I was not terribly impressed with this sequel. I think I expected more, I expected Jessica to be more mature, but she was still the same girl from the first book.Definitely recommend this who want to know more about the characters, especially Lucius and Raniero, who in my opinion, are what kept me reading this book. Besides that, I cannot say that I was surprised with the mystery, it was pretty clear who the bad guys were all along. And Jessica's and Mindy's POVs were somewhat annoying. Still Raniero and Lucius kept the story going.
