There's something about these books. They start out kind of slow, for me anyway, but the ending is so fast paced and I feel like I just got off a rollercoaster. Mid-way I can't wait to finish the story and move onto something else, but by the end I instantly have to read the next one. This is more accurate for this book than the first one. But I think that's because the Native American mythological aspect of it just doesn't interest me. But overall still a good read.
