  1. I was insanely excited about this book, especially because of the Rose and Dimitri short story. In fact, I’ve waited so long to read it that it ended up being slightly anticlimactic, but that’s just me. The other stories are lovely as well.

  2. Finally I make it over to the post. I want this one…some of my fav authors the Caster Chronicles authors, Laini Taylor, Richelle Mead and many more I need to check out! Fantastic giveaway dear, is it U.S. only? You should specify!
