Book Review: Enchanted by K.K. Allen

A Modern Take on Ancient Mythology

The Summer Solstice: Enchanted by K.K. Allen
The writing was great and engaging, which is difficult for me to say about some YA titles. The premise is interesting and was a take on mythology I hadn’t seen before. I honestly, really …

Double your pleasure!

What could be better than Serge Henir? Seeing double! Now that’s a vision test!
