Book Review – Fighting Fantasy: Eye of the Dragon

Book Review – The Golden Prince

by Rebecca Dean (Harper) ISBN 978-0-00-731572-7 As an avid reader of historical fiction, I prefer novels that tell a true story about real people. The Golden Prince falls short of that expectation, as the love story is not based on fact. However, it is still…
