Omg I loved the book it's so amazing and full of cliff hangers. I wish there was another book that would discuss what happens 50 years into the future about Donn and Lina's children!

Loved the whole series but 1 thing

I wish you hadn't put about like what happened in the future because like now it will be harder for you to make another book about this series but I know one way you can you can like make a book if like an event affected that future and they don't have that future anymore or like maybe how they started dating or something
