I read all kinds of books (one of my friends jokes that I will read anything that holds still long enough), but sci fi/fantasy is my favorite. I also love books on anthropology and archaeology and other sciences.
Not a bad sequel. The writing, while still not descriptive, was a bit better than The Looking Glass Wars. The plot was a little better, and the characters were a bit more fleshed out. All in all, not bad, but not really great either.
