Hmmmm. This second installment wasn't as good, to me as the first.
Maybe because the mind blowing conclusion of the first installment already happened and so it "took away" from the 'upgrade' in this book. It all seemed a bit boring.
I don't like boring reads. I need to be engaged. If I wasn't on a timeline of books to read by the end of the year, I feel like this one would have fallen though the cracks as a DNF in the name of sheer boredom.
All in all: I'm not impressed.
