I am excited to welcome author Diana Pharaoh Francis, who is celebrating the release of her first Diamond City Magic novel, Trace of Magic. Even the most powerful tracers can’t track you if the magical trace you leave behind is too old. But I can track almost anything, even dead […]

21 August 2014 Nicole 0

If you know me, you know I’m a huge (and I mean HUGE) fan of Jeaniene Frost. I’m a die-hard “Frostie”. As sad I was to see her Cat & Bones series come to a beautiful end, I was anxious/excited to read her newest series, Broken Destiny.  The Beautiful Ashes […]
