My most favorite day is upon us, the day where we have a look at all of the vampire books hitting bookshelves this month! Last month was a bit of a disappointment since there was a surprisingly low amount of new vampire releases, but this month is MUCH better since there are far more new books for us fang fans to enjoy. Woo! Have a look at all of the new released coming to bookstores this July.

In the course of avoiding Raben and Mab, he goes to Angleland, befriends the humans and the witch Ambrosias and manages to win (not steal) the sword he was sent to pinch. But on his return he faces the ultimate test, to keep Exkylipyr from his family and thereby prevent her from starting a civil war amongst the vampires.
