Our customer reviews

I came across Obernewtyn by chance on book depository and it was an okay book so I decided to get the next one. I have never been so addicted to a series in my life! The first book is good but the rest are even better, its such a well thought out story and is just amazing. Elspeth is easily my all time favourite heroin.show more
