I've given this a B+ at AAR, so that's 4.5 stars.

4.5 WHY IS THIS SERIES NOT COMPLETE STARS

So last year I stumbled upon this wonderful series ( Hazard and Somerset Pretty Pretty Boys ) and honestly it was one of the best reading experiences of my life. I love reading a series BACK TO BACK and Gregory Ashe ticked all my boxes!

I'm a long-time Midwesterner. I've lived in Chicago, Bloomington (IN), and Saint Louis, my current home. Aside from reading and writing (which take up a lot of my time), I'm an educator.

While I enjoy reading across many genres, my two main loves are mystery and speculative fiction. I used to keep a list of favorite books, but it changes so frequently that I've given up. I'm always looking for reco
