Allison Pang Q&A: A Sliver of Shadow, Phin the Unicorn, names and more When I saw a unicorn on the back cover of Allison Pang’s A Brush of Darkness, I though it wasn’t going to be dark enough for me. I was wrong. Not only is Allison’s series featuring fae brilliant and dark urban fantasy, I ended up adoring the miniature unicorn. I loved the book so much it made the VBC Best Books of 2011 list. Allison brings a clever plot, unique world, fascinating...

10 Characters to Make You Feel Better

10 Characters to Make You Feel Better Those who follow VBC on Twitter may know things are stressful these days here at the VBC HQ.
