Update: Ruse by Cindy Pon (Spoiler-Free)
DNF @ 30% I know exactly what went wrong here. The same thing happened when I tried to read The Brink of Darkness on NetGalley a year after the first one came out... except it's been two years since I read Want. Something about the combination of not reading a physical copy, and not caring about the world or characters anymore just makes a terrible mix. I honestly feel bad about not finishing this, but I just don't have the time to be reading books I'm not enjoying. However, if you just read Want, and you're wondering if the sequel is any good, I honestly think it is. It's just been too long for me to still be invested in the story. I need to start reading more series with all of the books out already!
