There are a lot of good concepts in this series so far. This book, while still an interesting read, feels more convoluted than Ethereal (Book #1 of the series). It has a tendency to go in circles and falls short of the wonderful storytelling of Ethereal… which flows beautifully.
I am disappointed that this book feels like everything was thrown into it but the kitchen sink. I feel that Moore somehow lost her focus while writing this sequel, and I hope that the rest of the series finds its way back to the tone and flow of Ethereal. I regrettably give this book 3 of 5 stars.
