Review: Black by Catherine Winters

Black Author: Catherine Winters Reviewer: Gikany & Una Rating: D What We’re Talking About: Black is the first novel in the trilogy entitled Josephine.

Shadows & Dreams Author: Alexis Hall Reviewer: B. Rating: A- What I’m Talking About: Kate’s back! I liked her a great deal while reading the first story in the series, Iron & Velvet, but she’s even better this time around.
