The Feels: 4.5/5
Backdrop (World Building): 5/5
Book Cover: 5+/5
Ending: 5/5. Cliffhanger: This one feels like it has more closure at the end than book 1 did…such a good ending.
Will I continue this series? Yes, so looking forward to working it into my hectic reading schedule.
I'm trying to figure out what it is about this book that makes it so much better than the first…I think it's just that Nil (book #1) introduces us to the island of Nil and all it's mystery, but doesn't really delve into the mystery of it like Nil Unlocked does, it's very aptly titled, btw. There's also the characters of Rives and Skye, I loved them, connected with them so much more than I did Charlie and Thad. Thirdly, the pacing is much improved. I was so bored with reading book #1.
You kind of just keep waiting for the smoke monster to show up, though...
Overall, this second book has moved this series up on my reading schedule. If you were feeling mediocre about continuing this series, and didn't know if the second book seemed worth it, I think you should take a chance…and just do it. Plus, how can you resist that cover?
Sex Factor: No actual sex, it has a pretty clean rating.
