I'm currently working on a novel series and I'm wondering what the right amount of time between the Main Character getting sabotaged by the main Antagonist and the return/revenge of the Main Character? Currently the sabotage happens about 1/4 of the way into the second book and the return happens near the end. It ends in a cliffhanger that leads into the third book where the revenge takes place. I'm wondering if I should stretch out the time between the two, maybe expand on what happens to the Main Character and those left under the Main Antagonist's rule after the backstabbing. I want to build the suspense right without having the whole thing climax early in the third book and have nowhere to go from there.
