The Immortal City – Book Review

The Magicians of Venice Book 1 by Amy Kuivalainen
Published on: September 19, 2019

The Immortal City is fantasy/mystery story set in modern times, but focusing on the lost city of Atlantis. It didn’t work 100% for me, but it was still a nice book that I believe some will really enjoy.
