It has been 60 episodes but we have finally returned to the Night Huntress World by Jeannine Frost. This book gives us the love story for Kira, a human private eye, and Mencheres, a 4,500 year old master vampire.

This week we discussed the men in The Dragon Reborn. We are still here for not seeing Rand, we love Perrin, and we might actually like Mat! We know we were strong contenders that "he would have to do a lot," but he does, in fact, do a lot!! We do a deep discussion on different ways to read Thom, and we either need more or less of Lan. No in between…
 
Novelist Bram Presser and comparative literature academic Rebecca Suter join Kate and Cassie to talk about Kazuo Ishiguro's latest novel, Klara and the Sun, in light of all his other novels. And yes, the quality of light, shining down on this Artificial Friend - Robot Girl - is one of the many things at stake in this bookish discussion…
 
We haven’t had great luck with Wolf Shifter books but this book redeemed the subgenre for us. In the beginning, Chloe’s relationship with Rafe was hard to read about. Rafe seemed like a class A jerk and I was scared she was going to marry him. Then Fenris showed up, a time traveling viking with some truly ancient relationship beliefs. At first it s…
 
Laura and Hannah talk a long time on the plot of The Dragon Reborn (like, too long). Laura admits her love to Fredrik Backman, who is NOT like Nicholas Sparks. New Girl is the new Jane the Virgin for media mentions, and by the end of this episode we hate the sound of our own voices! Also Jordan needs to work on describing where a necklace hangs. Ha…

This week we discuss the Men in the Great Hunt. Mat still sucks, Rand is still a shepherd from Emond's Field until he's not, and Perrin is still great and underserved. We complain about how repetitive the novels can get. We like that Mat has some character movement, and that we finally have hope for him. We also still maintain that Loail is done di…
 
In season one we read a short story compilation that included a story by Marjorie Liu, it was from this series and we loved the idea so much we talked about wanting to read a whole book. Why it took us 3 years to make good on our discussion is anyone’s guess. But here we are. We are happy to relate that we weren’t disappointed. This is a fantastic …

Today on the pod we are discussing the women of Wheel of Time and both of us side with Egwene or Nynaeve. We do both like Moraine and Min, though. We discuss the casting of Wheel of Time.
