Luckily for all of you, I have two paperbacks of Wicked Abyss for lucky VBC readers. It’s a delicious book. So you’re welcome. Here’s the full blurb: This fairy tale...

Win It Wednesday: One Foot in the Grave by Jeaniene Frost

Win It Wednesday: One Foot in the Grave by Jeaniene Frost Do you ever meet another reader only to discover they haven’t read an essential book or series? It happens to me often, but this is because I’m a notorious book rec queen and want to make sure everyone gets to fall in love with every amazing series. (It’s an ambitious task, but I’m dedicated.) This weekend I met someone who had never heard of the Mercy Thompson series, and was...

The VBC team has loved every installment of this series. Southern style meets urban fantasy with the well-crafted casts...
