I'm a big Rachel Caine
fan, so when I heard she had a new series coming out, I had

Mr. French was a cutie. Oh, and Manny Glickman and Pansy Taylor from The Red Letter Days series
make an appearance. I loved it.
Okay, I'm officially hooked on another Rachel Caine series, because this book was a total
