I did not get a chance to read the first book in The Ifs series so I had to figure a few things out while reading this book. That said, it is not necessary to read the first book first because JD Pooker goes into full detail to catch up newcomers to the story. Landon and Broden are brothers and the main characters in the story. There are several characters including wild animals that are transportation (dogs, wolves, crows), the Ifs (a small person who rides on dogs, crows, and wolves for transport, and other characters who are not paramount to the story.
The author left the ending open for another sequel. I look forward to reading it. Kids from 5th - 8th grade will appreciate this book. I received this book in exchange for an honest review. If you found this review helpful please CLICK HERE and mark yes on my review.
