Better than the first book. Clara and crew travel to the coast to discover her hertiage. Discover it she does. With some very interesting surprises for herself and the Band she travels with. Along the way the are attacked by the fragment aided by Fredric. Clara meets two new fragment members both who will play important roles in her future. She is constantly under pressure from her relationships with her potential mates. Some of these mates are new some old and some unexpected. Not everyone and everything is what they seem in this second book. Tamara keeps us on our toes in this beautiful follow-up book. Book 3 needs to hurry up so I can find out what happens next. Just read this series already. You won't be dissapointed.
