I would rate this a two because the book was just ok. I gave it a three because it did keep my attention. I didn't have to put the book down for awhile, give it some breathing room then come back to it. This book felt tense. It picked up exactly where the first left off, but until the last five pages the characters didn't go anywhere. They didn't have any real growth and the story didn't progress very far. I feel like I could have read the last ten pages moved onto the third book and not missed anything.
