Not quite as good as the first one, but I fear that second volumes usually lag a bit in general. I will keep reading though as Mare’s final act in this volume probably sign posts her redemption to come.
It is interesting reading all the usual tropes common in wars, civil wars & acts of insurgency/terrorism. It’s a dialogue we hear every night on the news, convincing ourselves we are on the side of right.
Given that the book has made me think about these issues I will definitely keep reading to see what’s next.
