Rated 4 out of 5 by from Fast and Fun This book did not have a lot of the same problematic elements that the first one had, including mass character death, suffering for the sake of it, the awkwardness of the girl-disguised-as-boy-has-the-hots-for-boys-but-they-know-she's-a-girl-and-have-the-hots-for-her-too trope, or the little lust triangle. Although, the reason that these elements were ostensibly missing might just have been because there was no room. This book, clocking in as a lightweight at less than 300 pages, included only the events of about 48 hours and as a result was fast, punchy, and not super satisfying. It will be really interesting to see how Larson ties up the large bouquet of loose ends she's left herself with without having the final book be a monster. All that said, it was still a really fun book, with adventure and romance abounding and a very determined heroine. I had probably more fun than the first time around, probably because it was so compact and fast-paced, as I never got a break to think about the stuff I didn't like.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great second book I had been looking forward to reading this book, since I picked up the first one. The main character Alexa or "Alex" as she was known for most of the first book, really stood out as a strong female character. The whole story really tied in very nicely with the first book. I am excited to read the next one.
