I haven't read the previous book in the series or anything else by the authors but I definitely didn't feel lost while reading this book. The main characters Jo and Wynn were likeable and interesting to follow. The first half of this was really interesting to me and I feel like I read it really fast. After the secrets behind Jo's real parents were revealed I felt like the book kind of dragged on. I would definitely be interested in reading more of this series.
Thanks to Netgalley and the publisher for the galley.
