Sky Without Stars (System Divine #1) – Jessica Brody, Joanne Rendell

Sky Without Stars (System Divine #1) – Jessica Brody, Joanne Rendell

I’m just going to hit the ground running here by saying that this is now one of my favorite books of all time. I honestly don’t even know how I’m supposed to review this?? Other than to just do my usual fangirl flail and hope I properly…
