Review by Dawn ThomasPrint Length: 308 pagesPublisher: Coliloquy, LLCTeens & Young Adult When I received this book I was so excited to begin reading it. I was immediately drawn to the cover image of a beautiful woman with white blonde hair peeking out between lilies. This is my first “choice” book.

The spellspinners are all very beautiful and the warlocks age quickly. They believe these…
