Bradley Good day fellow fantasy author. =)


Daniel
Toni, I've added Murder in Old blood, Vengeance from Eden, Sinbad's Last Voyage, Bloodseek: The Chronicals of Riven the Heretic, book One and Walks the Shadow Trail to my to-read list.


message 3: by Linda

Linda Toni's vampire stories are fresh and original. Her species of vampire evolved as man did but they're a different branch on the tree of life!

Fantastic creatures who are overwhelmingly human as well.


message 2: by Toni

Toni Thanx. Lately, all I've been reading is old manuscripts, however!


Sandra Cox Have an excellent reading day, Toni!
