Book Review:  First Daughter by Susan Kaye Quinn

by CarrieS | October 24 | Friday | 1 Comments

I liked the first book in Susan Kaye Quinn’s Dharian Affairs trilogy so much that I immediately binge read the next two books.  The first book is Third Daughter, and as you may guess the next two are, in this order, Second Daughter and First Daughter.  I felt that the… read more »
