Strange Grace Reviews
"They made this bargain with the devil: Every seven years their best boy is sent into the forest from sundown to sunrise, on the night of the Slaughter Moon. He will live or die on his own mettle, and for his sacrifice the devil blesses Three Graces."

Excuse me... how dare this book be so perfect??? If you’re looking for an atmospheric, spooky read this October, THIS IS IT, PEOPLE. Also, polyamory. I love everything about this book.
