Book one was ok. If it wasn't for Kindle unlimited, I would not have purchased book two. I don't understand all the 4 and 5 star reviews. I had to do a lot of skimming. Made it to book 8 and I'm out. I don't even care anymore to see how it ends, if it ever ends. So wordy when not necessary. Describing every decision made and unmade and possible other decisions and scenarios and on and on and on. This series could easily have been one book.
