kindred of darkness

Kindred of Darkness: A vampire kidnapping (James Asher Vampire Novel) by Barbara Hambly (Mar 1, 2014)

When James Asher and his wife Lydia’s baby daughter Miranda is kidnapped by the Master Vampire of London, the stakes are high: blindly follow the Master Vampire’s instructions, keep out of the way of the human networks that serves the vampires, destroy the interloper who seeks to seize control of the London Nest, and find the key to the Nest’s tortuous inner workings: The Book of the Kindred of Darkness.
Even with the vampire Don Simon Ysidro on their side, there’s no guarantee that anything – or anyone – is who or what they appear to be. Nor is there any certainty that they’ll see their child again – or survive the experience themselves.

vampires are usVampires Are Us: Understanding Our Love Affair with the Immortal Dark Side by Margot Adler (Mar 1, 2014)

In a culture that does not do death particularly well, we are obsessed with mortality. Margot Adler writes, “Vampires let us play with death and the issue of mortality. They let us ponder what it would mean to be truly long lived. Would the long view allow us to see the world differently, imagine social structures differently? Would it increase or decrease our reverence for the planet? Vampires allow us to ask questions we usually bury.”

As Adler, a longtime NPR correspondent and question asker, sat vigil at her dying husband’s bedside, she found herself newly drawn to vampire novels and their explorations of mortality. Over the next four years–by now she has read more than 270 vampire novels, from teen to adult, from gothic to modern, from detective to comic–she began to see just how each era creates the vampires it needs. Dracula, an Eastern European monster, was the perfect vehicle for 19th-century England’s fear of outsiders and of disease seeping in through its large ports. In 1960s America, Dark Shadows gave us the morally conflicted vampire struggling against his own predatory nature, who still enthralls us today. Think Spike and Angel, Stefan and Damon, Bill and Eric, the Cullens.

Vampires Are Us explores the issues of power, politics, morality, identity, and even the fate of the planet that show up in vampire novels today. Perhaps, Adler suggests, our blood is oil, perhaps our prey is the planet. Perhaps vampires are us.

kissing with fangs

Kissing with Fangs by Ashlyn Chase (Mar 4, 2014)

There’s Something He’s Never Told Her…

When her workplace burned down, Claudia should’ve taken it as a sign to move on—and not just professionally. She’s been secretly lusting after her mysterious boss, Anthony Cross, for years. There’s no way she should agree to help him rebuild if she wants to keep her heart intact, and yet it’s impossible to stay away…

The flames that destroyed Anthony Cross’s beloved bar are nothing compared to the heat he feels every time he lays eyes on Claudia. But he can’t have her—it’s against paranormal law for a vampire to date a human. Besides, he has some dangerous enemies, and one in particular already has her sights on Claudia. He owes her the truth—both about his feelings and his vampire nature—which means their lives are about to get hotter than ever…

buffy

Buffy The Vampire Slayer Season 9 Volume 5: The Core by Andrew Chambliss, Jane Espenson, Scott Allie and Sierra Hahn(Mar 18, 2014)

When Dawn falls ill, it’s up to best friends Buffy, Xander, and Willow to join forces and find a supernatural cure in a world sorely lacking magic. The trio must fight their way into the Deeper Well, the former home of Illyria and other ancient gods known as the Old Ones, where they hope to jump-start magic back into existence. But when they discover the volatile Severin and Simone, a Slayer gone rogue, looking to gain access to the Well, Buffy’s mission must shift from saving her sister to saving the world.

shadowbound

Shadowbound (A Novel of the Shadow World) by Dianne Sylvan (Mar 25, 2014)

Spread throughout the dark corners of our world lies the Shadow World, a society of vampires who feed off the living. In Austin, Texas, one woman must quell the cravings rising within her, as the very fate of the world rests in her hands…

Ever since her Prime, David Solomon, returned from the dead, Miranda Grey has been hungry. The transformation from ordinary vampires into the ultrapowerful children of Persephone has left both Miranda and David craving the taste of death—and their appetites are growing.

Meanwhile, a formerly vague threat from a fringe group of humans has turned into a full-on war. The Order of the Morningstar has devoted itself to eradicating vampires and has begun to assassinate Primes all over the globe.

The Shadow World’s fate depends on the Circle of Signets descended from those who subdued Morningstar hundreds of years ago—but if even a single one is killed, the war is almost certainly lost. Now, with the help of a strange new ally, Miranda must put aside her hunger and access long-forgotten magic to save the Circle, but time is running out…
