Why does Bran look like that? He isn't some big-headed built hunk. He's everyman, average young guy, no one would believe to look at him that he's pow ...more

Death's Daughter (Calliope Reaper-Jones, #1)

It's really a 2.5, but I just couldn't give it my average/3 rating. The main character is a wise-ass, but not clever. As much as I hate to do Buffy co ...more
