Fortunately, Anna’s dashing fanged companion Finn Palmeroy helps her fend off the attack, but not before their plane crash lands in the forest hundreds of miles from civilization. Great, now she’s stranded with a priceless tome and a rakish vampire whose bedtime is fast approaching. Why does everyone want this book so badly, anyway? Anna just wants to get it to Jane before Finn decides to turn her into dinner-or sweep her off her feet. Okay, the second option is really tempting. But they’re not out of the woods yet…

  2. Oh, I’ve always wanted to read Radiance! I heard really good things about it. I haven’t gotten to it this year but hopefully this 2016. Eidolon will be out by then so I wouldn’t have to wait long for it. Also really excited for Night Study!

    • That’s what I’m kind of hoping! While I love Armstrong’s paranormal stories, I’d like to see her do another series along the lines of Nadia Stafford. So, I’m keeping my fingers cross that this one will be non-paranormal.
