While still very good, overall the book lost a bit of its charm and went a little downhill.
Michaela still continues to be so charming as ever but I feel some of the characters changed in a wrong way, though mainly Lara.
It comes to me she had increasingly become quite a bully and not really caring for Michaela. Also, while she keeps asking Michaela to have a faith in her she rarely gives a reason.
On the other hand, story is better, this time there are very few feeling-redutant spots unlike in the prequel. I rate it 3 stars but it's more like 3 1/2 maybe more.
Ultimately, it's still really nice book and worthy sequel, could it be better? sure, is it good? it's.
