Quick thoughts:
Very much like the first book. Starts pretty much were book 1 leaves off so I didn't feel like I was missing anything.

Darina is still the same, still trying to convince the people in her life that there isn't anything wrong with her. I love being in her head. I love how dedicated she is to helping the Beautiful Dead and how crazy her life is.

We get a little more back story on the BD overlord, Hunter which I really enjoyed. We also get Arizona's complete story. I didn't much like her in the first book but after seeing how her life really was and how her death really happened - I had a change of heart.

A little too much like the first book maybe. The same scenarios are played out, the same tensions and strife between characters are there. It was a little slow going for me in the beginning.

Final thoughts:
After reading book 1, I knew I needed to finish out this series. I very much enjoyed Arizona's tale and I can't wait for the next.
