I’m so excited about the CW’s upcoming new show, The Hollows, based on Kim Harrison’s bestselling series of urban fantasy novels featuring Rachel Morgan, a smart and sassy private investigator who also just happens to be a very powerful witch. The show will be written and produced by Jordan Hawley, whose projects also include Smallville, Moonlight, and Wildfire.
I recently received an advance review copy of Harrison’s latest book, The Hollows Insider, which provides an overview of the world of the Hollows. Check back soon to read my review. If you’re thinking of purchasing your own copy of this book, I highly recommend doing it soon. It was just released this week, and first editions have a really cool glow-in-the-dark cover.
The Vampire Diaries, a TV show based on a series of books by L.J. Smith, premieres on the CW tonight. The show stars Paul Wesley as the vampire Stefan. I loved Wesley in the miniseries, Fallen, in which he played a nephilim teen discovering that angels, both good and evil, walk among us, and that he himself is descended from one.
Of course, I already have my TiVo set to record the season of The Vampire Diaries.
I’ve thoroughly enjoyed the heated debate launched in the comments section of my review of Stephenie Meyer’s book, The Host. Many readers feel strongly that Stephenie Meyer pilferred the Twilight storyline straight from L.J. Smith’s series, The Vampire Diaries. If you have an opinion to offer, please feel free to add your thoughts, either on the original post, or on this one as well.
