I can't sing enough praises for this entire series!
I read the first three books a while back. They quickly became some of my favorites. So, then I received the request to read the next three, I certainly jumped at the opportunity!
These books have all been so well-written. The character building amazes me! When you read a book that makes you feel like you are in it, like you know the characters, that is a great book!
Thank you again, Roy Griffis, for writing these books and for introducing them to me! I love them and I highly recommend them!
*Note: I received copies of these books in exchange for honest reviews.
