This is the second book in the Skinjackers Trilogy and so far I love it. This story is full of unique ideas and I enjoyed getting to learn about the world of Everlost and how it works. There a lot of unique concepts in this story and getting to discover them really added a lot to the story.
I liked the fact that the story alternates point's of view between Nick, Allie and Mary. All three characters are on their own mission in this book. It makes it harder to decide which side to take when readers have come to know and love these characters. I have to say that Nick is probably my favorite though. I love his detemination and belief that he is helping all the children in Everlost. Plus, I've always been a fan of chocolate. I always liked the way that Mary's character had developed so much over the course of two books. She at first came across as one of the good guys but at the end of this book I was a little afraid of her.
My only complaint was the fact that by the end of this book it didn't feel like anything had really been accomplished by either side in the war. Of course, both Nick and Mary were affected by what happened it didn't really seem like there was actually a war between them.
Anyway, I really liked this unique and exciting series and can't wait to find out how it ends.
