I liked this book. It was really fun to read, and it was a very good continuation of the series. I don't think it was as good as the first book, but it was overall a very good read. I read it in a very short amount of time (20-30 minutes, I think), and it was a very good thing to read when I was not really feeling like doing anything.
The characters in this were utterly fantastic, as they were in the first volume. I had a very good time seeing who the characters are, and it was very easy to understand who everyone was since the artist made all of the characters look very diverse. I really loved seeing a ton of new characters, and seeing the set up that this book gave for the many future installments.
This, however, was not what I was hoping for. I wanted an epic sequel filled to the brim with action and intrigue, but the story in this seemed very lacking. From the epicness that was the first book, I don't know exactly what i was hoping for, but this was not it. I wanted there to be a lot more story, and for things to actually happen, but it just didn't. That is not to say that I didn't like this book, because I really did, but it was just not what I was hoping for.
