October 30, 2016 The Librarian 0

And now for today’s second victim… um… sorry… I mean, guest. I first discovered Jemiah Jefferson and her work roughly ten years ago; she writes vampire books and needless to say I have a huge soft spot for bloodsuckers. Seriously, I can’t get enough of them. Ever. While Jemiah hasn’t been quite as prolific in recent years, her Voice of Blood series (Voice of the Blood, Wounds, Fiend and A Drop of Scarlet) remains well worth tracking down. [READ MORE]
