A semi-ranty review of Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman, including a (sort of) mini historical lesson

“Questions are answered not when you want an answer but when the time for answers is right.” That quote is right … because no question was ever answered in this book.

Perhaps I had high expectations for… Continue reading A semi-ranty review of Legacy of Kings by Eleanor Herman, including a (sort of) mini historical lesson
