Badass Book Review: Folsom by Tarryn Fisher & Willow Aster

“Words are a powerful weapon and they never die.”
Folsom has been hard for me to review. I didn’t leave this book feeling like I’d reached the end. Cliffhangers are brutal and Folsom is no exception – but I still have plenty to say about this exciting new series!
