Lost

My review is specifically for the audiobook.

Enshadowed (Nevermore, #2)

Wondrous Strange (Wondrous Strange, #1)

I did like this book quite a bit. As Ann Love explains, it does contain some original ideas and a solid basis in Celtic legend. That said, I had one m...more

The Haunted (The Hollow, #2)

Shadow Unit 1

I was greatly entertained by this short book. The debt to Criminal Minds is rather obvious, but it never gets too annoying. I'm not sure that I'll rea...more
