What I liked about The Lost Stories
The Lost Stories tied up a bunch of the loose ends in this series. It has more adventures with Will and Halt.
The jokes and teasing are hilarious in Purple Prose.
Death of a Hero while sad, was also sweet and touching.
I love how The Lost Stories wrapped up the series. This book was a great read! 🙂
