Writing and Presentation-4/5
Overall- 4 out of 5 stars
The title wasn’t satisfactory as I couldn’t fathom the gist of it , though the foremost assumption was to maintain an uniformity in the naming of the next book in the Crossroad series.
Few editing errors occur in the book, including the use of “End” instead of “En” that signifies the nickname for Enora, readers can brush that aside in order to enjoy the book.
