The roles of danoelle people in both books bothered me less than things that happened at the end of both books.
But it also works as a stand-alone book. As for me, I’m not wasting any more time on it.
Other books in the series. That needed more explanation. Inconsistent, uninteresting, badly developed and two-dimensional.
