The Belles by Dhonielle Clayton evoked a visceral respond in me more than once. I was at once enchanted by all of the talk about colors, flavors, scents, and textures, and sicken by the cultural and jobs of some of the occupants of this fantasy world.
The only thing I didn’t like about the book was the ending, but only because it was a cliffhanger. The follow up book isn’t out yet.
This was the second or third time around for the Dresden Files books. These books are like a comforting television show that you put on in the background when you’re cleaning. The books are old friends.
Read them all. Do it now.
