I always worry about sequels. It’s especially hard when you liked the first book so much, as I did The Youngest Templar: Keeper of the Grail. What if the characters change? What if I don’t like the outcome? And the first book in Michael Spradlin’s series ended on a perilous cliffhanger–will all of my favorite characters survive?
As it turns out, I needn’t have worried.
