Sequel?

Post by jgraney8 » 27 Aug 2018, 17:39

The twist at the end of the novel suggests that we might see more of Agent Sliver. Do you think there will be a sequel or even a series featuring Agent Sliver?

I wondered the same thing. I think a sequel would be interesting, and I hope it happens!

Yes, I definitely thing there will be a sequel. I think the ending opened the door to continue the saga of Sliver. I would really like to see more of this story.

That was my impression also. He seems ready to seek redemption.

A sequel would be fun I think. Sliver has wrongs to be righted.

I think the author did that on purpose. Depending on how this book would be received, there is an open door for a sequel. Who knows, he could be working on one as we speak! :wink:

Not sure if the author wants to revisit this book again or not. Sometimes it is obvious that a sequel is being set up. Frankly, I think it is a relief not to know for sure. However, a sequel is usually a smart move for a writer.

I love books with continued characters like Jack Reacher and I think the author could bring this character back and expand on his personality snd backstory

Another Reacher fan, that's great. I agree that Sliver's character could be expanded and deepened. He is still troubled at the end of the novel. His backstory could use more development too. There are so many possibilities.

The way the story ends indeed gives room for a sequel. I would also like to know what happened eventually, especially to Agent Silver.

Very true, we would like to know if he eventually came to terms with reality and how he was able to handle the whole situation given that he is now free.

Because the book was written in 2012, I'm not sure a sequel is on the cards, but I hope so.
It was open for the perfect sequel. I hope Gariffo makes a plan...
