Familiar - M.L. Rhodes This is one of those books I bought on someone's recommendation. It's not something I would have picked at all because I don't do magic if I can help it but I've got to say Emrys is one of the sweetest characters I've read in a while. I wanted to sit on his shoulder and watch him. The action was well written and the passion was classic Rhodes...and that's a good thing. ML Rhodes seems to be able to control the urge to go over-the-top and get silly.
