Wherein the host Bethany is joined by Liene from the YouTube channel Liene's Library to discuss dark and grimdark fantasy books, morally gray characters, why we love a villain, why we love the fact that YA and children's literature are starting to include some darker themes and morally complex characters, and the need for female characters outside of the saint/sinner dichotomy.
