I have to say I was pretty disappointed with the second installment of this trilogy. I wanted so badly to like these characters again and I just couldn't do it. They were all so selfish and whiners that I found myself just wanting the book to end. And then when it did I wanted to trow it across the room. I wasn't impressed at all this time around and it kind of made me sad. I just wanted something else then what was presented and now I have to wait to see if they can redeem themselves in the final part for like a year. Sigh.
