I am super interested in this book, but am still hesitant to invest myself in reading it. I'm hoping that someone can help me with this.

For those who've read it:
  • Does it end in a cliffhanger, or with other gnawing questions left unanswered?
  • Does anyone know if or when the second book will be out?

Please, no spoilers :no-spoil:

Thank you!

I thought that went without saying, but yes, I'm asking about Roan :tiphat:

The reviewer can probably answer those questions best. As it is the first book in the series, there are most likely to be some unanswered questions. I will give this book a try regardless, as it sounds captivating.

I tried that first with no luck. There's still hope for an answer here. I'm patient :tiphat:
I assume there will be some ongoing storyline, but with the date when this was published, it makes me reluctant to dive in before I know.

I understand and I feel the same. If it wasn't the BOTM, I would have awaited before starting it. Hopefully you will get an answer fast. :)

I feel the same way. I have other things that I want to read before this. I am curious whether people think it is good enough to jump the queue.

I'm on the fence too! I'm a few chapters in, but it will be a big time investment to finish the whole book....I didn't even think about cliffhanger endings. I certainly hope it doesn't have an incomplete feeling at the end!

I am more than half way in; and while the book is good, it is very long. I'm having a little trouble finishing it because it seems to drag a little for me in places. I usually read very fast, but am getting stuck in a couple places. I hope it picks up; I don't want to stop reading this far into the book. I do feel the book is worth the chance though if you have the time to invest.

I am the same way. It feels like it is taking it a long time to read, however, they did do a good job still keeping me interested in it. I find myself having to flip back and forth from this book to my other book to keep me going also.

Me too! I usually have a couple books going at a time when I take a break from writing. ☺ It's like clearing your palate, ha!

I find the length daunting. This will take me several weeks in my busy schedule. I would need to find a dedicated time to read the book and nothing else. I would really prefer if it was shorter so that I would only need to spend a few days on it as opposed to a few weeks.

It is a good story, it's just a little long. I think you will enjoy it. ☺

Roan is a rich story with a raft of believable characters, even the "mythical" ones. I do recommend it.
