87. An Interview with Maya Banks

Jane and Sarah interview New York Times bestselling author Maya Banks. We talk about what she’s writing, and what she’s reading – both Maya and Jane are fans of books that contain crack. We talk about her feelings about first person point of view, new books, antiheroes, and recurring characters in the Banks world.

PLEASE NOTE. In the middle of the podcast, Jane and Maya discuss Kristen Ashley’s newest book, and there is a SPOILER ALERT between 20:30 – 24:34 in the podcast audio. (There’s also an announcement during the podcast at that point so don’t be worried if you think you’ll forget).

Here are the books we discuss in this podcast:

Book The King Don’t miss J.R. Ward’s THE KING from New American Library—the highly anticipated new book in the #1 New York Times bestselling Black Dagger Brotherhood series.

Long live the King…

After turning his back on the throne for centuries, Wrath, son of Wrath, finally assumed his father’s mantle–with the help of his beloved mate. But the crown sets heavily on his head.

As the war with the Lessening Society rages on, and the threat from the Band of Bastards truly hits home, he is forced to make choices that put everything–and everyone–at risk.

Beth Randall thought she knew what she was getting into when she mated the last pure blooded vampire on the planet: An easy ride was not it. But when she decides she wants a child, she’s unprepared for Wrath’s response–or the distance it creates between them.

The question is, will true love win out… or tortured legacy take over?
