Generation Z: Birth of the Zompire
Dr. Gabriella Evans has just discovered that her boyfriend, Damon Drake, is a monster, and the knowledge will shatter her normally ordered life. When a vampire and two zombies attack Damon, he awakens as a zompire–more than an evil vampire, and much more than a mindless zombie. As he discovers his newly acquired abilities, he wonders if he and Gabby have any future together. Can their two species even coexist, much less have love expressed between them? Gabby worries—how much has Damon’s conversion changed the man she once loved? Can she love him in his new zompire form? It is only through mutual trust and cooperation, however, that they can succeed in hunting down the offending vampire, discover the motive behind his attack, and defeat his zombie army. Can they rediscover their love along the way, or will their differences lead to their mutual destruction?

Kissed by Fire (Book Two of the Sunwalker Saga) by Shéa MacLeod
As a vampire bounty hunter, Morgan Bailey has seen her fair share of strange things. There was the time she got mixed up with a race of powerful immortals known as sunwalkers.

And oh yeah, there was also that time she uncovered the secrets of an ancient Atlantean artifact that everyone was killing each other over. So she’s confident there’s no supernatural challenge she can’t handle—until now. When a murder investigation leads Morgan to London, she encounters something she never expected to see: dragons. It seems they might not be so extinct after all.

Three years ago, Morgan Bailey narrowly survived a vampire attack that left her with heightened senses, uncanny speed, and a new calling: supernatural bounty hunter. Since that day, sexy, street-smart Morgan hasn’t met a vampire she couldn’t dust or a demon she couldn’t kill— until she’s hired to hunt down a priceless amulet and the sunwalker who stole it. Sunwalkers—powerful vampires immune to sunlight—are notoriously difficult to find, let alone kill. Still, a job’s a job, and Morgan’s never been one to shy away from a challenge. So bring it on… right? But the sunwalker ends up tracking her down. And not only that, he turns out to be cunning, charming—and undeniably gorgeous. Nevertheless, she can’t ignore the destruction he is capable of: the sunwalker possesses an ancient secret which, if unleashed, could destroy the human world.

Now the tribunal wants him back on their side. To break their rogue agent, they capture Glory Cummings, the descendant of a shaman, and send her to restore Mirren’s bloodthirsty nature. But instead of a monster, Glory sees a man burdened by the weight of his past. Could her magic touch—meant by the tribunal to bring out a violent killer— actually help Mirren break his bonds and discover the love he doesn’t believe he deserves?

Blood Crime: An Original Hollows Graphic Novel by Kim Harrison and Gemma Magno
You can’t tell the story of how it all began for supernatural cops Ivy Tamwood and Rachel Morgan without telling how it all nearly ended. The fiery living vampire and erstwhile earth witch never asked to be paired up in the first place. And having to work Inderland Security’s crummiest beat—busting two-bit paranormal street punks—sure didn’t sweeten the deal. But when it counts, Ivy and Rachel always have each other’s backs. They’d better—because someone just hung targets on both of them. It doesn’t take a hotshot homicide detective to know that nearly getting flattened by a falling gargoyle or impaled by a lead pipe aren’t on-the-job accidents. But it doesn’t seem possible that the class of crooks Ivy and Rachel routinely collar could kill anything but brain cells. So who put Cincinnati’s tough and tender twosome on their “to do in” list? Is Ivy’s vampire master, the powerful and seductive Piscary, jealous of her growing bloodlust (and just plain lust) for Rachel? Or have forces unknown—living or undead—made the partners prey in a deadly witch (and vampire) hunt?

      L.J. Smith herself might be thinking the same thing, considering her publisher sacked her and used a ghost-writer for the Vampire Diaries “Hunters” trilogy, the third book of which is coming out on Oct. 23rd.
