eSequels allows you to find the newest title by your favorite author or spot a title that you may have missed. eSequels lists the most popular series, so you can discover a new author or rediscover an enjoyable series of years past. The database also gives brief annotations that describe each title without “giving away” any surprise endings. Last, but most important for some readers, eSequels lists the novels in the correct reading sequence so you can start at the beginning, rather than blunder into the middle of “Act III.”
