Vampire Books Coming April 2011

We have loads of vampire books coming out this month! April is definitely a good month for all of the vampire-lovin’ bookworms out there. There’s a little bit of everything – horror, romance, mystery, and even some non-fiction.  Check out it out!

Sleeping Beauty: Vampire Slayer (Twisted Tales) by Maureen McGowan
In this story, Sleeping Beauty is more than just a lonely princess waiting for her prince—she’s a brave, tenacious girl who never backs down from a challenge. With vampire-slaying talents that she practices in secret, Sleeping Beauty puts her courage to the test in the dark of night, fighting evil as she searches for a way to break the spell that has cut her off from her family. In a special twist, readers have the opportunity to make key decisions for Sleeping Beauty and decide where she goes next—but no matter the choice; the result is a story unlike any fairy tale you’ve ever read!
Coming out April 1, 2011.

The Vampire Defanged: How the Embodiment of Evil Became a Romantic Hero by Susannah Clements
Susannah Clements reveals the roots of the vampire myth and shows how it was originally immersed in Christian values and symbolism. Over time, however, vampires have been “defanged” as their spiritual significance has waned, and what was once the embodiment of evil has turned into a teen idol and the ultimate romantic hero. Clements offers a close reading of selected vampire texts, explaining how this transformation occurred and helping readers discern between the variety of vampire stories presented in movies, TV shows, and novels. Her probing engagement of the vampire metaphor enables readers to make Christian sense of this popular obsession.
Coming out April 1, 2011.

Deadworld by J.N. Duncan
FBI agent Jackie Rutledge has seen her share of supernatural killers, but her latest murder case is what recurring nightmares are made of. Brutally exsanguinated human victims, vanishing-into-the-ether evidence, and a city on the edge of panic mean that she and her psychic partner, Laurel, are going to need more than just backup. So Jackie is fine with any help P.I. Nick Anderson can give – even if that includes the impish ghost and sexy vampire who make up his team.

Vampire Dragon (A Works Like Magick Novel) by Annette Blair

And so do the girls he spurns, because he only has eyes for one of them – the far-from-average vampire Moka. On the plus side, Moka only has glowing red eyes for Tsukune. On the O-negative side, she also has a burning, unquenchable thirst for his blood…

His mortal ward and houseguest has annoyed—and bewitched—the Dracule nobleman too long, and denying his animal cravings grows more excruciating by the day. Miss Woodmore’s family has a rather…complicated history with the immortals and she herself possesses a keen sensibility far beyond mere women’s intuition.
