My Opinion:
Great book. Couldn´t cope 100% with the first book. But it was awesome anyway. I read the whole books in like 2 days which is for me insanely fast xD
I just couldn´t put it down because I had to know what would happen. Since I knew there also is a book number 3 :P

My Conclusion:
I give it 4 out of 6 stars.
Based out of the fact that it is not as good as the first one. It´s a little long at some times, where you feel nothing is happening. But in fact things happens. Don´t know if that makes any sense at all xD And I missed all the laughing points. There are not all the fun comments as you found through the whole first book. I missed that. But I can also see that it wouldn´t really have fitted in to the story plot either. But I am really looking forward to read the third book. Which hopefully will arrive in my mailbox soon :P
