I very much enjoyed this book! It was so wonderful to be transported into another world. I stopped several times to marvel at the imagination of the writer. It was very easy to read pages upon pages without knowing I'd read so many. This being the second in the series,I was glad I'd read the first one; but only for the want of gleaning more of the story, as the author did a great job making this book understandable for those who haven't yet had the pleasure of reading the other. I already have a list of those I know I will be lending this to. And I am very excited to read the next installment. This book was provided by the publisher for review.
