Starting with the negatives, again the editing on this book is atrocious.  Typos every 5 or so pages throughout.  Thats about it though for complaints on this book.  We finally get some decent character development and growth and we get it from most of the main characters.  This one starts with its foot on the gas and doesn't let up until the last page.  It was an absolute thrill to read all the way through.  And the development at the end, omfg I cannot wait for the next book!  This is the first title in the series I would honestly recommend to most people.  The writing is also more cinematic this time which I felt added to the pace and didn't detract from the quality of the story.

Lots of editing errors. Lots of repetitious ramblings. Not the best entry in the series.

This was better than the last book as far as things that annoyed me. Although I did dock a star for the author using the term “Latinx.” It’s not just me that finds that term annoying.

Anyway, I liked that some of the characters seemed to mature in this story. The ending definitely left room for sequels which is fine with me.
