[Manga Maniac Cafe] Can you tell us a little about The Night is Found?
[Kat Kruger] It’s the third book in The Magdeburg Trilogy about 17-year-old Connor Lewis who gets a scholarship to study in Paris and winds up in the middle of a werewolf war. In this final book, he’s had to take on a leadership role to help stop two separate groups who threaten the existence of all werewolves. He returns home to NYC to seek out help from the New World packs who are rumored to have united. Meanwhile, the girl he’s crushing on gets mixed up with the enemy overseas. Read more

I requested Peanut Goes to School because it sounded cute. Super strong paranormal kid heads off for his first day of school. I haven’t read any of the Elder Races books (I keep calling them Elder Scrolls because that is one of my favorite video game franchises – sorry!), but that did not deter my enjoyment of this fun novella. Even though he take down a pack of lions, Liam struggles in a social setting with classmates and unfamiliar adults, and I could not put this down. Read more
I’ve kind of been in a funk the last few days, and I’m not sure why. I’m having a hard time finding a book that holds my interest for more than a few chapters, so I set my Kindle down this morning and spent some time playing with Crunchyroll. If you haven’t heard of the site before, Crunchyroll bills itself as “the leading global video service for Japanese Anime and Asian media.” They offer free streaming of anime and manga, as well as paid memberships for access to a larger library of titles with no advertising. Everything I’m going to talk about today I viewed under their free offerings.

When I learned that Diana Wynne Jones had passed away, I actually cried. I have loved her books so much, for so long, and the thought of her wonderful being silenced depressed me. She was writing brilliant tales brimming with magic long before Harry Potter arrived on the scene, and it’s frustrating that she never attainted the recognition she deserved. I remember haunting used bookstores and libraries in search of her then out of print books. At least today, the majority of them are readily available, and quite a few are offered in eBook format. Win! Read more
