Top Ten Tuesday #29: Books Most In Need of a Cover Re-Design

Top Ten Tuesday is a meme created by The Broke and the Bookish. Each week a new topic is given and weeks topic is: Books Most In Need of a Cover Re-Design This hurts because Julie Kagawa is one of my favorite authors, and I love the Blood of Eden series.  But I’ve got problems with both of these covers.  The MC in this series is Asian, and the girl on the cover of The Immortal Rules is…not.  The decision to… Read more »

Reivew: The Iron Traitor by Julie Kagawa

Reivew: The Iron Traitor by Julie Kagawa

Note – This review will contain spoilers from The Lost Prince, the first book in the series.
