Me encanto el primer libro y este segundo no se diga, giros y sorpresas muy inesperados, empezaré el tercer y último para terminar esta trilogía.


Debo admitir que al principio me costó mucho engancharme con la historia, sin embargo los últimos 3 capítulos me dejaron con la boca abierta, fueron impactantes todas los cambios inesperados que pasaron y el final fue impresionante, te deja con ganas de leer el libro que sigue!


Esta buenisimo
