  • Maria C. Cuadro

    “I find the protagonists in the middle of a dangerous event, one that may spell the end for the main characters I am just touching base with again. Needless to say the adrenaline is pumping this early in the tale, so I start flipping pages as quickly as I can to find out what will happen to the characters I know while trying to remember what state they were in since I saw them last. I make it to the end breathless, excited for what could happen to the characters in the third volume. And because I am still trying to get my bearings after what I read, I start reading the story again!”

  • Reader Views III
