Etched in Bone

The end of a much loved series can be a little bit bitter sweet at times.  But an end to something special always is.  You want the story to be whole but at the same time you don’t want to say goodbye to the world you have discovered and explored and the characters that have … More Etched in Bone

Someone Like You
