I can't get fire country right now will it be available on kindle at the beginning of February ?


message 13: by Lola (new)

Lola (lolasreviews) | 563 comments I think 1 february is the release date, so it is correct that you can't get it yet.

Bethany | 171 comments Sounds like a fun challenge :)

A- Alex The Holders
B- Becca The Holders
C- Carter The Farm
D- Dexter This Lullaby
E- Ellie You Against Me
F-
G- Graylee Entangled
H- Hazael Days of Blood and Starlight

K- Kyle Significance
L- Liam The Darkest Minds
M- Marcus The Indigo Spell
N- Neil The Seven Devils

T- Triktapic Elfin
U-
V- Violet Red and Her Wolf
W- Wolf Scarlet
X- Ixander Days of Blood and Starlight
Y- Yasri Days of Blood and Starlight
Z- Ziri Days of Blood and Starlight

That's it for now. I can't for the life of me think of a character that starts with 'U'. I feel like I'm slightly coping out by using so many names from DofB&S, but that book is a horde of unique character names. I want to try and have a different book for each letter, so as the year progresses, I will work towards that.
