After reading Fallen, I had to read this one. I wasn't disappointed, however I was a little bit impressed. Luce had gone from totally trusting Daniel to having doubts and actually started thinking on her own. I knew she was capable of it, and as the book continued she started to develop more than she was in the first book. I still feel that she is dependent on Daniel, although it does start to change a bit here.
The story line continues, doesn't repeat the same type of scenario's that occurred in the first book. While there are new characters, the old ones do make appearances. I am glad they didn't just get dumped, especially since Luce wasn't able to totally interact with them.
Overall the book was good, and probably better than the first IMHO so I give this book:
