Review | The Return of Cassandra Todd

My Review:
My favorite word of the week this week, seems to be WOW!  But this is another WOW book!  I had never read anything from this author prior to this book, but he writes such a great story, you will not want to put it down.  This story was captivating.  I found myself reading late into the night to finish the book, I just could not put it down.  The story was great, the characters were believable and you just wanted to help them in their journey.  The end of the book had me in tears, which is always a good thing for me.  I love a book that makes me cry!  You must read this book!  5 stars!
