Vampire Books Coming January 2011

And we’re back with more books! Since so many vampire books are coming out this month I had to split it up. I already covered the young adult books coming out this January HERE, now it’s time to take a look at the adult vampire books gracing bookshelves this month.

Maestro’s Apprentice: A Ravenous Romance by Rhonda Leigh Jones
About Autumn, who is free for the first time. She has escaped Claudio du Fresne, the vampire for whom she had been a feeder-slave for years. Now she wants to play and, for her, playing means wild, crazy sex with strangers. She doesn’t count on meeting the vampire Francois Villaforte at a resort for vampires in New Orleans. She doesn’t know he is a very bad man hell-bent on revenge, or that she is going to be caught up in his evil plan. She doesn’t know that she will not be able to stop thinking of Adam, the gentle vampire who took her away from Claudio, whom she assumed she would soon leave her in pursuit of sexual adventure. What will become of Autumn? What does Francois have planned for her? Will Claudio find her and take her back? Will she ever see Adam again?
Coming out January 1, 2011.

Taken By The Others (H&W Investigations) by Jess Haines
About P.I. Shiarra Waynest,  who’s dealing with two dangerous, seductive vampires who have been enemies for centuries. The only thing Max Carlyle and Alec Royce agree on is that they both want Shia – for very different reasons. Max is determined to destroy Shia for killing his progeny, while Royce’s interest is a lot more personal. That’s not sitting well with Shia’s werewolf boyfriend, Chaz. As the feud between Max and Royce gets ever more deadly, a powerful vampire-hunting faction is urging Shia to join their side. Shia has always believed vamps were the bad guys, but she’s discovering unexpected shades of grey that are about to redefine her friends, her loyalties – and even her desires.
Coming out January 4, 2011.

Of Truth and Beasts: A Novel of the Noble Dead by Barb Hendee and J.C. Hendee
In the newest book in the Noble Dead Saga, Wynn has returned safely to the Guild of Sagecraft with her companions, the vampire Chane Andraso and Shade, an elven wolf. Though Wynn managed to regain her seized journals, she received only a glimpse of the ancient texts penned by forgotten vampires, and once again, the volumes have slipped from her grasp. The price for her brief success may prove costly.
Coming out January 1, 2011.

March in Country: A Novel of the Vampire Earth by E. E. Knight
The 9th book in the Vampire Earth series. The race is on to claim the area between the Ohio River and Tennessee. What’s left of the resistance is hiding out in the tangle of central Kentucky hills – leaving the powerful, well-organized Kurian vampires the opportunity to fill the void. Major David Valentine knows there’s only one way for them to find help before the Kurians settle in: a desperate dash by hijacked rail, followed by a harrowing river journey. Valentine unites friends old and new in the effort- but the Kurian Order won’t easily yield the blood-soaked Kentucky soil.
Coming out January 1, 2011.

The Kensei: A Lawson Vampire Novel by Jon F. Merz
The latest book in a series that follows vampire secret agent Lawson. This time, Lawson is in Japan on vacation. But trouble arrives almost immediately when an assassin tries to take down a young Japanese man and his girlfriend. Lawson’s interference is more than just annoying, as the assassin he kills was a member of the local Yakuza, the Kensei, and now the Mob wants vengeance. When Lawson’s former KGB agent girlfriend arrives with troubles of her own, his vacation is no longer the least bit relaxing.
Coming out January 18, 2011.

The Fallen Blade: Act One of the Assassini (The Vampire Assassin Trilogy) by Jon Courtenay Grimwood
Venice in the early fifteenth century is at the height of its power. In theory Duke Marco commands. But Marco is a simpleton so his aunt and uncle rule in his stead. Within the Serene Republic, their word is law, but for all their influence, Venice’s fate still lies in other hands . Lady Giulietta is the Duke’s cousin. She enjoys greater privilege than many can even dream of, but her status will demand a terrible price. Atilo Il Mauros is head of the Assassini, the shadow army that enforces Venice’s will – both at home and abroad. Prince Leopold zum Bas Friedland is the bastard son of the German emperor and leader of the krieghund – the only force in Venice more feared than Atilo’s assassins. And then there is Atilo’s angel-faced apprentice. Only a boy, Tycho is already stronger and faster than any man has a right to be. He can see in the dark, but sunlight burns him. It is said that he drinks blood.

    Endless Night by Kenn Baker is available at amazon:
    http://www.amazon.com/Endless-Night-ebook/dp/B006T5SLBK/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1326287223&sr=8-1

    I was tired of vampire stories where the protagonist was whiny and didn’t want to drink human blood, so I wrote a vampire book for people who like vampire books. About the book:

    James is a vampire who wants to hunt, he relishes the kill. He wants to hunt openly, leaving the dead where they fall, but his pack leader Brad insists upon discretion. James is discontent with this domesticated vampire existance, and does everything he can to change his life, fix his relationship, end the tyranny of Brad and avoid that pesky sun.

    Endless Night is a fang filled feeding frenzy of fornication and of course….blood.
