~ eARC Review ~

Fiction | Sci-Fi | Murder Mystery

Blurb:

From idyllic small towns to claustrophobic urban landscapes, Mallory Viridian is constantly embroiled in murder cases that only she has the insight to solve.

At first her new existence is peacefully quiet…and markedly devoid of homicide.

The Grimoire Saga

The most amazing thing has happened! I discovered this series back in college when I perhaps needed magic the most and it whisked me away on a fantastical journey that has kept close to my thoughts ever since. I don’t collect books for the sake of collecting them and only afford to buy physical copies when it’s something I want to read over and over again. This being a special series to me, it was something I wanted to try and collect. For the longest time I only had the eBooks and I began a hunt for first editions which was much more difficult a quest than I’d anticipated. Finally eBay raised my hopes only for an unfortunate basement flood to dash them and then once again magic struck, the magic of an author and her book community. Keep reading this post to see what exactly arrived in my mailbox as well as for more info on the series (no spoilers!) and the author!
