The Order of the Unicorn

When Suzanne Selfors debuted her Imaginary Veterinary series, I blogged about it.  I assumed that would be that.  But then the series became popular.  And then I introduced it to my co-worker and her first grade son (who are crazy about it).  And now the fourth book, The Order of the Unicorn, has been published.  Unicorns!  I cannot let this opportunity pass me by.  When you finish book 4, grab one of these amazing unicorn stories.

Strange and Ever After

I came late to the zombie literature craze, but now I embrace it.  I have several series I devour, and one of my favorites has a new book out this week.  It's the third installment, so make sure you read the other two first.  Here's a spoiler-free sneak peek into Strange and Ever After by Susan Dennard.  I'm sorry it's so short, but to reveal more would be to reveal too much.
Eleanor Fitt travels to Egypt with the Spirit-Hunters to battle the evil necromancer.

  1. Something Strange and Deadly
  2. A Darkness Strange and Lovely (also available as downloadable ebook)
  3. Strange and Ever After 

There's also an ebook novella available for download through Overdrive.
