Review: The Trials (The Spell Saga Book 4) by Cari Z

Rating: 4 🌈 The Trials is the fourth and looks to be the final story in Cari Z’s Spell Saga series.

And that comes with additional expectations.… Continue reading Review: The Trials (The Spell Saga Book 4) by Cari Z

It brings her characters great emotional growth, allowing for betrayals, thought provoking moments of ambivalence of the nature of the work that a Master of Thaumaturge finds… Continue reading Review: The Tank (The Spell Saga Book 3) by Cari Z
