Book Review: Dragon Spawn by Eileen Wilks

I read Dragon Spawn by Eileen Wilks a few months ago. Every since, I have been quite speechless. It is hard to describe my disappointment. I normally really look forward to this series.

(Or a separate mystery shelf.)  Instead the library put science fiction sticker on the spine and shelved the books in alphabetical order by last name. I was displeased by this arrangement.
