Tanner (Prentor Book 2) by Mona Hanna
Tanner (Prentor Book 2) by Mona Hanna
A continuation of the Prentor series of witchcraft novels.

The love triangle between Mark, Sasha and Tanner is well done, and the overall narrative is a decent one that flows reasonably well.

The simplicity of the language and story seems to imply that this is a young adult novel, but the depiction of the relationships between the couples argues that that wasn't the intention.

4.0 out of 5 stars Gentle romance, 2 May 2013
