Why? Second book in the series and have been holding on to the first book so I could read these back to back. My favorite way to read a series.

Why? Second book in the series and have been holding on to the first book so I could read these back to back. I'm probably only one of a handful of people who have yet to read this. I've avoided any but the most general reviews of it so that I would read no spoilers. Can't wait!
