The Legend of Black Annis by Colleen Halverson So many Celtic legends and folk tales inform my work on The Aisling Chronicles, but for my second book in the series, CHILDREN OF THE VEIL, my biggest source of inspiration came from the legend of Black Annis. She is often described as a crone or… Read more »

One of the genre tags on the Goodreads page for DEADER HOMES AND GARDENS is “cozy mystery” and that is a very accurate description for this book and in fact the whole series. It’s the type of book to read for someone looking for a ‘scary but not pants-wetting scary ‘ book to read on a cold October evening.
A wealth of new covers this week!
THE LIBRARIANS AND THE LOST LAMP, a book based off the popular TV show The Librarians is a fun, fast read that I really enjoyed. My only complaint is that readers who are not as familiar with the TV show as I am may not get the same level of enjoyment out of the book.

It felt so good to fall back into the world of Mira Grant’s Newsflesh novels, that as I worked through the book, I read faster and faster until the dramatic conclusion. Medical paranoia and zombie based intrigue make for an exciting novel that brings back the excitement of reading the first three books in the series.
BLOODY ACQUISITIONS is easily the best book in the Fred, the Vampire Accountant series. Drew Hayes’ writing has improved a lot since THE UTTERLY UNINTERESTING AND UNADVENTUROUS TALES OF FRED, THE VAMPIRE ACCOUNTANT. He’s managed to keep all of the amazing things that make the world of Fred, that Vampire Accountant so lovable, while ditching all of the bad parts. This is no longer a collection of novellas, but one story. BLOODY ACQUISITIONS still has an episodic feel to it, but it follows one story line.
