New Vampire Books for January 2013
Here are some of the offerings in the vampire genre for the month of January 2013. Enjoy!
Contingency by Peggy Martinez
Eighteen-year-old Sage Hannigan wants to get back to her own time, preferably one that hasn’t been destroyed by an underworld plot brewing in Edwardian-era South Carolina. How hard can it be? All she has to do to accomplish this; learn to use newly acquired warping skills to bend time to her will, take out a few rogue vampires, join an ancient secret society, figure out who is putting the time stream in jeopardy, and find and maim whoever invented the corset. Sage never asked to be chosen by the Druid Priestess, Amerach, to become a Warper. She also never asked to have the future hanging on her shoulders or to warp a hundred years into the past. She certainly never asked to meet Dr. Aldwin Blake, who would make her question her desire to get back to her own time. But if she fails her mission, people will die, history will change, and the present she wishes to return to will be no more.
Blood and Light by Rue Volley
Enter into the world of 16 year-old Rue Volley…who, up until one fateful night, thought she was “normal” or as “normal” as she could be.
But “normal” does not include being a vampire…a truth about herself that she will soon discover.
Rue Volley lives in the quiet little town of Calvary, Minnesota…nestled in the thick woods lining the Great Lakes. Rue, along with her
brother Kai, have lived an otherwise calm life up until their Mother was committed into Rolling River Asylum after she mysteriously stopped
speaking to anyone. Rue is convinced by her brother to attend a party on her birthday, and after she experiences something that she cannot
explain, she and everyone in her world is thrown into madness. Join Rue on this epic journey, 6 books in all, as she struggles with grief,
love, humor, old crushes, newfound infatuations, hot boys, AND vampires, lots and lots of them.
Love Calling by Joshua Grover-David Patterson
Lucy Leary’s eighteen year old life is a wreck. Her parents divorced, she’s earned a DUI, and her grandfather has died. He left her a single possession: A vampire slaying kit with a note that says, “They’re real. Fight them.”
Lucy finds answers in a place she never expected–the homeless shelter where she has to perform her community service. The Sundown Shelter is only open at night, and the man who runs it disappears during the day. But digging into the truth is dangerous. What Lucy learns will force her to abandon her life and confront an ancient vampire out to get her family.
The Vampire Within – New Blood by Drew Silver
Welcome to Triton City, California, world-renowned for its quality of life, growing economy, and prestigious university. Here one can find an easygoing commute to work, parents can feel secure with their children playing outside during the day, and there are no beggars on the street corners harassing hardworking citizens to spare a dollar or two. In fact, there aren’t any homeless to be seen for miles…any homeless who are alive anyway.
Now the city that prided itself on beauty, strength, and power is at the epicenter of a twisted genetics game between two doctors battling to play God, and a group of college students has discovered they are the game’s unwilling pawns. They must learn to rely on each other to defeat not only the evil hunting them, but also the vampire within, always itching to reveal itself and test the boundaries of their souls.
Piece of Me by Lexi Monroe
As if making her laptop sales quota for the month wasn’t a pain in the ass all by itself, now twenty-six year old Wynter McBride suddenly finds a whole host of problems from out of a bad b-movie fantasy flick.
Vampires running fortune 500 companies, Werewolves with a biting wit, and well dressed Witches with an attitude are now part of Wynter’s everyday life.
Wynter must figure out why the pesky and somewhat perverted little Will O Wisps somehow hold the key to saving the planet.
