This was a good follow up to the first in the series. Normally the second book annoys me since it generally doesn't move the plot along quickly or reveal anything of interest. This was different though.
I thought this was well written and the characters were as interesting as before. I was surprised to see Magnus growing on me a bit since he didn't do that for me in the first of the series. Lucia though is still bland and annoying to me.
I am looking forward to continuing the series and seeing where Rhodes takes this. Should be an interesting adventure.
