    About as good as the first in the series, but brought down by padding.

    About as good as the first in the series, but brought down by padding.

    The story is interesting. I enjoyed the relationship that seems to have developed between the two main characters since we last saw them. The threat they're facing is definitely worse than what they faced previously, although I'm thinking their reproduction rate is so quick that if they had existed for as long as it's been suggested, the world should have ended before the first book started.

    The padding in the climax really hurts the book. The big one is cannon fodder villains. There are five or six characters that are introduced in the climax. And this is the character arc of those characters:

    Intro of what the character was doing: Bob was in a room.
    Brief background of the character: Bob was a soldier in the army.
    Brief description of why the character worked for the evil organization: Bob liked to push small children out into traffic, so evil organization thought he'd be a good crossing guard.
    Character notices plot point: Bob heard a siren before the power went out.
    Character dies: Bob gets ripped apart by rampaging horde of monsters.

    Add to that the fact that chapters in the climax are very short, so we get more of the world-building-not-always-related-to-the-current-story chapter intro blurbs. We also get a small diagram of the secret military installation. After a while, it just really felt like the author was trying to get his page count up.
