Midnight Sun Chapter 1 Part 2

Midnight Sun Chapter 1 Part 1

Bree Part 16
Riley mentions that there’s only seven members of this other clan. Which is fine I suppose, it’s quite technically true. After all, Bella never really counts as one of the Cullens. She’s certainly not vey useful until the author bestows … Continue reading
Bree Part 15
When last I had to stop reading this dreck dawn had come, everyone was home and Bree was still wearing blast goggles that prevented her from seeing the plot let alone the very obvious. With Riley back things can really … Continue reading

Bree Part 14
So in between all the recaps I had a moment of clarity. See, Otis never mentioned exactly how big a deal fire was for the vampires. It was kind of hinted at but never once did she make it out … Continue reading
