I am not usually one for a tragic story but this one is so well done. The characters develop so much in this book, they are starting to grow up and it is a beautiful thing. Their growing pains are obvious and searing, but very worth it.
This one comes with some very unexpected plot twists. It is definitely worth the read, especially if you liked the first book.
Lev Grossman again leaves the reader feeling the need to snatch up the next book in the series and read or listen like a madman. I am completely obsessed with the Fillory Universe and I truly can't stop. Mark Bramhill brings the worlds to life, and even as I reread the stories, I hear the narration in his voice. Absolutely amazing!!!
Great reader. Story not as good. Looking forward to Book 3. (That seems almost to have been this book's purpose: fill some gaps from Book 1, while setting up the next one.)
Very much enjoyed the narration and inventive creatures. But for me the story jumped around to much and although we learned a lot about a specifich character whos story it vital to this book it just slowed the story down to a snails pace and personally I would of liked a little more intensity like in the first book. Just an opinion I will def be finishing the series.
