Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 5: Charles Cornick vs. Vlad

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 5: Charles Cornick vs. Vlad It’s all about the veterans in Round 5 of the Alpha Showdown. Neither of today’s alpha characters have won the battle before, but they both have fervent fanbases. Will this be their year? Charles Cornick from Patricia Briggs’ Alpha and Omega series is a powerful werewolf. Jeaniene Frost’s Vlad from the Night Prince series, though, is that Vlad. The ancient vampire has plenty of...

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 4: Slade vs. Gin Blanco

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 4: Slade vs. Gin Blanco This year brought the fresh meat to the Alpha Showdown. We had some first timers battle one another in Round 1, but this time out we have a newbie taking on a veteran. The vampire Slade from Teresa Gabelman’s The Protectors series is new to VBC, but his fans came out big time in the nomination rounds. Can this vampire take on one of our favorite assassins? Gin Blanco is a certified badass, and she...

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 3: Kate Daniels vs. Bones

Alpha Showdown 2015 Round 3: Kate Daniels vs. Bones We told you from the start that the Alpha Showdown would be brutal. We’re only three matches in, and we’ve already had to make tough choices. Round 2 is still open, and it’s very close between Jane and Barrons. Kate Daniels isn’t scared of a vampire, but we doubt Bones is scared of anything. He’s battled some heavy hitters before. In an alternate universe, these two would...

Giveaway: Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris

Giveaway: Midnight Crossroad by Charlaine Harris The first week of May has long been my Charlaine Harris week. For years it was when I got my annual Sookie Stackhouse fix. (Okay, we all know I was there for Eric Northman, too.) After that series ended, I wondered what I would read that week. Luckily, Charlaine’s new Midnight, Texas series came around. Last year, we got our first taste of the quaint Texas town with more than its fair share of magic...

If You Like Night Huntress…Read Jane Jameson

If You Like Night Huntress…Read Jane Jameson A recent Molly Harper binge got me thinking again about the differences between urban fantasy and paranormal romance. Ultimately, I don’t think it really matters. Read what you like. Who cares what they call it? But I’m still a word nerd so I’m compelled to contemplate. Harper’s Jane Jameson series falls into that awkward space between UF and PNR (VBC’s review of Nice Girls Don’t Have Fangs)....
