    Live Girls by Ray Garton Live Girls is a short and fast-paced vampire adventure of a book. Don’t reach for it if you like your horror to have deep characterization or be character-driven.

    Department 19: The Rising by Will Hill Several things about this book annoyed the heck outta me, including: I have begun to detest Jamie who is a Mary Sue if there ever was one! Talbot stared at Jamie, admiration on his face. “Bravo”, he said. “There are men and women a lot older than you […]
