Even though I rated the book with 5 stars, there isn't that much action as in the 1st book. The setting stayed quite the same. There weren't any major problems that peak your suspense level. Still I love how Mr Yancey had made the book in different points of views, it just makes the book that more incredible. The world is basically ending and everyone has a different opinion on what is happening. Other than that the series is great and I can't wait to read the last book, 'The Last Star'.
