The first book, THE SPARROW, was so wonderful, and not the kind of book I thought I would like. Set in the future, traveling to another planet. But the characters drew me in so much I immediately bough the second book. I enjoyed it too. There are so ...more

I enjoyed learning about characters I'd heard about in the Outlander series but never met. Also fun to see Roger as a boy. A nice, short read to keep me anxious for the next full length installment.
