I loved the first book so much that I was delighted to find there were two more. I really enjoyd this second book and found the way the author uses the characters fascinating. They are the same people but because of her different upbringing, Artemi is a subtly different person. This means that their relationship is different and the whole theme shifts. As with the first book, I wanted to read it all the time and got through it too fast! Went straight onto the third book, but that's another story.... If you have read this one, the next one is even better.
