This was my first Jacobson, and I was a tad bit underwhelmed. I was really anticipating something gripping, and it wasn't. It is the second in the series, so I could have missed some vital info from the first, but I think it should have been strong enough without it. It had a cliffhanger ending, so naturally I'm left wondering, but unfortunately, I don't have a stronger desire to pick up the next book. Wish I did!
