#OctobeRec Fest Review #2 ~ Hounded ~ Kevin Hearne

Welcome to OctobeRec Fest. I started this as a nod to Oktoberfest (books & beer…heaven, am I right?!?) so I’ll spending the month of October reading a few of the many, many books I’ve procured thanks to you, my blogging friends.

This story covers some very dark themes, even if a lot of the action is quite light-hearted. And I don’t think the sexual fantasy part of the […]
