I can't say enough great things about this book. The problems I had with the pacing of the first book were long gone in this one. Even in the "slower" parts of this book I was still on the edge of my seat dying to find out what would happen next. Every single character grew so much and I can't think of any of the main characters that I don't love now. So much is set up for the future books I cannot WAIT for the next book, ahhh!
