Read my full review: http://bit.ly/133uo1rMy opinion: I knew looking at the powerful cover of this book that I was in for a rockin' ride and Cerece didn't disappoint. As with the first in the series, characters were really well developed and multidimensional. A number of the characters were carried over from the first, but Ms. Murphy did well to introduce some new characters, including new vilians. As my warning as with the first one, although I feel that this is an excellent introduction to Dystopian literature, due to language and some sexual and violent scenes, I would stress older teens or young adults. I must admit that I did have a harder time with some of the more graphic violence in this novel, but won't go into it because that would be a spoiler and we know how much I abhor spoilers!
