Welcome to Red London with V.E. Schwab

Welcome to Red London with V.E. Schwab Welcome to Red London, and the start of V.E. Schwab’s tour for A Darker Shade of Magic. Before we get to the good stuff—a quick question with the author and an excellent giveaway—I want to say VBC is super excited about this book. It’s got magic and smuggling and underhanded deeds and a protagonist we love. We’ll have a review later on (the novel releases Feb. 24), but just add this...

Well, after what was probably a lot of online begging, Rachel’s decided to give us more...

Regan Summers on Supernatural, Sleepy Hollow and Buffy [Guest Post & Giveaway]

Regan Summers on Supernatural, Sleepy Hollow and Buffy [Guest Post & Giveaway] There are so many good paranormal, fantasy, and sci fi shows on TV right now.
