This sequel lived up to (possibly exceeded) the first book. I love this multiverse and the incredible imagination that went into creating it. The new dimensions were super interesting; I love waiting to see what Gray comes up with.
In an extension of the first book, the romance is definitely exaggerated. I totally understand that this is for a teenage audience and that teenagers feel things very strongly, but it makes me concerned that Gray makes it sound like romantic love makes or breaks your life. Marguerite's entire worldview is dependent on her relationships with guys. Admittedly, this is a realistic shortcoming of teenagers, but I worry that it provides a poor example of how teenagers *should* live.
That being said, I still really like the plot and am eager to resolve the ending cliffhanger by reading the final book. She really expanded the series plot in this book with some fascinating twists. I was literally screaming, "Aaaaaah!" when I finished, so I can't wait to find out what happens next.
The first book ended it off so nicely, I almost wish it just stayed that way. But no, here comes a curveball. In order to save the love of her life, Marguerite has to go back into different dimensions to save pieces of his soul. Along the way, secrets and lies are uncovered, which will certainly lead readers to question and form predictions. This book really hurt because "why couldn't they just be together HONESTLY." Warning: the ending is a really intense cliffhanger and as a precaution, I would suggest to have the last/third book close by to instantly vanquish the fear of the unknown. 3.5/5 stars
