Found it a much slower burn than the first book, but really enjoyed it more. The world was more fleshed out and there was more time with Kell and Lila
Spoiler separately, the 450 pages it took for them to reunite was worth it. Love Alucard especially and his interactions with everyone.
Very excited to see how it end

Definitely lower stakes than the first book, which was a bit of a disappointment. More Hunger Games than A Darker Shade of Magic. A+ love triangling though.
