New Vampire Books For Us To Be Obsessed With!
The Serpent and the Wings of Night by Carissa Broadbent My rating: 5/5 “So many mistakes in the end,” he choked out. “Never you.” I am obsessed with this story, and I CANNOT wait for the next one as I cannot wait to see where it is going.

The stand out for this book is the introduction of many secondary characters that I…
