An Interview with M.L. Brennan, Author of Generation V

These days, books find their way onto my to-read list for any number of different reasons, but I like to think that coming upon Generation V was somewhat of a serendipitous fortune. M.L. Brennan was a name I first came across when I followed a few random links in my Twitter feed and came upon […]

Audiobook Review: Neverwhere by Neil Gaiman

Werewolves on SPACE

Laura Vandervoort as Elena Michaesl Bitten was my first real introduction to urban fantasy and supernatural books. I fell in love with Kelley Armstrong‘s Women of the Otherworld series.
