I quit after about an hour and a half. The story was weak and the characters were entirely unoriginal. This felt very formula driven, and not a good formula at that. A LOT has to be taken on faith. One example: the villain of the novel. He's half Afganistanian (father is an Afgan rebel) and half Italian (mother is rich Italian). For the novel he needed to be educated and rich, but inherently evil. I couldn't help trying to figure out how the bad guy's parents got together in the first place. Or why the Afgan father sends his son to Italy to be raised in Italy after his tenth birthday. It was a very minor point, but this shallow storytelling is scattered throughout the book. If I was 10 years old, it wouldn't matter. Adults are going to find it annoying.
Pretty big disappointment. Didn't finish the book. His "personal" problem in the book just seems so out of character from the first book and really wasn't plausible given the timeline involved. I really like the first one in the series.
