    Classic Second in a Trilogy - okay, but really only serves to get the plot to Book 3

    Book 1 (Darkest Hours) in the trilogy was fairly well done and showed some promise for the series. Unfortunately, book 2 (Darkest Desires) seems to copy the plot from book 1. SPOILER ALERT: I mean, if you had just gone through a jealous ex situation with your best friend, you would think that you would be quicker to pick up on it and not let it affect your relationship with your man. Not so here. The characters don't seem to build on book 1. It's as if they have learned nothing from their experiences. Also, the issues with Book 1 continue in Book 2 re: need for an editor. There were many more times here where the sentence construction was so poor, I had to read the sentence several times to figure out what the author was saying. Also, sometimes words were reversed in such a way that it seemed like the author may not speak English as his/her first language. Narration also repeated facts, and section breaks were poorly timed, kind of like how blockbuster movies are poorly broken up when fit into local tv's rigid commercial schedule. So the pacing is a bit off, and makes you feel like the time line is wonky. Author's use of sex scenes is a bit more subdued than book 1, but still too many to really be necessary for character development or plot continuation. I think this is the classic Book 2 in a trilogy, for example, consider Lord of the Rings, Two Towers - interesting, but certainly not as epic as Return of the King or as classic as Fellowship of the Ring. The purpose of book 2 seems to be to show the development of the secondary background plot/issue in the book - i.e., the plot re: shadowdrifters. This book gets you to book 3. I hope Book 3 (Darkest Intentions) packs a nice punch and resolves the simmering issues in book 2. Otherwise, it will be totally lame, and I'll wish I had never read any books in the series.
