I didn't like this second book in the series quite as much as the first. The narrative kept switching back and forth from chapter to chapter between Garet's search for Will in Paris, and Will's life with Garet's ancestor Marguerite in 1602. The switching back and forth was a little tedious, but what I really didn't care for was Will's life. And it made me wonder why exactly Garet had fallen for him in the previous book. He's not a very likable character.
I still really enjoyed the worldbuilding, and while not exactly a cliffhanger, I really did not see the ending coming, so I am looking forward to seeing where the story goes from here in book 3.
