Resenhas

I had to deduct half a star because of the introduction of some elements (I don't want to give spoilers), since for me "Shades of Grey" was a perfect book on its own.

I have read this twice, and love it so much. My favorite part is when they go to see Richard III, and the audience participates with the cast. It's such a fun, well written book!

This one was much happier than The Well of Lost Plots. I'm so glad I read it!

A wonderful read. World-building- and character-driven in a nice a laidback way.
