This one picks up shortly after the first book but can still be read as a standalone but will be enjoyed much more if readers read the first one first. The characters are well written and intriguing and makes for a story that is hard to put down. The world building is complex and makes for a read that is fun. It is full of action and the reader is never sure just what will happen next. This is a paranormal book that is very different from other paranormal books and stands very well on its own.
I give this one 4-1/2 red roses
