Johnson, Jean: Hellfire (Theirs Not to Reason Why) (2013)

I started reading Hellfire and was immediately engrossed in the world of Ia and her Damned. Annoying really when a novel is this good.

The ending was a sort of … Continue reading Johnson, Jean: Hellfire (Theirs Not to Reason Why) (2013)

Monk, Devon: Magic on the Line (Allie Beckstrom) (2011)

I wonder if they used the same method for Devon Monk’s covers as they have for Jean Johnson. Jean Johnson was kind enough to explain that her publishers had gotten the photographer and model together for a session and taken tons of pictures. Pictures from this session are what the publisher uses to design the … Continue reading Monk, Devon: Magic on the Line (Allie Beckstrom) (2011)
