I'm going to track down the book and read it because I just want to immerse myself in that world again.
Somehow they have ended up making an even better second season and I am addicted. It freaks me out, yet hooks me at the same time. The best part is that the same actors who were in Season 1 are back in Season 2, but in different roles and I'm loving it. You don't have any problems believing them in their new roles and it adds great depth to the show.
