Lets’s laugh out loud always difficult for a book to pull offand pretend that my life never was and never will be like this one. ARGH I am so mad Most people, especially after some of Kultgen’s previous works, may accuse him of misogyny magriage, at the very least, favoring the males of his cast over the females.
