It was a pleasure spending time with Digger again because she is so real. Yes, this is a fantasy, but one that is so well done I never had to suspend disbelief, wonder about plot holes, or bend my mind in challenging ways to grasp the strangeness of the world as I read it. I could simply dwell in Digger's reality with her, feel her worries and frustrations and adrenaline and even boredom as she struggled to unravel a mystery while keeping herself safe, and I could easily believe every page of it. The mystery is around the shocking imprisonment of a friend she made in her first set of adventures, and she gets recruited to do what she does best: dig into things in the hopes of proving his innocence. As with that first book, the further entangled Digger gets, the more she finds herself involved in events far larger, more political, and more far-ranging than she would ever want.
I really liked the book. Found the characters lacked a certain amount of depth, and that parts of it were stretching for flow, but otherwise a really good story. Hated the ending, have seen it coming since the first book and it will be interesting to see how it plays out in the next installment. Should it ever appear in print. There is no record of a follow up book at this time, so if you don't like unresolved cliff hangers, don't bother starting the series.
Sequel to StarCrossed. Celyn (or Digger) is back in the city, sort of working as a thief again, when she gets entangled in a murder mystery involving one of her friends from the previous book. An engaging enough tale, but I was disappointed that it didn’t continue the main arc from StarCrossed. It comes to a satisfying conclusion except for a tiny section at the very end that begs for a sequel, which irritated me to no end. I don’t think I’ll check for a forthcoming sequel however; I’m done with this series.
this book is horribly amazing in a suckish way that rocks my world of horror and leaves me feeling good and repulsed by how wonderfully bad this book is.
