Alpha Showdown 2012 Round 7: Eric Northman vs. Tohrment

Alpha Showdown 2012 Round 7: Eric Northman vs. Tohrment My gut says Round 7 of the Alpha Showdown 2012 is going to be another close call. Two vampires — always favorites here at VBC — and they both have huge followings. Things will get bloody. I’m okay with that. Today we see Eric Northman, the Viking vampire from Charlaine Harris’ ultra popular Sookie Stackhouse books, take on Tohrment, one of the beloved members of J.R. Ward’s...

Why I’m Team Eric [H&H post]

Fans of Charlaine Harris’ books (now you’re thinking about Dead to the World) and True Blood may want to read this one.

Love letter to Eric Northman (Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse series)

Love letter to Eric Northman (Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse series) From VBC: It’s hard not like a ruthless and devoted Viking vampire. Just ask Fiktshun, who wrote the Character Love Letter to him. Like me she can’t help but want Sookie to always pick Eric over Bill in Charlaine Harris’ Sookie Stackhouse series. Plus, he’s a hottie to the point the closest they could get to play him on TV was the jaw-droppingly delicious Alexander Skarsgard. Read...

Guest Post & Giveaway: Kelly’s top 6 favorite shifters Here’s the deal, readers: I like shifter books, too. I know. Shocking.

Issuing True Blood an ultimatum over at H&H

Issuing True Blood an ultimatum over at H&H Last month, I re-read Charlaine Harris’ Dead to the World. It’s my favorite book in the series (and for many of you, as well), and I was nervous to see it adapted to television this summer on True Blood. Find out how I think they’re doing and just what the HBO show will need to do to keep me happy in my first post for Heroes and Heartbreakers: True Blood Ultimatums: Sex or Plot,...

Regardless if you’re a fan of the TV show, too, we want to chat about the novel. This month’s group read gave us Sookie Stackhouse becoming more ingrained in the supernatural world,...
