  • Review of Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor

    Days of Blood & Starlight by Laini Taylor is the second book in the trilogy begun with Daughter of Smoke & Bone. This series is difficult to categorize more specifically than falling within the fantasy genre.

  • Magic Bites Special EditionSpecial Edition of Magic Bites by Ilona Andrews

    On December 31, a trade paperback/ebook special edition of Magic Bites, the first Kate Daniels book by Ilona Andrews will be released.
