This is the second book in the Port Aster Secrets by Sandra Orchard. I didn’t read the first book and it hindered me in reading this book. Because I didn’t read the first book, I was lost in some of the things that happened and it held me back from getting ingrained in the story. I also found the character development lacking. This could have just been since I didn’t read the first book but it held me back from relating to the characters and it didn’t make me like them. I think the plot was well written and if the characters had more development throughout the book I might have liked the book better. I also didn’t like the ending because it seemed abrupt to me and there was no conclusions to many of the questions I had. The book was okay but if someone wants to read it, I suggest reading the first one because hopefully this book will make more sense and the characters develop more.
