A teacher introduced me to a book last year (she's done this before and I introduced her to others) and it took some time for me to get to reading it and I did that last month. I loved it so much, I went and purchased the entire series of books and just finished the last one today. It's the Black Jewels series of books by Anne Bishop. Loved it so much that it's probably my second favorite series of books. I know I've heard that a lot of people don't like them, but they really connected with me and I loved all the main characters. Can't wait for the next book to come out next year!
