3.5/5 Not as solid as the first one but still a great thriller. ( )

The sequel to The Archived wasn't as good as the first book. There is just a bit too much angsty inner dialogue that made the book feel draggy. That said, the plot and twists were still good. Mackenzie and Roland's relationship was my favourite bit, very Buffy and Giles. If the third book is ever published, I'd still read it despite the 3 stars rating. ( )

I enjoyed the second one of these a litle bit more than the first. And what a lovely surprise for a character to go to school and for her peers to be nice. I thought all US schools were full of sociopaths and psychopaths! A non repeat of the trope gets a big tick from me. It is YA but not as superficial as that label can be. ( )

The previous novel in this series was a slow starter, but Schwab really hit her stride in this second instalment. The pacing picked up a quite a bit, and the dual plot lines (Mac dealing with a new school and her duties as a Keeper for the Archives) balanced a lot better than the more depressing topic of dealing with her brother's death. By the end of this novel Owen is finally gone for good, but Mac has started to question the rules of the Archive after she encounters the rigid rules and brutal enforcement tactics employed by Agatha (the district supervisor) and it isn't likely that she'll be able to just go on following along as she has before. Her relationship with Wesley is off to a promising start as well, even though it is frought with potential conflict, so the next book in the series (due to come out early next year hopefully!) should be good!
