Clariel Review

Summary
After many, many years Clariel has finally be released. Billed as an Abhorsen’s descent to the dark side, there has been so much expectation built up about this novel, so the big question is does it meet expectations. The long and the short of it is: no.

Chelsey and Alexandra have been posting book reviews by text or video for over 5 years now. When they're not reading and writing reviews they usually have a fantasy project in queue that they're working on. You can also catch them around town at cons and expos once or twice a year.
