You're on page 12 of 98 before you even get to chapter one. Truely, this series of 4 books should have been one single book. I dont get the idea of writing several books with 80 pages or so each? Decent read but completly frustrating in format and presentation. Feels like a scam and not worthy of this usually decent writer!
