    I’m reading “Miss Garrote” by Victoria Newhope. It’s about a girl spy, rat ways (a system of underground tunnels dug under Europe), a clan of the Untouchables, the descendants of Templars, and many other cool things. Very interesting book. Amazon has few chapters available.

  14. Debbie Nance says:

    I’ve been waiting and waiting for 2011 Poetry! Hope you enjoy it.
