I like that now that we know who all the characters we get to see a more involved story. The idea of a girl masquerading as a boy is a pretty simple one, but as people start figuring things out it all gets pretty complicated. With everyone getting older and taking on more responsibility the stakes are certainly higher.
I tend to hate love triangles but with Alanna being dead set against falling in love it’s a bit easier to deal with. George and Jon are two very different guys and I like them both. I guess I’m just glad she’s not the kind of character who is all ‘I love whoever is closest’ which is always a big turn-off.
I’m now halfway through the series which so far has been pretty good like I remembered. I give it four out of five stars.
