I really enjoyed the first but I absolutely loved the second. I think that's par for the course with a series, we begin to connect with the characters and become invested in the outcome as if we knew them! Cordi is developing as a character along with her abilities, which are pretty awesome. We meet a lot of the same characters, some of them I loved, some I distrusted along with Cordi and some new ones. I really loved Terra, she seems to be very in tune with Cordi, I'm looking forward to seeing her again, she was brilliant. My dislike of Nick grew in this series along with my love for Logan! Logan is so awesome I really want Cordi to see that too!
This time Cordi has a wild ride and yet again goes out on her own after a 'trace' and ends up in trouble. I absolutely loved where that took her and the plot line with the dogs was totally brilliant, I enjoyed every second of it. Completely original. Her cases this time revolve around a lost dog and suicides within the city that don't appear to be suicides. Discovering the bad guy was terrifying and there was a point where I didn't see a way out but it the story found its way and I found myself loving her character even more. I hugely look forward to the next instalment when it comes out, and having discovered a few snippets on the authors website about life around the time of the melding I am even more curious. I am in it for the long haul with this series.
