My Thoughts - Story

Normally I find the second book in a trilogy a bit slow and overdone after the build up from the first book with introductions and the “newness” of it….but….with Ms. Kagawa, she has outdone herself with creating a 2nd book as good as or better than the first…which makes me wonder and anticipate what she is going to do with the 3rd book!

I definitely have a thing now for Japanese mythology and would love to read more information about it but I don’t think anyone can get the development of these characters as good as Ms. Kagawa has done. She has outdone herself with her imagination on the creation of these characters.

Cliffhanger…wow – how to leave us hanging in the middle of a momentous event. UGH!!
