Notes and Opinions:  Well this one was better than book one that I read a little while ago. But it still fell far from the 5 star book I was looking for.  This one has some major issues with getting the story to us in a way we can understand it. I found it very confusing and kind of all over the place. I think with some work this could become a great book but for me it just fell far from what I was expecting.  If you die hard loved book one you might like this book more than I did.
