This is to build the characters and where it comes from, that is a tragic story. Thanks for telling us about the problem. One complaint, and a small salvators, was that I spent the whole book going “okay, I know what’s coming next, just get on with it”, still very enjoyable but drove me nuts Goodreads is the world’s largest site for readers with over 50 million reviews. And, while this is my first visit to Corona, Salvatore hits pretty much all his signature notes with The Highwaymanwhich ends up being an enjoyable read, if not exactly wholly original.
