Beautiful Creatures (Caster Chronicles, #1)

Apart from deus ex machina (so it's 4½ ★), this was a brilliant read. Killing off a much-loved character is a brave thing to do and in this instance i...more

Green Eyed Demon is a major improvement over its predecessor. I laughed, I cried, I sniggered at the dirty, filthy orgy. Yes, you read correctly.
