A Review of Devil’s Play by Bryony London

Devil's Play by Bryony London

One of the things that bothers me about some stories is that here is one character that is responsible for everything that happens. That’s not really a huge problem unless of course why they are doing so is never explained. What gets to me most of all however is pricing a book at a level …

Time once again for a Morrigan Aensland tribute YouTube I found to share on the Tale… Rather like the music in it and many of the images of her are just lovely too… And if you can’t see it here on the Tale: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=YBdpHQ6rQdc And, finally, one image that I really liked most of all …

Time for a review of the tenth book in the Thaumatology series by Niall Teasdale, Ancient.
