Totally gripping story. I enjoyed the first book more than the second one though. I did not like the POV character for the second book which brought down my enjoyment of the story particularly because she kept inserting her thoughts. Another thing I didn’t like was not learning the name or sex of the POV character for both books until a few chapters in. If I hadn’t read a synopsis of these books before I wouldn’t even have known that both protagonists were female. However, that was a minor point and didn’t detract from my understanding of the story.
