I knew this book was going to be good when I bought it, because Frost Arch was a-mah-zing. I buy a lot of eBooks now that I have my Kindle Fire, and I'd say 95% of them are in the 2.99 and under range. I must admit, on one hand, I feel bad paying so little for books, knowing how much work an author puts into it, but when you realize that's all an author will make even on a $15 book sold through a publisher, it makes it a little easier. I think a lot of us are still in shock about how much self-publishing is taking the world by storm. Anyway, that is neither here, nor there.
For the people who say that grammar mistakes drive them crazy (I'm a self-described grammar-Nazi myself) - even novels edited by professionals sometimes come out with mistakes in them. You try writing 95,000 words and not going a little cross-eyed by the time you make it to the end. Most of the "mistakes" I noticed were either regional differences (I believe the author lives in Australia.) or simple ones that everyone pumps out here and there.
Anyhoo, as I was saying, I read a LOT, and I tend to be picky about money spent vs. said novel's worthiness. This story is worth much, much more than the 2.99 I paid for it. In all honesty, I probably wouldn't have bought it so readily if I hadn't read Frost Arch and it had cost more, but that doesn't make my enthusiasm in touting it as such diminish in the least. I am grateful that Kate Bloomfield wrote such a gem of a series to brighten up the monotony of the many mediocre novels I find myself reading.
If you're looking for fleshed-out characters with a new spin on the supernatural stories that are so popular right now, these are the books for you. They have solid pacing with a very well-thought-out story that has easily spanned two great novels so far. I saw where Flamethroat was released a bit early last month. I'm sad that it says we'll have to wait 'til 2013 for the next installment. I don't know what I'm going to do with myself if we have to wait that long!
I vote that we all share these novels with our friends, and help Kate Bloomfield's talent be pushed up to the top of the Amazon rankings! Can anyone say "Top 25?" ;)
All in all, a brilliant followup to the first in the series!
I don't mean editing like misspelled words and poor grammar (though there is plenty of that); I mean areas where the pacing isn't right and we get suddenly dropped into a different leg of the plot, and it feels like I've missed something. I mean times when the characters' motivations don't seem to make any sense, or don't jive with their actions. I mean times where the writing lacks energy.
This is a good story and overall an enjoyable read, but it suffers for its apparent lack of editing.

I really liked this book and was gripped by it. I would recommend it to young adults/ teens but older people might enjoy it to for a light hearted read.
Cant wait to read the third.
