    This genre of books had been out of my comfort zone, I m not exactly sure where my interest came from, maybe it was from the fact that they are supernatural, with awesome powers I only dream of I m really sorry life got in the way of me reading this, but like the last one of hers I read, it was awesome and I will continue to read her books.I received a free copy of this book via Booksprout and am voluntarily leaving a review.
