I believe the blood bond is special. There are other kinds of bonds, no more valuable than blood, but there is none that is the same. It is a God-given bond that can not be changed. It will always be there no matter what we try to do to cut it off. Unfortunately, this bond does not mean that ther... Read more of this blog post »

Eons have passed. The gem found its way to Earth, leaving a path of bloodshed and destruction in its wake. From ancient Greece to the Vatican through the C... Read more of this blog post »

Dublin crime novelist Tana French has the kind of critical reviews that other writers would…well, die for. Her debut murder mystery, In the Woods , won rave reviews and multiple literary prizes upon its release in 2007. Since then, her books have tended to haunt the bestseller lists, on both sides of the pond, and for months at a time. British newspaper The Independent has dubbed French "The First Lady of Irish Crime," and The Washington Post says she is the most important crime novelist to emerge in the past ten years. ...more
