I'm not enjoying this nearly as much as I did the first one. I'm not sure if I am just cranky or whether some of the characters are just that annoying. I'd prefer to think it is the latter, obviously.
Lysandra is driving me crazy. She is oh-so-annoyed by people treating her "like a girl" and then she acts the way people were apparently afraid she would the first time something happens?
I would find her more annoying, except that her nemesis is Jonas, and good grief is he a pain. His creepy thing for Cleo is bothering me more and more. Everytime they see each other, which happens much more often than I'd like (and also perhaps more often than makes perfect sense, given their respective situations), I am treated to a strangely specific reminder of how the other one looks. I don't care how narrow his hips are, Cleo. I don't care about Cleo's long, pale, golden hair, Jonas. Just stop. I know what you guys look like and I don't need you drooling over each other while you're angry.
For actual storyline thoughts:
