This second volume was a lot calmer than the first, but I enjoyed it all the same. The story continues on in a very intriguing manner. Some of the characters' motivations annoyed me and I felt it was slightly stereotypical for "the guy does stupid things to get with the girl" but it didn't bother me to the point that it hindered my enjoyment on the book. I have four more volumes to read to find out what Dodge's end-goal is and I am really looking forward to seeing why he wants all these keys.
So far, I am really liking this series. I can recommend reading these first two novels seeing as how they are entertaining. I really hope the rest of the series continues to be so as well.
