really liked it

I started reading "Echoes of Understorey" in the belief that this was a standalone novel, or at least the first one of a series, as I've never heard of it before.
Still, when I added it on my Goodreads shelf and I saw that it was a sequel, I felt intimidated, the least.
"How am I supposed to catch up with everything that's happened in the first novel? What if the world of this story has already been built and some things are taken for granted? What if, because of not having read the first novel, I won't be able to fully appreciate this book?"
I couldn't help but ask these questions to myself, still, right from the prologue of the novel, I was hooked and there was no way out!
I absolutely adored the writing style, the world-building, the general feeling I was getting from the novel and the PHENOMENAL idea of the Fathers and Mothers of Imeris!
The pacing and the unfolding of the plot seemed ideal for me and, as I love descriptions and flashbacks, I managed to relate with the characters of the book, both the heroes and the villains. I enjoyed the dialogues and the dynamics between the characters, the plot twists and some of the cliffhanging endings of specific chapters, as they made me crave for more.
Overall, to me, this was a really enjoyable read, full of adventure, magic, fantasy and the unbreakable bonds of family and friendship.
