Loved this!! It's a really great sequel, and I thoroughly enjoyed jumping back into the renaissance Italy setting. It was just as creepy and mysterious as the first book, if not more so! I loved the plot developments involving the Order of the Eternal Rose, it definitely kept me guessing. I liked how Cass still had her strong-willed personality. I thought the romance aspect suffered some, and was not as prevalent. I also still have some unanswered questions, but hopefully they will be addressed in the next book! Overall, I definitely loved it especially the slight paranormal aspect that's introduced!
