the FIRST book redeemed itself for me and had me desperately needing to start this sequel. I was left disappointed. *Sigh*

The plot was more predictable than I had expected, and the horrendous writing sadly washed out the romance for me. I'm curious on how the character relationships turn out (maybe if I read spoilers instead), but it's just not enough to encourage me to spend any more money on this series.
