2.5 stars for this one and that's being generous. It wasn't too silly, it wasn't badly written, it wasn't overly dramatic. But that was kind of the problem. It wasn't really much of anything. Nothing really happens. No angst, no tension, no drama, no suspense. Really nothing. I've never hoped and prayed for some Jerry Springer, soap opera type stuff to just randomly spring up in a story before but I think I may have actually begged at one point with this one. Just for something to make it slightly interesting. Now I didn't have high expectations for this book since the first in the series wasn't my favorite but at least there was a little action in that one. Unfortunately not so much with this one.
