Sometimes reading a companion series is hard. Even when you remind yourself it’s not the original series, it leaves the door open for comparisons. While this is different, I really enjoyed the story. I also loved that some of the side characters from VA got a chance to play bigger roles in this story.
There were less surprises for me in this book, because I saw things coming a lot sooner than I ever did while reading VA. However, that wasn’t necessarily a bad thing, nor did it take away from my overall enjoyment of the story.
Adrian kept me reading, while Sydney slowly grew on me. I liked her in VA, but now I’m rather fond of her. I’ve also always had a soft spot for Eddie, so I’m glad he’s part of this series too.
