Really good books. Very enjoyable. Well written just wish Josiah hadn't been totally beaten to a pulp in fall really like her as a character.
This is the first book I've read in this series and this author. The story, plot, characters, descriptions were all great. It kept me interested. The plot is very deceptive with great twists. A great read for anytime! I hope to read more.
