The Survivors: Point of Origin by Amanda Havard

Kelly’s Review
Holy cow! Amanda Havard has done it again, and this time Book 2 is better than the first!! I¬†love these characters (especially Everett!!), and am in a need-to-know¬†more frenzy now.

I ended up being wrong about most of them! Amanda Havard takes you through history and mythology and the supernatural all in one¬†book and it is fascinating. …
