It was just ok. I would not normally continue the series, except that I picked up the second book at a library book sale. It does, however, explain why the second book was only 50 cents (hardcover)!
It was hard to figure out where the story was going for most of the book and I can't say that I'm really all that attached to any of the characters. If it wasn't such a short book, I doubt that I would have finished it.
