BOOK REVIEW: DANGEROUS REMEDY

Every time I see a fantasy hailed as the next Six of Crows, I step cautiously. Aside from knowing the content of those books like the back of my hand, there's something special about the feel of those books as well as how the characters all work together.

BOOK REVIEW: AND THE STARS WERE BURNING BRIGHTLY

Right from the get go, I know that this was going to be a tear-jerker of a read.
