There were a few plot twists but I did see them coming. They were set up pretty obviously. That does not mean that I didn't enjoy them they just would have been better had they been the surprises that they were going to be.
I still enjoyed the characters in this book. Though there were a few moments when I wanted to bang a few heads together they weren't too frequent.
Overall I think that this was an enjoyable second book and I am looking forward to the third some time in the distant future.
