This review is for the entire trilogy.I hope this doesn t sound snobbish, but this trilogy forever changes my mind about indie books Up until now I ve been either ho hum or actively looked down on all the self published Kindle books out there In my defense, a lot of that was due to all those spam books in the Kindle store On the other hand some was also due to the fact that I always figured that if a book was really good, someone would pick it up Guess I was wrong Anyway, back to the books This review is for the entire trilogy.I hope this doesn t sound snobbish, but this trilogy forever changes my mind about indie books Up until now I ve been either ho hum or actively looked down on all the self published Kindle books out there In my defense, a lot of that was due to all those spam books in the Kindle store On the other hand some was also due to the fact that I always figured
