Reading CITY OF ETERNAL NIGHT is like getting sucked into a whole new world. It’s one of those books that makes you wonder where the time went, since it flows so smoothly and effortlessly. It was a treat to revisit Harlow and Augustine, and their world full of fae politics and intrigue.

Aside from another gorgeous cover in the House of Comarre series, LAST BLOOD is a complex, beautiful, and at times heart wrenching story. LAST BLOOD had me feeling a wide range of emotions from frustration to hopefulness and excited to see every character gain some sort of closure to their storylines.
