Then I was given the opportunity to review the third book in the series by TLC Book Tours (coming tomorrow), which basically meant I needed to suck it up and get the second book in the series read ASAP!
The Angel’s Game by Carlos Ruiz Zafon is the second book in The Cemetery of Forgotten Books trilogy, although it actually is a prequel.
Remember when I talked about The Cemetery of Forgotten Books? Basically it’s heaven on Earth for book lovers: a secret labyrinth of a place where books go so that they will never be forgotten. On your first trip, you get to chose your own book (or does the book choose you?) that you must protect.
David Martin is a prospective writer who is given the opportunity to write trashy crime novels under a pen name and reap very little benefit. He is propositioned by a stranger and given a book offer he cannot refuse. . . but it comes with a terrible price.
I LOVED The Shadow of the Wind. I liked The Angel’s Game. Both stories are connected but are also books that can be read independently. I just missed The Shadow of the Wind as I was reading.
My opinion? Check out The Shadow of the Wind because that book is well worth it! And then I’ll let you know what I think of the 3rd book in the series, The Prisoner of Heaven, tomorrow!
What’s your favorite series to read?
