Read book 2 today, even though it wasn't your favorite Nieto, I certainly thought it had enough improvement over book 1 to continue reading. There's some decent little subplots building, and I wonder what'll happen to the Alphas.
Nice to see characters like Carmichael die, I honestly thought people like him would stay alive for ever, thankfully the status quo seems to change regularly.
Also the character of Kim seemed a bit underdeveloped. Somthing more should have been done with her.
Overall I have two books I have got unread, and another 1 I need to order before I'll get around to the third book at least, but at least it's won me over enough to get a third shot. Definite imrprovement.
