Though tasked with getting one of two artifacts, Owl can’t resist...

Review: Owl and the Japanese Circus by Kristi Charish Owl and the Japanese Circus Author: Kristi Charish Reviewer: Una Rating: B+ What I’m Talking About: It is always exciting to start a new series and especially one by a new author.  I never know what to expect and that is part of the thrill and adventure of volunteering to read an ARC.  I had no idea what to expect, but what I found was a gripping and nail-biting adventure in Owl and the Japanese Circus. The story begins with Alix, though for most of the novel you know her as Owl.  She is on the run from vampires but won’t let it stop her from finding a spot...
