I was forced to give the first story in this series a scathing, for me, review on audible because of production issues. The audio quality of the first book is bellow sub-par. I loved the narrator so much and was intrigued by the story I decided to go ahead with the second book and I am so glad I did. There were no productions issues. The narration was superb, Ms. Ronconi does such a good job giving each character their own voice, it is really so pleasant to listen to her.
The plot of this book was more developed and engaging than the first book. I also thought it was funnier than the first. Sebastian and Garnet continue to develop and define their relationship, although some of this seemed out of character to me. Garnet makes strides to reconcile with her past and identity. The secondary character that I found quite endearing are back, for the most part. My biggest problem with the story is that sometimes it seems abridged although it claims not to be. There would be phrases that sounded like they were referring something that happened earlier in the novel, except I don't think it did. This happened several times. Maybe these are things that will be addressed in forthcoming books in the series but they were mundane enough to not seem likely.
