Far better than the first book, a unique story line, leaves you wanting to read the 3rd book.
In order to enjoy this, you'll be forced to wade through the first book.

A fairly good start....
tapers off badly when a fantasy element is introduced!
|Ant and Bee - Angela Banner||Going on a Plane - Anne Civardi|
|The Last Banquet - Jonathan Grimwood|
The writing was excellent and the intracies of the story fascinating, including the strange recipes.
Some of the things that happened were disgusting and slightly unbelievable.
