This is an action-packed sequel to "A Corner of White" and really moves the plot along. There are plot twists revealed in this book -- some I had guessed, others were a total surprise. This second part of the trilogy moved along at a faster pace than the first and included some exciting sequences that advanced the storyline.
Madeleine and Elliot continue to communicate through the crack. We learn more about the royal family and where they are as well as how they can be rescued. The kids in the Alliance get to play an important part in helping Princess Ko. We learn more about many open-ended items from the first part as well.
If you were a bit underwhelmed by Part 1, do not give up. Read on! I am happy to say that I have "A Tangle of Gold" already checked out and ready to read.
