Convince us to read the book: I thought this was a very good second book in a series. It did everything a second book in a series should do. This book enhanced the characters. The book stayed true to the plot with surprising twists and turns.  But the book itself raised a lot of questions and answered few. Plus the book left off on a mini cliff hanger to engage the readers to pick up the third book. I kept reading this book because it was well written.
Memorable or Forgettable: I thought this book was more on the forgettable side (not by much). I think this way because the book has no stand alone traits. Everything in this book is designed to push the plot along. To be memorable for a helper book in a series, the book must have a tragic event. Like one of the main secondary characters dying. Or something that almost turns the plot upside down but manages to work with the series.
Cover: The cover of this book is pretty plain. The cover has an almost plain green background. The title of the book is surrounded by lines.
Age Range: 14 through 17
Quality: 4Q Better than most
Popularity: 4P Broad general teen appeal
Additional Comments: How the author ends this series will determine how much I like the two previous books.
