Do You Plan to Continue the Series?

Post by hsimone » 03 Apr 2017, 01:26

Raven's Peak is just the beginning of the World on Fire series. At this point there are two other books, Raven's Fall and Raven's Rise. After reading this one, do you plan to continue the series? Why or why not?

For myself, I am torn, so I'm curious to see what others think!

I don't think I will, as I grew tired of the genre. I may change my mind later when I"m in the mood for a light read.

I don't think I will either. I was curious what this book was about as it's book of the month. But it didn't intrigue me enough to continue.

I think I'm most interested in The Ninth Circle right now. It's a short story that follows Arthur a few years before the events of Raven's Peak. I've already got it on my Kindle and ready to read.

I think I will at least give the second book a try. Although I wasn't a fan of the main characters, I thought the overall story was interesting and I want to see where it goes. Depending on how I feel about the second installment, I will reevaluate if I want to continue on after that.

I definitely plan to continue to see if it is interesting later on. I loved the first book and want to see what else happens.

I read the book because it is the book of the month but this isn't a usual genre that I read and honestly, I didn't like the story enough to continue it. It wasn't bad but this was not a story I would have ever chosen to read on my own.

The story was interesting, but it's not the type of story I'd normally be into. Part of the ongoing drama had too much drama so I lost interest. I won't be reading the rest of the series.

This genre is one that I like to read so I think I will go onto the second book and see how it goes. The first one I did like and I would like to see where the characters end up.

I'll definitely read the second book and then probably the third, depending on how well it hooks me and keeps my attention.

Yes, I'll definitely try and read the rest of the series. I felt the ending left so much unexplained that I need to know what happens next

I found Raven's Peak interesting. I would read all books because I'm curious about Arthur destiny and Council's intrigues (I have some guesses and want to check if I'm right or not :idea: ). Moreover I'd like to know about demonic world more.

Yeah, the world is intriguing as much as anything else!
