After pondering this novella for a day, I decided to give it 3-stars and NOT continuing the series.
I am not saying that this is a bad story but I think my biggest issue is that the original works are called "Trilogy"; and as much as the ending of the third book being heartbreaking, I thought it was amazing (I 5-starred that one) and it left deep impact.
So in that sense, I had say 'Goodbye' to Steven de Selby, his friends and to this world of Death. I admitted that I picked this novella up because of curiosity, but probably because I already let this world go, it was weird reading about Steven's return. Not to mention that the way this story was constructed -- with a couple of different perspectives (

I think this might be a set-up for continuing the series;
. But like I said, I already said my goodbye to this world 2.5 years ago. I think I prefer to keep it that way.
