Tooooooooo short!

Although I️ love The Cartel Saga, this book was a waste of time and money it is only 2 hours. It left a lot of space that could have been utilized more efficiently!

Too short

Very riveting and you get captured in the story only for it to end and leave you open. Like a bad relationship you jut don’t get what u need. Great story amazing characters, too short.

A Short story series that could have​ been 1 book

Enjoyed getting the back story on the Diamond family's Patriarch. You're left with a cliffhanger that makes you want to listen to the next offering in the series.
