This week Dani and Greg discuss the misfortunes of some bookstores, the Shannara Chronicles TV series, and the first book in Kevin Hearne's new series, A Plague of Giants.
From the east came the Bone Giants, from the south, the fire-wielding Hathrim - an invasion that sparked war across the six nations of Teldwen. The kingdom's only hope is the discovery of a new form of magic that calls the world's wondrous beasts to fight by the side of humankind.
Meet Greta Helsing, fast-talking doctor to the undead. Keeping the supernatural community not-alive and well in London has been her family's specialty for generations.
Greg and Dani talk about a potential The Blade Itself adaptation and Delilah S. Dawson's new book in the Star Wars EU about the backstory of the mysterious shiny stormtrooper, Phasma.
