ARC Review – Demon’s Curse by Alexa Egan

Mini(ARC)-Review – Entwined by Kristen Callihan

Well, it’s official:  Kristen Callihan can do no wrong.  I love everything about her Darkest London series (which I have yet to review on the blog but I will, I promise!) – from the period setting, to the supernatural and paranormal elements she weaves in so seamlessly, to the strong… Read more »

Guest Post – Fortitude Scott’s Top Ten Horror Films for Halloween!

  One of my favorite reads this year was ML Brennan’s debut, Generation V.  I think part of what won me over was Fortitude Scott, her film theory graduate student-vampire-hero with smarts and a self-depracating sense of humor.  I knew Fort could give us some good recommendations for films to… Read more »
