This is the sequel to The Sacred Bones, which I quite liked, so I had been looking forward to read this book.
The story sets off right after the first book ended. If you think you don't recall anything from the first book, it might just be a good idea to reread the first novel. Or else, just try and see if any things will come back to you after you start reading (this is what I usually do). It was still enjoyable, but I didn't like it as much as I liked the first one. It also felt like a bit too much repetition. The end was also quite predictable, unfortunately. Still a nice and quick read, but not a good as the first one.
Note: I read a Dutch translation of this book
