Why am I waiting for this book? - Actually, I already have a review copy of this and I'll be reading it very soon. This is a sort of sequel to Prosperity which I loved, with separate stories about all the main characters. I discovered Alexis Hall's books just recently but I'm completely blown away by his writing and can't wait to read more of it.
