Review: Max Gladstone: Three Parts Dead – 4 stars

Posted by & filed under Reviews.

Max Gladstone: Three Parts Dead There is that time of the year when you get a book hiatus. All the favorite authors are busy re-charging or typing feverishly new masterpieces and you have absolutely nothing to read. No new werewolf stories. No spunky witches hunting evil interlanders.
