I'm not even sure this can be called a book... it's too big! Once again I was enchanted and I loved immersing myself in the history and the story. I did get a bit irritated though, because the author likes to use words that probably hasn't been used in centuries. I get that it fits with the times, but if it hadn't been for the built in dictionary of my Kindle, I might have given up on this book. The characters have grown from the first book, and they're more grown-up and serious now... I didn't have much cause to giggle this time around. There was a lot of anxiety though, and a couple of tears. Definitely going to stick to the series and can't wait to start the next one.
