Shades of Doon

On 12/1 Bekah wrote: Shades of Doon was everything I could’ve hoped for in a continuation- more epic adventure, adorable romance, and breath-taking suspense.

Siren's Fury

On 6/10 Bekah wrote: THIS BOOK. I am sitting here trying to find the right words to explain how much I loved it. Nym. The five kingdoms. Eogan. The Uathuils. Princess Rasha.
