Try Ravages, Again (Please…)

021

This page is for those who gave up after seeing the mess of the first chapter, or those who are discouraged by the sheer length and reputed difficulty of the series. In order to partly address such concerns, I shall be listing a few interesting chapters that may be used as alternative points of entry into the world of Ravages. While the standard linear approach of reading the chapters in order is still the main approach that I recommend, methinks it is also possible to enjoy the series in medias res, given some appropriate chapters that are relatively ‘closed’, as it were. Be warned though that ‘spoilers’ abound in the pages ahead.

All I really ask for is that, well, people try Ravages, again (please…)
