So within the books part in Amazon, I typed within the search phrases ‘circus Alex icon Russian’ and to my delight, Kiss an Angel got here up within the outcomes. I did not assume I actually wanted to learn the e book once more, however one thing about it stored bugging me, so I borrowed it a second time, and regardless of some points I had with the story and a few of the characters, it nonetheless had sufficient of one thing to get me in sufficiently to learn all of it once more.
