"I enjoyed the travel aspect of this story a lot more than the first. I'm just kind of bummed I'm not learning much more in each addition about the magic, vampires, and other things. These stories always leave a lot to be desired. They tell of magical creatures but never going into great detail.<br/><br/>It was interesting seeing them explore a new country and of course Baz making a list of everything he hated about it. I honestly though just like the perception of Brazelton and Simon. I think it follows too many characters whom of which sides of the story doesn't add to the plot.<br/><br/>The romance to me in the background of the first book almost seemed to come to a complete halt this go around. I enjoyed the book but didn't feel like I got far after reading it.<br/><br/>These are a modern day fun light read which I really need sometimes."
