If anything this book is better than Volume 1. The first book had a lot of standard tropes that were changed up by female leads. This time we get more in depth history on the ladies, including Vi’s previous life as a woman who’s father is trying to marry her off, thus giving us the struggles she is going through by leaving her people.
It follows up with Dee and her strangely compelling Lovecraftian type family background roots, and follows up with Hannah’s birth father.
I won’t go into any of the specific details of the story, no spoilers here really. However I want to say the story just gets better. The relationships of the group are just solidified and I was sad when the story ended.
I can’t recommend enough reading this series… Oh, and Betty is still fantastic.
