Are you going to read the sequel?

Post by Amagine » 02 Oct 2017, 04:25

After reading the first book and seeing how it ended, are you going to read the sequel? What questions do you want to see answered in the sequel? What characters would you like to see again?

I would like a sequel that focuses on Myra and more of her life. I also wouldn't mind a sort of prequel book that focuses solely on the character, Strong Heart.

I believe the book is the first in a three-part series. The second book isn't released yet. So we are definitely getting a sequel!

So far there is only one book. I don't think I will read the sequel, as I wasn't blown away by the first one.

If there is a sequel, I wouldn't read it either. I didn't really enjoy the read and wasn't invested in the characters enough to want to know what happens to them.

I really want to see how Sarah's relationship with her new family blossoms so yes I'll read the next one.

I would be interested in reading a sequel, I want to see how it will turn to be, as in, how the other will bring about the characters.

I won't be reading the sequel since I didn't really dig this book.

I am definitely looking forward to reading the sequel. I'd like to see how things work out for Sarah. I'd also like to read more about Myra and the Native American ancestors and tribes.

If I don't have a Myra sequel or a prequel to the character, Strong Heart, I probably won't read the sequel either.

I would be interested to know what happens to Sarah and also what happens in regard to the construction which was to take place. Do they find more supporting evidence to halt things or does it go ahead?

It seems that most you agree that if Sarah is in the next book, you'll definitely read it.

I couldn't get through this one the first time I tried so I doubt I would try to read the sequel if one came out.

I will read the sequel. I want to see Sarah a bit older. I want to know how Myra's love life pans out. And I really want to know if Fletcher gets permanently ditched. I think that would bring hope to Sarah's relationship with her grandmother.
Life without a good book is something the CatInTheHat cannot imagine.


Grateful to get the opportunity to explore new books with those in the OBC.

No. There was nothing within the book to keep me interested in reading further into the lives of the characters. It was impossible to feel for Sarah, Myra, Tom or William, by the end of the book they were still virtual strangers.
