I would not have thought it possible that the second book could have more spelling, grammar, punctuation, and typographical errors than the first. It's incredibly distracting from what could be a good book and series. The problems extend beyond these issues, however. The characters are poorly written, the relationships shallow, and the use of magic very inconsistent within the world the author has built.
I was so excited to see a m/m fantasy novel not written by yet another straight woman. I'm so disappointed with the books. I doubt I'll be able to finish the second one.
