Exclusive Excerpt: Lost Souls by Chelsea Mueller

Exclusive Excerpt: Lost Souls by Chelsea Mueller I’m very excited to say Lost Souls (Soul Charmer #3) is out today. Most of you are aware this is my—Chelsea, the HBIC at VBC—book. This series packs in all my favorite things, which means it makes sense to share it here at VBC. And now with the first major story arc closing (and, yes, there’s another arc coming for books four, five, and six), I’m even more in love. If you like your books gritty, like your...

Review: Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand

Review: Sawkill Girls by Claire Legrand Sawkill Girls Claire Legrand Published: Oct. 2, 2018 (Katherine Tegen) Purchase: Book Depository or Amazon Review Source: Purchased Reviewed by: Chelsea Rating (out of 5): 4.5 stars Unapologetic characters have long been my favorite. I want to read about characters with flaws, who are broken, but trying. Sawkill Girls gave me that in more ways than I expected. There are three points of view in the book,...

Win It Wednesday: Polaris Rising by Jessie Mihalik

Win It Wednesday: Polaris Rising by Jessie Mihalik I’m pretty sure none of the VBC crew have been subtle about how much we enjoyed Jessie Mihalik’s debut Polaris Rising, but in case you missed it: WE LOVED IT AND AMY GAVE IT FIVE STARS. Seriously. In her review Amy actually said: I absolutely loved Polaris Rising from beginning to end. The pacing was spot on with thrilling moments perfectly interspersed with the calmer more contemplative moments of...

Win It Wednesday: Signed, Advanced Copy of Lost Souls by Chelsea Mueller

Win It Wednesday: Signed, Advanced Copy of Lost Souls by Chelsea Mueller The third book in Chelsea Mueller’s Soul Charmer series comes out in a month. A month, y’all. That’s my book. I always try to be upfront about this part. 🙂 Lost Souls brings a big punch of soul magic and even bigger changes at the Soul Charmer’s emporium. It’s always weird talking about your own books, though, so I’ll tell you that Kelly from Reading the Paranormal says: “Gem City is dangerous and deadly...

VBC’s Best Books of 2018: V.E. Schwab, Ilona Andrews, Nalini Singh & more!

VBC’s Best Books of 2018: V.E. Schwab, Ilona Andrews, Nalini Singh & more! Assembling our annual Best Books list is always a challenge, but I’m going to be honest this year was easier. Our team had really strong favorites this year. There were books that spoke to us, that we flashed in everyone’s faces until they’d buy the book, too. Sure there were some series enders (Kate Daniels), but we had some remarkable debuts this year that captivated us—and we hope you’ll add them to...

Must-Read Urban Fantasy Series that Bring the Sexy

Must-Read Urban Fantasy Series that Bring the Sexy Urban fantasy can be aligned with the old-school police procedural style—think Harry Dresden, early Anita Blake books, The Hollows—solving supernatural crimes. Over time the genre has expanded, and while I still love a good gumshoe urban fantasy, as the genre has grown it’s pulled in the best from other worlds. It’s slipped to the crime end, it’s sucked in small-town mysteries (hey, Charlaine Harris!),...
