Probably not. I really liked the first book in the series and thought that the second was fine. But this was pretty bad--desperately needed an editor as it was much too long and needlessly so, as the extra description did little to further the story. There were so many great themes that I wished the author would explore (e.g., art during crises, revolutionaries becoming the same as the political entity that they are fighting) but she got far too bogged down in the love story. The love story itself is uninteresting as Cassia never wavers in her love, so the other character (trying to avoid spoilers--not that the end is suprising) just sort of hangs around and feels bad the entire time.
Shorten the pointless description. I do not need to be reminded of the same poems over and over again. Also, I realize that this is a teen love story, but focus on something beside feeling love over and over again.
The actor narrating Zander did a decent job. The others make the dialogue, already a little cheesy, almost unbearable. Count how many times Cassia says "Yes!" or how many syllables she drags out in "Ky!" As for Ky, he's breathy and whining--I actually groaned aloud every time he described his love for Cassia.
Boredom, mostly. A little bit of repulsion and embarrassment--teens describing their love for one another over and over and over and over...
