Zara's Curse by Andrew Domonkos - A Book Review:
A short review of the book Zara's Curse, by Andrew Domonkos. Zara's Curse is a fun new vampire romance. This book is irreverent, offbeat, and wholly amusing. Check out my review!
Before diving right in to the pool of this mystifying series, let me just mention for the readers' benefit that it is a futuristic book that features technology far beyond our normal everyday imaginations. Not only is the series about the future, it is more specifically about space and time. The universe, or space for that matter, is endless and limitless and the technology we have today confirms that our space shuttles cannot progress much if they continue to move in a straight line.
