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. One of my close family members has a rare brain cancer — complete with experimental treatments. (He has the best doctors and is in great spirits.)

Review: Storm Born by Richelle Mead (Dark Swan #1)

Review: Storm Born by Richelle Mead (Dark Swan #1) Storm Born (Dark Swan #1) Richelle Mead Published: 2008 (Zebra) Purchase at: Book Depository or Amazon Rating (out of 5): 4 stars I’ll come out the gate saying I love Eugenie Markham, the heroine of Richelle Mead’s Dark Swan series.

Are you ready for Richelle Mead’s Iron Crowned?

Are you ready for Richelle Mead’s Iron Crowned? This last week I hit up a Richelle Mead book signing.  While the focus was the just-released Last Sacrifice, she indulged questions bout her Dark Swan and Georgina Kincaid series.

First, let me say, I realize I haven’t been reviewing the first books in series thus far. I’m going to work to rectify that soon. I will write up a review of the first Georgina Kincaid book, Succubus Blues, in the near future. I’ll try to get everyone up-to-speed on the series...
