Rating: 5/5 stars
First of all a huge thanks to the author and his team for sharing me the book and giving me a chance to get acquainted with the author’s work.
Halahala is back people and with much more thrills and turns to add to the awesomeness of the series. I am lucky that by the time I had finished the first book , the second book was right around the corner and the author’s team especially the publishing house had been kind enough to share the book because trust me you might want to have the second book close by because you wouldn’t want to stop your life in Halahala so soon.
The characters have evolved so much by the second book that you almost live through them by the second book. As much as they retain all the qualities that you loved in these characters in the first book, you will see much more to them in this book
I love the graph through which the book travels, you see positive changes to both characters, the basic plot and the nature of the book in general
I love how the series succeeds in engaging its readers through its fast paced and simple narration yet powerful story.
I must say that as much as I love the series , I can’t take my eyes off from the book cover and I couldn’t resist from saying “WHAT AN AWESOME ARTWORK”
So in conclusion, I think this is the best series that you can invest your time in because at the end of it, you would be in a hangover from all that happened in Halahala
