BookLovingLady Yes, there can be too many. It all depends on the main characters in the very first novel. Additional characters in later novels just don't do it for me.
Sue Yes there can be too many. I'd say 7 is about tops for me. I've read more and it depends on the characters. I'd much rather have more included in a novel (page wise included) and pay more than have a few books 150-200 pages that leave you hanging. I hate that. It just seems like a rip off to me.
