I like an author who continues to have fun with her characters and delves more into their world and their lives. It's great for fans because they feel like the author is getting something special from the author.
It's not a polished product, which is fine as long as it remains free website comment. It would be a shame for her to turn unpolished work (like Stephanie Meyer did) into something fans have to pay for.
As is the story is enjoyable and interesting, filled with the same action I have come to love from Maria. I like Ari and Janco and it's great to see something from their perspective. I'd like to see something more from Maren too.
