Books for January and February

by Michael on Wednesday, March 12th, 2008

Hopefully posting about books every couple of months will work out better than the once a year method. Heart of Stone (The Negotiator Trilogy, Book 1) by C.E. Murphy [3.5/5] I liked a lot of things about this one, including the world-building and Catie’s prose. I wasn’t as fond of the occasional parts of the […]
