This is the synopsis from Amazon:

My review: 3 stars

Plot: This book really confused me at first. Being a sequel, I expected the original story to be continued right away. However the first half of the book is about a completely different person and her world. It wasn't until the stories merged that the ending of the first book made sense.

Characters: I like the main character in this one a lot better than the first one. Her character's point of view makes the story much better in this one than other other character's would.

Setting: The setting doesn't change much from the first one, so I don't have much more to say.

Overall: I like this one better than the first one. This one goes more into the mystery of the people and causes you to be more interested in their background. Definitely one to read!
