We didn't get significantly more world-building here, but there were a few nice touches. Several characters and relationships were fleshed out a bit, a new potential conflict or three were introduced, pack dynamics were expanded upon (loved all of the pack stuff!), and a number of people are going to see large increases in their auto insurance deductibles. There were also a lot more quips and quirky references, some of which made me laugh out loud.
Not everything was perfect, though:
• While Nita's character didn't get much time, she felt really inconsistent when she did show up, as if the authors weren't sure who she was when she wasn't being dour; her 'friendly' persona was very generic and seemed to pop up out of nowhere, which didn't feel earned.
• There was a continuity issue. It's not the hugest thing in the world, but the first book demonstrated how hellfire worked, explaining in detail (and with visual examples) that it just keeps burning until you call it back. So why was Dakota just shooting it into the sky, at moving objects, stationary objects, sometimes hitting, sometimes missing, and pretty much never calling it back? Tennessee should be a big green ball of flames right now. Green-burny-lands.
• Also, if they're going to take the romantic situation in the direction this book indicates, I'd like to see how the characters deal with some of the very specific issues that seem almost inevitable. I don't need to see it fail, but I need to see an explanation for how it can possibly succeed. I just didn't get that here, and it's going to be hard for me to go much farther in the series if those questions remain unanswered.
• It'd also help me tremendously if Amorie were more likable. Probably a big ask, but I really don't like her. Seriously. No me gusta. That can't be ideal. I mean, I'm an Anne-Rice-reading lesbian that's been dressing like a vampire for years, so I'm kinda the target demographic. I played the tabletop version of Vampire: the Masquerade, for crying out loud. I should love this character. Don't.
All in all, it's worth the read, but I didn't think it was quite as strong as the first book. I gave that one 4.25 stars. This one comes in at a flat 3 for me.
