We Have Always Been Here – And So Shall They Remain

Unfortunately for you, the book I am about to review doesn't come out for a couple weeks. But, I am so excited to talk about it that I had to make sure it didn't fly under the radar. It's one of our Dark Horse debuts of the second half of the year and you should…

The Space Between Two Deaths – Uncomfortably Enjoyable
