For me this book was better than the first one. I still don't care for the psychic network and Blue's mother. The story has taken kind of a trippy surreal tone now; but I enjoyed it. I kind of feel like this might be one of those series where it would be better to wait till they are all out to read, because of the way the story is being told. I'm sure I won't recall all the details without a reread when the next book comes out. Oh, as a small note there is very little romance in this.
