Dreams Made Flesh by A. Bishop

1 June 2008 Jackie 5

After reading Anne Bishops Black Jewels trilogy, and loving it, I went looking for more. The next novel in the series is Dreams Made Flesh and it’s actually made up of four different stories. This novel could stand on its own, but it does make references to the first two […]
