  1. Just finished book two and thoroughly enjoyed it. Glad Ash’s secret is out, must have been exhausting for her worrying about being discovered! Wish you’d got rid of sneaky Kurt though. He is no good. 😉
    I also listen to your podcast and could definitely hear your ‘voice’ (esp. your wry humour) in the book, made me smile.
    Off to devour Breath of the Dragon ….
