Love Triangles: Right v Wrong

Love triangles: the ‘right’ guy vs the ‘wrong’ guy Now I get really annoyed with the predominance of love triangles in books (it is especially prevalent in YA).

However, I had to read this given what a huge fan of this series I have become. I am […]

When I found out there was a novella about Tod I knew I had to get my hands on it. This novella used to be quite easy to find but as it was out a few years ago it isn’t online anymore. Luckily I managed to track down a copy in Soul Screamers Volume 2 (yes I bought this even though I already owned My Soul to Keep and My Soul to Steal – that is […]
