Saturday Conversions: Saying Farewell to a Series

Saturday Conversions: Saying Farewell to a Series Saying Goodbye In the past two weeks I’ve had to say farewell to two of my favorite series. Meljean Brook capped of her marvelous Guardian series with the eighth title, Guardian Demon, and Philippa Ballantine ended her epic fantasy Book of the Order series with the fourth book, Harbinger.

Review: Guardian Demon by Meljean Brook

Review: Guardian Demon by Meljean Brook Guardian Demon Author: Meljean Brook Reviewer: Twimom227 Rating: A+, 5 Stars What I’m Talking About: The end is finally here. After waiting almost two years for Ms. Brook’s grand finale to her marvelous Guardian series, I started Guardian Demon with mixed feelings.

I am happy to report that the total number of books read this year was 97 books, up 33 books from last year! My original goal was to read one book per week, but up’d the goal to 65 books (one more than 2011). I blew that goal out of the water! I had also...
