User Review  - Maya - Goodreads

It is nice to know what you are signing onto. The history, facts, and questions. Much like the rest of this series, it is not necessarily aimed at newcomers- it welcomes all no matter where they are on the journey. It is pretty easy to read and a good springboard for further inquiry. Read full review
