Welcome to today's stop on The Childe/Dark Days blog tour! I'm very excited to be taking part in this fun event. A few weeks ago, the blog tour stopped by and featured my review of Dark Days. You can read that review here.  You can also read my review of the first book in the series, The Childe, here. Be sure read this entire post so you can find all the details about the tour (links, giveaways).
