Ink and Bone – Lisa Unger

This book was received through NetGalley in exchange of a fair review First off, this psychological/ psychic novel shares it title with a book published only a year ago by Rachel Caine – different genres, but still I wish it were not so since the one that comes out second will have to fend off unwarranted speculations. Unwarranted because anyone who reads Lisa’s book will … Continue reading Ink and Bone – Lisa Unger
