Alright, book number two, not quite as good as the first. It got good in the middle though. It added a few more characters and the previous main characters took a back seat. I think that is why it wasn't as compelling. But again I was amazed at the forces of darkness and the very real stance we need to take against them. "Don't waste today's fuel on yesterday's journey." This was a quote that I liked. So many times I spend today fretting or feeling guilty over yesterday. Yesterday is gone, move on and make today what it needs to be. Really, I only have enough energy for today anyway. I am looking forward to reading the last book but you will just have to wait as my mother has to finish it first. But trust me, I am breathing down her neck to hurry up!
