Second book of the series in the bag, and I don’t really know what to think. Honestly, the title of this book tells you all you need to know about the story line it’s going to take. The Return is about the return of our protagonist to the world of the living. For whatever reason, this didn’t really feel like a portion of the main story, but more along the lines of an OVA, something the that bridges to stories together. To be honest, not a lot happened. There was a lot of talking and not a lot of doing. At the current moment, without having seen anything about the last book, I’m not sure this book is necessary to read. It was convoluted with no real focus. There was a religious aspect that was used in a way that I felt was problematic it a way that I cannot exactly describe. You would have to read it to understand honestly. For now, you can go without reading this book, if it is necessary to understand the last book in the trilogy, I’ll let you know.
