Joss Whedon: The Biography by Amy Pascale and Nathan Fillion (Aug 1, 2014)

From the cult favorite Buffy the Vampire Slayer, which netted four million viewers per episode, to the summer blockbuster The Avengers, which amassed a box office of $1.5 billion, Joss Whedon has made a name for himself in Hollywood for his penchant for telling meaningful, personal tales about love, death, and redemption even against the most dramatic and larger-than-life backdrops. This biography follows his development from a creative child and teenager who spent years away from his family at an elite English public school, through his early successes—which often turned into frustrating heartbreak in both television (Roseanne) and film (Buffy the Vampire Slayer)—to his breakout turn as the creator, writer, and director of the Buffy television series. Extensive, original interviews with Whedon’s family, friends, collaborators, and stars—and with the man himself—offer candid, behind-the-scenes accounts of the making of groundbreaking series such as Buffy, Angel, Firefly, and Dollhouse, as well as new stories about his work with Pixar writers and animators during the creation of Toy Story. Most importantly, however, these conversations present an intimate and revealing portrait of a man whose creativity and storytelling ability have manifested themselves in comics, online media, television, and film.

blood games

Blood Games (Chicagoland Vampires) by Chloe Neill (Aug 5, 2014)

While Merit didn’t choose to become a vampire or Sentinel of Cadogan House, she vowed to fight for her House and its Master, and she’s managed to forge strong alliances with powerful supernaturals across Chicago. But even though Merit has had wild adventures, this may be her deadliest yet….

A killer is stalking Chicago, preying on humans and leaving his victims with magical souvenirs. The CPD hasn’t been able to track the assailant, and as the body count rises, the city is running out of options. Vampires and humans aren’t on great terms, but murder makes for strange bedfellows. Can Merit find the killer before she becomes a target?

 

under the final moon

Under The Final Moon (Underworld Detective Agency) by Hannah Jayne (Aug 5, 2014)

Sophie Lawson may be a mere human with no special abilities except a strong immunity to magic. But the havoc she’s wreaked on the supernatural’s who come up against the Underworld Detection Agency have earned her plenty of enemies. Still, a girl can’t freak out every time a horribly barbecued corpse is found with her business card in its hand. Or see a sudden glut of earthquakes, wildfires and three-headed dogs as just another day in California. But Alex Grace, her favourite fallen angel, is concerned–or saying he is to see more of her. Getting Sophie to see all the signs of the Apocalypse is an interesting way to heat things up. Or maybe what’s making everyone hot under the collar is the fact that all Hell is about to break loose…

 

 one bite per night

One Bite Per Night (Scandals with Bite) by Brooklyn Ann (Aug 5, 2014)

He wanted her off his hands… Now he’ll do anything to hold on to her …Forever.

Vincent Tremayne, the reclusive “Devil Earl,” has been manipulated into taking rambunctious Lydia Price as his ward. As Lord Vampire of Cornwall, Vincent has better things to do than bring out an unruly debutante.
American-born Lydia Price doesn’t care for the stuffy strictures of the ton, and is unimpressed with her foppish suitors. She dreams of studying with the talented but scandalous British portrait painter, Sir Thomas Lawrence. But just when it seems her dreams will come true, Lydia is plunged into Vincent’s dark world and finds herself caught between the life she’s known and a future she never could have imagined.

Vampires: A Hunter’s Guide (Dark) by Steve White and Mark McKenzie-Ray (Aug 19, 2014)

From legends of Vlad the Impaler to Twilight and HBO’s True Blood, vampire stories permeate society. Learn the truth behind the fiction in this tell-all of the hunters who protect humanity from the vampiric threat!

For centuries, vampires have wandered the shadows: watching, stalking, preying. But thanks to a group of dedicated and powerful hunters, the vampire threat has remained largely suppressed, evidence of their existence confined to the whispers of myth and folklore. But covens across the world have grown weary. The undead are preparing to rise up and claim their rightful place in society.

Vampires: A Hunter’s Guide contains all the information necessary to recognize and combat this growing threat. After an exploration into the origins of these undead creatures, it takes a look at the dozens of species that exist around the world today, placing particular emphasis on the role of the vampire hunter in quashing the rise of the undead throughout the centuries. Focusing on the hunters’ weapons, tactics and skills, this book provides information on identifying and eliminating vampires by analyzing the best practices from hunters from around the world, accompanied by full-color illustrations of predator and prey. This is the ultimate resource in the fight to save humanity from the undead.
