Join us on January 13th at 7PM PST for our Virtual Fantasy Book Club.

We will discuss All of Us Villains by Amanda Foody & Christine Lynn Herman.

About the book:

The blockbuster co-writing debut of Amanda Foody and Christine Lynn Herman, All of Us Villains begins a dark tale of ambition and magick...

 

You Fell in Love with the Victors of the Hunger Games.
Now Prepare to Meet the Villains of the Blood Veil.

 

The Blood Moon rises. The Blood Veil falls. The Tournament begins.

 

Every generation, at the coming of the Blood Moon, seven families in the remote city of Ilvernath each name a champion to compete in a tournament to the death.

 

The prize? Exclusive control over a secret wellspring of high magick, the most powerful resource in the world--one thought long depleted.

 

This year, thanks to a salacious tell-all book, the seven champions are thrust into the worldwide spotlight, granting each of them new information, new means to win, and most importantly, a choice: accept their fate or rewrite their story.

 
But this is a story that must be penned in blood.

Join us on February 10th at 7PM for our Books Around the Corner Virtual Fantasy Book Club.

We will discuss The Midnight Girls by Alicia Jasinska.

About the book:

From the author of The Dark Tide comes a standalone LGBTQ YA fantasy set in the snow-cloaked Kingdom of Polva, where witches are burned and two enchantresses secretly compete for the heart of a prince, only to discover that they might be falling for each other

It's Karnawal season in the snow-cloaked Kingdom of Polva, a time marked by wintry balls, glittery disguises, and cavalcades of nightly torch-lit "kuligi" sleigh-parties. 

 And two wicked enchantresses join the merrymaking. Zosia and Marynka are caught up in all the icy glitz of Karnawal. They find themselves setting their sights on the same crown prince. Zosia wants his heart to use it's magic to earn her freedom, and Marynka it to prove her worth to the witch she serves.

 When neither will sacrifice their ambitions for the other, the festivities turn into a magical contest. But their magic does not go unnoticed, and this is a country that enjoys watching witches burn. Zosia and Marynka's escalating rivalry might cost them not just their love for each other, but both their lives.
