I think if possible that this was slightly better than the first book. I absolutely adore Ia, not only her skills but her amazing will power and strength. I think she is one of my all time favorite female characters. The plot was wicked cool and I was thrilled to be able to follow Ia's journey and see her getting closer to her end goal. I especially loved the fighting scenes and how Ia navigated them. I can't wait to read the next book - as soon as this review is done I'm gonna start book 3.
I'm wildly fascinated by this author's imagination and I'll say this is one of the better sci-fi series out there imo.
