I'm about 60% through this book and found out at the time i finished chapter one it was a series. I was encouraged to continue cause it started out sooo slow. Now I'm getting through it and true it did pick up spead, and I'm this far through I will not leave it unfinished, however I just don't know if I will continue the series which worries me. I usually have made up my mind by now... Guess we will see where it leaves me in the end.
