  1. The Beast of Talesend is literally the only one I've read on this list. WHICH IS SHAMEFUL. Because I've deeeesperately been wanting to read ALL the others. Except I've never heard of Iridescent, but it sounds awesome too. O_O


    My favorite indie reads are probably The Beast of Talesend, The Reluctant Godfather, and the Ilyon Chronicles. Annnnd probably a million others I'm not thinking of. XD


    1. The Beast of Talesend is so great. :D *still has not read the sequel but really needs to*

      AHH! The Reluctant Godfather was so much fun! I've been seeing the Ilyon Chronicles all over Goodreads and totally need to add those to my TBR. They look really good!

      Awwwww! *blushes* Thank you so much! :)

    2. TT_TT I haven't read ANY of these!! But The Beast of Talesend and The Blood Race are both at the top of my list!!!
