Fever (Parallon #1) by Dee Shulman

The Parallon Trilogy trailer from Dee Shulman’s website: I really liked this book.

I decided to read the first few pages of both books to help me decide and ended up going with Tsarina. I can’t remember the first time I ever learned about the Romanov’s but I do remember […]
