In general I think it's a lot better than the first one. I understood Woods and Della's relationship in this book even it was more like obsession rather than love. Well, at least it was not mainly based on lust like book 1.
This book is entertaining, but it's not very original and a tad predictable. I think that might be the reason the author added that twist in the end just to surprise the readers.
It was sad that the author killed Jace. I kinda liked him and I'm totally not that excited to read about Tripp and Bethy. They are not very interesting to me, I guess. However, I'm looking forward to reading about Grant and Harlow.
Anyway, I hope there is no more running away and misunderstanding in next books. It's getting old.
