One of my favorite things about the Author's writing style are all the pop culture/ geeky references, and rest assured the second tale comes chalk full of them. This brings me into the story in a way that most fantasy authors don't, by adding some flavor text from my own world, making the story feel more real. Some of the references I was not savvy too, and I appreciated it even more when they found ways to explain the reference right in the story (Example: When jess makes a D&D reference that I didn't get, but luckily for me Michiru asked what she meant and Jess explained it was a D&D reference)
For it being a second book in a series, I highly recommend Curse Bound, as it kept up with same energy and flair of the first book, allowed us some more insight in it's wonderfully unique magic system and keeps the pages turning with a gripping plot, complimented by some excellent and fun characters.

In that way, there are multiple layers of symbolism throughout the story. The magic definitely forms a metaphor for the changes all young people go through when trying to become their adult selves. The main characters are interesting, diverse, unique, well articulated and believable, and continue their entertaining mutual conflicts from the Chaos Bound: Mist Warden 1. In fact, the conflicts give rise to some heart wrenching scenes especially when [REDACTED DUE TO SPOILERS ;-)].
The other layer of symbolism that I enjoyed is the insider/outsider motif - the characters are all outsiders in many ways, whether by race, body type, or social status, and this is heightened by being 'IN" on the dangerous mystery of the strange occurrences in their home town and unable to share it with those who accuse them of stuff.
What is different in book 2 is how fast paced the story is. It seems to jump off the page, and at the end of the book, I realized just how much had happened in only a week or so of story time. The first book maintained its drama by drawing out the story over about four months, giving a sense of frustration from the main characters trying to understand what was happening to them. In Curse Bound, the tension arises as they understand (mostly) what is happening, and are racing to find a solution.
