Spectacle – Rachel Vincent

Spectacle – Rachel Vincent

After the amazingness of Menagerie, I was worried that book two would not match up. Well I was both right and wrong. Right in that it was definitely a book two, with most of the plot used as a build up to the final book. Wrong in that it was […]
