I won this book a while back, but again, it was before I started marking the books so I could remember when I reviewed them where they came from. So whoever I got this from, thanks!!  It has been 2 years though since I read the 2nd book in the series, Fever, so of course […]

FINALLY!!!  I feel like it took forever to get through this book.  And not because it was hard to read, but because I just never seemed to have time to read.  I remember that I really enjoyed the first book, Incarnate, but once again, it just seemed to take me forever to get around to […]

I have to first say thanks to Sourcebooks Fire for allowing me to read an e-galley of this. I even was approved on both Netgalley and Edelweiss.  I guess I didn’t realize that I’d asked at both sites, but I did.  And I’m glad I did, because I really enjoyed it. The main character, our […]
