If You Like The Hollows… Read Cassie Palmer & Dorina Basarb

If You Like The Hollows… Read Cassie Palmer & Dorina Basarb Okay this maybe cheating since I am recommending two series instead of one, but in my defense both series are by Karen Chance, are set in the same world, take place simultaneously, and have characters who crossover in both series. So really I am recommending the body of work of one author. My favorite characteristic of Kim Harrison’s The Hollow series is not only the strong female protagonist, but also...

Book Bits: Stacia Kane, Jeaniene Frost, Kim Harrison, Keri Arthur & Lauren Dane

Book Bits: Stacia Kane, Jeaniene Frost, Kim Harrison, Keri Arthur & Lauren Dane We skipped Book Bits last week because it was Thanksgiving here in the States. I hope others had a lovely holiday. Mine involved more shopping than was probably necessary (though we skipped shopping late on Thanksgiving or early-morning Black Friday madness), seeing Daniel Craig in all his Bond-y goodness in IMAX, eating more than I should have and having a Downton Abbey binge with my mom. It was a good...

Book Bits: Kelley Armstrong, Caitlin Kittredge, Kim Harrison, Kristen Callihan, Merrie Destefano and Undead Miss Manners

Book Bits: Kelley Armstrong, Caitlin Kittredge, Kim Harrison, Kristen Callihan, Merrie Destefano and Undead Miss Manners Bitten as a TV show? Maybe. A Canadian television network has ordered 13 episodes of a new scripted drama Bitten, based on — you guessed it — the Women of the Otherworld series by Kelley Armstrong. Now, you may wonder why this pleases me so much, if I live in the United States. Well, one, it’s always cool to see authors getting their works translated into other platforms, but also there...
