Compared to the amazing #1, this one is a rather poor little sequel. I suppose the weakest part is the tedious pace and dull tone of the story. Its wishy washy end doesn't help much either though.
Nevertheless, there is also the direction of the book, which seems to have taken the course to the young-adult land together with Whiskey who ...
"... felt a hollowness in her chest, the same sensation she got when she had done something stupid. No matter how many times she told herself she would do the right thing and act like an adult, she inevitably followed the path of childishness instead."
And of course Elisibet, whom part I'm still not sure of. Whiskey has her memories and her power, share her feelings. Yet she's not her.
