The Book Tart episode 34 Review of Lanie Jordan’s YA Breed of Envy + Bonus character skit

I absolutely positively love Lanie Jordan’s young adult series! I would say for ages 14-101 😛 I love urban fantasy and I got sucked into her Breed Chronicles world and I adore her heroine Jade! I made a vlog review for her brand new book Breed of Envy and then I put on a lab coat and fauxmo’d my hair and dragged the Baron of Books into helping me out via the phone to make a character skit. Enjoy!

Breed of Innocence is a young adult novel by Lanie Jordan. But <g> I know lots of adults who read YA and teens who don’t stick with young adult fiction… Really, it’s all about the story. And this is a good one. I loved this book!  Jade is a very relatable heroine. I enjoyed her thought process and how she looked at situations.
