I'm going to be honest here, because if I'm not, why would you read this, I had some very, very low expectations going into this book. I read the Beautiful Darkness series all the way through. And the first one was pretty good, but I didn't love where they ...

*Spoiler Free Review -- Firstlife by Gena Showalter*
First, I have not read anything else by Gena Showalter. I've heard some pretty great things about her other books, and I own them, but this one just drew me in with the cover and the synopsis, so I went for it first. I do plan to read her other series, and ...
