  1. I bought the first Agency book earlier this year and still haven't read it yet. Can't believe the second book is released already. Hope you have another good reading week!

  6. Loved the Lightning Thief! I have yet to read the others though...

    Have you read the first Agency book by any chance? I snagged a copy of the second one (ARC) but I haven't read the first. I don't know if it will be too confusing if I don't read the first one.

  7. Cialina- I've read the first novel and enjoyed it. If you want, you can check out my review for the first Angency novel here:

    While I don't necessarily think you'll be too confused if you skip the first one because she's basically investigating a murder, but I would still recommend reading the first one.

    The main characters are introduced (including the love interest that reappears in the next book), you learn about Mary's mysterious past, and the actual Agency group and their objectives are better explained in the Agency 1. Basically, the first novel sets up the foundations and introductions needed... but the second book is more exciting. ^.~

    I don't really know if that helped at all but ultimately, it's your choice. If you skip the first one, there will be a few missing pieces of information that you might have to figure out on your own... but otherwise, you could probably get by if you didn't mind that.
