VOYA Starred Review for Alex Van Helsing: "Must-have for all libraries"

VOYA, or Voice of Youth Advocates, a library magazine focusing on the young-adult market, gave Alex Van Helsing: Vampire Rising a starred review in their upcoming print magazine.

Libraries are extremely important to a writer because you grow your audience there-- a reader may pick up your latest book in Hardback and then is primed to pick up your next project. A career is a long-term thing, so you need to have your books where you know they'll last. One of the bigger thrills of this project has been seeing the book turning up in library catalogs.

VOYA had nice things to say:

“This wonderful series opener is a compelling action, fantasy, horror story ... This book will engage readers easily and many will not be able to put it down. This excellent book is a must-have purchase ... will make readers eager for the next in the series.”
— Voice of Youth Advocates (VOYA) (Starred Review) 
Thanks guys!
