Well, the very good news is that this book two is, if anything, better than book one. In book one the twins were awfully dense about their developing powers and the adults were miserly with explanations, so that you were frustrated by how slowly the story was being set up. This book two takes off like a rocket, with a lot more action, character development and advancement of the story. (Although, chapter one has a lot of narrative explanation of the back story from book one. I like that because, since I read a lot of similar books, it reminds me of where we are, what happened before, and who the major characters are. Some authors try to weave that info into the story and dialogue, but I prefer a straight intro that gets that out of the way.)
The twins remain appealing characters, and the sibling rivalry angle has been mostly abandoned. The introduction of a new character, Tara, adds some nice variety. Like everyone else I'd like a villain a little more developed than "the Evil", but actually that works better than a complicated and lame villain backstory.Read more ›
