3. Reminding the reader of what happened in previous books in a series.
Smiled grimly.

After a long hiatus, I read the third book of a trilogy (chuckling at this due to your trilogy comment, because it holds true to this series) and the author did not reference past events. I hadn’t read the books in two years and I had no idea what was going on. Couple that with the fact the books weren’t popular enough to Google a quick summary and the fact that the author had a billion similar characters and no idea of how to edit down for simplicity and clarity… I basically had no fucking idea what was going on the entire time.

One clap, two clap, three clap, forty?

By clapping more or less, you can signal to us which stories really stand out.
