5 out of 5 stars!
It was modern and still had the ancientness that you'd want.

  1. I like your reviews~
    but could I add that you should do what time in history it is?
    because I was lost for a moment there.

    but on another note..I like your blog! you read all sorts of books so I can know if I want to read them~
    cool keep on blogging~


  2. Racheal:
    Thank you for you honesty!
    Yes I suppose that comment I made at the end could be confusing.It is set in modern times
    and he pulled it off very well bringing in old and new.Yes I usually come out with at least 5 or more good looking books at the Library.Sierra

I'd love to hear about it =)
