I liked it better than the first volume. For one thing, the pace of the book has slowed down, which has the unfortunate side effect of making the book seem a lot shorter than the first. But it's worth it, as the book is a lot more focused and a lot less jumpy.

Instead of a madcap dash across the planet, Wilson sticks to explaining the central idea of hyperpraxis, giving us a greater sense of what's going on, while suggesting some intriguing ideas of where the story might go. Along the way, we get some character development for Zayn, and my biggest complaint about the book is that I wish Blythe's sojourn in his life could have been lengthened. Her suspicion that he might be a terrorist seems to come from out of nowhere (although it is done away with just as quickly).

If the first volume was all about setting up the pieces, this second volume belatedly describes the gameboard. Now that the groundwork has been done, I'm looking forward to volume three. ( )

This is getting better with each volume. When does the next one come out?
