Exclusive Excerpt & Giveaway: The Unlikeable Demon Hunter by Deborah Wilde

Exclusive Excerpt & Giveaway: The Unlikeable Demon Hunter by Deborah Wilde When someone says Buffy meets Bridesmaid in their book blurb, I take notice. Words like that get you put on the to-be-read pile ASAP. Such is the case with Deborah Wilde’s The Unlikeable Demon Hunter, which released just this Tuesday.

Win It Wednesday: American Gods by Neil Gaiman

Win It Wednesday: American Gods by Neil Gaiman I am all kinds of nerdy excited for the television adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s American Gods. It’s not just the cast, which includes Ricky Whittle (a.k.a. Lincoln from The 100) as Shadow Moon and Ian McShane as Mr. Wednesday. The look, the feel, the timing is right for a revisit of this great fantasy novel. Not too long ago, I did a re-read of American Gods on audio. It has a full-cast...

Win It Wednesday: Ever After by Kim Harrison

Win It Wednesday: Ever After by Kim Harrison How many of you have read the Hollows series by Kim Harrison? It’s a great urban fantasy series, and actually one I found got stronger and stronger the longer the series ran. With that in mind, I have a copy of Ever After by Kim Harrison. It’s the 11th novel in the Hollows series (sometimes you’ll see it called the Rachel Morgan series, too), and is from another expanding point in the...
