A Hero’s Curse

Today, I intended to post about theological poets, but that has to be postponed. I’d like my dad’s feedback on it, but he’s off traveling. Meanwhile, I introduced P.S. Broaddus just over a week ago, and now I’m ready to review the first book in his series, A Hero’s Curse (The Unseen Chronicles Book 1).
