I really liked the book because like how the story was at the start of the story and the characters because it's making connections and i liked how climax of the book. I don't really liked the last part which is about Scar was chased by enemy and then he got save by some peoples because I don't really understand what happened. Yes, I would recommend the book but first its better to read the first volume because it's a little confusing.
