Last season’s storyline kept book fans like myself guessing, “what will happen next?” Since the previous season ended on some major cliffhangers, I can’t even imagine what the writers have in store for fans next season. Will Season 2 follow the books or have unique storylines? Will there be Clizzy or Climon? Dominic’s spoilers have me rereading City of Ashes trying cope from the lack of answers!
