Book Review: HOW TO BE DEATH

How To Be Death - A Calliope Reaper-Jones Novel by Amber Benson | ©2012 Ace

Writer: Amber Benson Price: $7.99 Publisher: Ace Mass Market Paperback Original “I am Death” was the perfect line to conclude writer Amber Benson’s trilogy about Calliope Reaper-Jones.

Book Review: SERPENT’S STORM by Amber Benson

SERPENT'S STORM by Amber Benson
