10 New Urban Fantasy Series You Need to Read

10 New Urban Fantasy Series You Need to Read We’ve been talking about our favorite urban fantasy series here at VBC recently. We listed 10 Urban Fantasy Series You Need to Read and 10 “Rural Fantasy” Series  with small-town settings. But we noticed that most of those series debuted in 2011 or earlier and thought some of our readers might be looking for something newer. Here are some of our favorite “new” UF series, which we’re defining as ones that...

Win It Wednesday: The Voodoo Killings by Kristi Charish

Win It Wednesday: The Voodoo Killings by Kristi Charish I love unique magic systems in fantasy. Kristi Charish brings something delightfully different to the urban fantasy genre in her Kincaid Strange series. Margaret reviewed The Voodoo Killings, and she read the book practically all at once. (High praise, y’all.) Here’s how Margaret described the worldbuilding in this book: Kristi Charish blends traditional New Orleans voodoo with other...

5 Questions with Chelsea Mueller: Soul Magic, Romance, and Cocktails

5 Questions with Chelsea Mueller: Soul Magic, Romance, and Cocktails VBC founder and HBIC Chelsea has a new book out today. It’s the second in the Soul Charmer series, and promises magic, murder, and rented souls. We also have it on good authority the heroine’s character arc is pretty epic and if you weren’t already in love with Derek, you will be now. However, since Chelsea runs this blog, we don’t review her books…because that’s a...

Win It Wednesday: Signed Book! Borrowed Souls or Rogue Souls – Winner’s Choice!

Win It Wednesday: Signed Book! Borrowed Souls or Rogue Souls – Winner’s Choice! It’s Independence Day here in the U.S. and I love this holiday. Maybe because I love fireworks. Or because barbecue. Or because I get to make really great pool party playlists. It’s a little odd having the holiday in the middle of the week, as many of us have to work on the days surrounding it. (And if I’m honest, I’m totally getting writing in today.) But we need to celebrate. We...

10 “Rural Fantasy” Series You Need to Read

10 “Rural Fantasy” Series You Need to Read A few weeks ago Chelsea posted her list of essential Urban Fantasy series. It’s a good list. I’ve read and enjoyed all of those series. But I felt like there was one glaring omission. My gateway to urban fantasy was the Sookie Stackhouse series, so any UF list I made would have started there. When I asked Chelsea about it she said that Sookie defies many typical UF conventions, first and foremost with its...
