This series continues to get better. We have more of a traditional sci-fi feel in book one and it opens with a spaceship battle. We see a lot of the ships and technologies throughout the story. We also get to see a lot more of the politics that govern The Society and how poisonous it really is.
Darrow finds himself under attach once again - this time from the family he thought to ally himself with. In an effort to prove himself and regain his status, he alienates those that are closest to him and things just play out in a very interesting way.
There are tons of secrets revealed and lots of shocking situations that I never saw coming. Darrow learns a lot in the story - but mostly by making mistakes. This book has a very different feel from the first. We have much larger scaled battles with more space technology involved at all levels of the story.
The ending - one of the biggest cliffhangers I've seen. But it was so well done.
