    When I first finished this book, I only gave it a 4 star rating. However, after having 24 hours to reflect, I think I want to increase that to a 5 star. It’s definitely my favorite book in the series. It’s full of drama, mystery, intrigue, scandal, and everything else that makes this series so good. A certain part had me sobbing, which is hard for me to do when I listen to audiobooks.

    The saga again continues, with many births, deaths and marriages. However, the influenza epic brings home what the current world situation is. We just have to hope that is the only thing that this series mimics with the current world turmoil.
