I'd do nothing but reading if I could (ok, maybe eat some great food, buy some fancy shoes between two books...oh, and spend some quality time with the gorgeous guy I married while I am on reading-break anyway...)
Really like this sequel.
This is the kind of UF I like - not too sweet, not sappy at all. Gritty, sometimes brutal, always action-laced with interesting and diverse characters.
The world-building is interesting enough, but this series lives through the characters I feel.
I thought the first book a bit stronger than this one, but it is a great series imho.
