Mini Book Reviews (Seasons of Glass and Iron, Gods of Jade and Shadow)

Just a quick post with some mini-reviews to add to today, because I loved both of these stories (one a novel, one a short story) and wanted to share my love for them with you now rather than waiting for a day without a scheduled post. Also, I thought the two titles played nicely off… Continue reading Mini Book Reviews (Seasons of Glass and Iron, Gods of Jade and Shadow)
