Malcolm & Isabel

When Julie Anne Long wrapped up her much adored Pennyroyal Green series with The Legend of Lyon Redmond, she did a rather odd thing. The final pages of the book--a DIK for us--leapt forward in time to an epilogue set in the year that book was published (2015). Readers suddenly found themselves readi ...
