Lucia St. Clair Robson - The Tokaido Road
Guys, this is gonna get long. Isn't it odd how it's the easiest thing in the world to talk about a book you didn't enjoy? I could write endlessly about how Kristen Britain dropped the ball and also an actual deuce with her second Green Riders book, about my...
