Sue's review:This is a new author for me and I was really impressed with how much I enjoyed this novella. Looking forward to reading more of her books in the future.
I loved the way that the author described Verona and all that she went through. The story itself is heartbreaking but it wraps you up and makes you want to keep reading. I don't write spoilers - so I refuse to say exactly what all happens but it is an awesome book!!!
I received a copy of Scales in exchange for an honest review.
