Now Borrowing: The Murders of Molly Southbourne

I’ve been on reading restriction (thank you rude migraine disorder) for a while and it’s put a cramp in my insatiable need to read. Enter tor.com publishing novellas to save the day.

Now Borrowing: Halls of Law

Now Borrowing: Halls of Law

Rapid Fire Review: Halls of Law tells the story of a reluctant heroine with rich world building, uncomfortably recognizable gender-based issues wrapped up in a prophecy that makes this journeyman’s tale stands apart.

Now Watching: The Beguiled
