Quick Thoughts

Well, this was dark…and I loved it. Shocking~ I really didn’t know what I was getting myself into with this one other than the fact that two of my best friends have read the entire series and highly recommended it. I knew it was going to be dark and quirky and it really lived up to that expectation. I’m definitely interested in continuing with this series! Time for volume 2!
