A. J. Vrana is a Serbian-Canadian academic and writer from Toronto, Canada. She lives with her two rescue cats, Moonstone and Peanut Butter, who nest in her window-side bookshelf and cast judgmental stares at nearby pigeons. Her doctoral research examines the supernatural in modern Japanese and former-Yugoslavian literature and its relationship to violence. When not toiling away at caffeine-fueled, scholarly pursuits, she enjoys jewelry-making, cupcakes, and concocting dark tales to unleash upon the world. Her published works include The Chaos Cycle Duology: The Hollow Gods (2020) and The Echoed Realm (2021) from The Parliament House Press, and a short supernatural horror story, These Silent Walls (2020), printed in Three Crows Magazine.

For Mason, I can kind of imagine a younger Ben Whishaw, but with blond, curlier hair and blue eyes. Miya and Kai are absolute mysteries to me, but I feel like that's partly because I'm not up to date on actors and actresses in their twenties! I'm always open to recommendations, though!

Generally speaking, I love having my characters illustrated because it captures some essence of them that will always be lost when you have actors.

For reference, you can see official artwork of Miya here and official artwork of Kai here and here. (less)

"Fairydale.
FAIRYDALE.

I am ruined for any other book for the remainder of my days.
I have raved about this story from the literal first page to the last sentence. It awoken something magical in me that I have not been privy to before Veronica graciously" Read more of this review »

Quotes by A.J. Vrana  (?)
Quotes are added by the Goodreads community and are not verified by Goodreads. (Learn more)

“Once upon a time, when the earth was formless and empty, and darkness stretched over the surface of the deep, we plunged one another into the abyss, and the world has trembled ever since.”
A.J. Vrana, The Hollow Gods

“Cut the seams of reality, and chaos is bound to spill out.”
A.J. Vrana, The Hollow Gods

“Do you believe in fate?” Miya asked when the crickets got too loud, knocking around the inside of her skull. Kai’s brows slowly knotted together. “Don’t care—don’t really think about it,” he said gruffly. “Really?” She turned to him. “You never think about whether things were meant to happen? Or if it’s all just coincidence?” “Nope.” He shrugged. “Don’t see the point. Even if you knew, so what? Fate’s just a nice way of saying you’re a hamster on a wheel. Nothing you do matters. And if everything’s coincidence, that leaves you with about as much control as fate.” This”
A.J. Vrana, The Hollow Gods
