Wild Seed – Book Review

As with many of the books I read, I found Wild Seed randomly on Amazon and I’m glad I did! I had no idea what a prolific writer Octavia E.

And while this didn’t make my “regret reading list”, it was...

Ok, now that you’re back, in The Girl in the Tower, we are led by Vasya, a young Russian noble girl with the heart of a wild thing and wisdom well beyond...
