Richelle Mead - Shadow ​Heir
#1 ​New York Times bestselling author Richelle Mead returns to the Otherworld, a mystic land inextricably linked to our own--and balanced precariously on one woman's desperate courage... Shaman-for-hire Eugenie Markham strives to keep the mortal realm safe from trespassing entities. But as the Thorn Land's prophecy-haunted queen, there's no refuge for her and her soon-to-be-born-children when a mysterious blight begins to devastate the Otherworld... The spell-driven source of the blight isn't the only challenge to Eugenie's instincts. Fairy king Dorian is sacrificing everything to help, but Eugenie can't trust the synergy drawing them back together. The uneasy truce between her and her shape shifter ex-lover Kiyo is endangered by secrets he can't--or won't--reveal. And as a formidable force rises to also threaten the human world, Eugenie must use her own cursed fate as a weapon--and risk the ultimate sacrifice...

Admittedly, the shapeshifting and immortality perks are terrific, and yes, Georgina did choose to join the ranks of hell centuries ago.

It’s not just her personal life that’s in chaos. Doug, Georgina’s co-worker at a local bookstore, has been exhibiting bizarre behavior, and Georgina suspects that something far more demonic than double espressos is at work.

And she can’t have a decent date without sucking away part of the guy’s life. At least there’s her day job at a local bookstore—free books, all the white chocolate mochas she can drink, and easy access to bestselling, sexy writer, Seth Mortensen, aka He Whom She Would Give Anything to Touch but Can’t. But dreaming about Seth will have to wait. Something wicked is at work in Seattle’s demon underground. And for once, all of her hot charms and drop-dead one-liners won’t help because Georgina’s about to discover there are some creatures out there that both heaven and hell want to deny…

Ahol pedig ők jelen vannak, ott a baj sem járhat messze. A történet szerint Sydney, az Alkimista élete teljesen új fordulatot vesz, amikor kegyvesztett státuszából hirtelen a mora vámpírtársadalom egyik legrangosabb és legféltettebb tagja, Jill Mastrano személyes testőrévé nevezik ki. A vámpírok közelsége miatti viszolygása hirtelen eltörpül egy sokkal ijesztőbb probléma mellett: magántanulóként töltött gyermekkora után Sydney belecsöppen a gimnáziumi élet kellős közepébe. Miközben egy zaklatott lelkivilágú - mellékesen vámpír - kamaszról gondoskodik, és az iskolai klikkek között próbál eligazodni, az Alkimista berkeken belüli ármánykodással is meg kell küzdenie. Sydney hamarosan ijesztő események középpontjában találja magát. A diákok különleges képességeket biztosító tetoválásainak titkát, valamint a vámpírgyilkosságok rejtélyét is kénytelen lesz felderíteni.

Rose így Dmitrijjel nekivág a nagyvilágnak, hogy elrejtőzzön rosszakarói, valamint a királyi udvar testőrei elől. Rose persze nem tűrheti tétlenül, hogy valaki a nyakába varrta a gyilkosságot, és nyomozni kezd az igazi tettes után. Ehhez azonban meg kell találnia a királynő neki írt levelében említett utolsó Dragomir-leszármazottat. Eközben barátnője, Lissa, az Udvar politikai intrikái közepette a királyi trón várományosai között találja magát… Kiben bízhatnak, miközben halálos ellenségeik nyújtanak segítséget, és barátaik árulják el őket?

Richelle Mead - The ​Golden Lily
Sydney ​Sage is an Alchemist, one of a group of humans who dabble in magic and serve to bridge the worlds of humans and vampires. They protect vampire secrets—and human lives. Sydney would love to go to college, but instead, she’s been sent into hiding at a posh boarding school in Palm Springs, California–tasked with protecting Moroi princess Jill Dragomir from assassins who want to throw the Moroi court into civil war. Formerly in disgrace, Sydney is now praised for her loyalty and obedience, and held up as the model of an exemplary Alchemist. But the closer she grows to Jill, Eddie, and especially Adrian, the more she finds herself questioning her age–old Alchemist beliefs, her idea of family, and the sense of what it means to truly belong. Her world becomes even more complicated when magical experiments show Sydney may hold the key to prevent becoming Strigoi—the fiercest vampires, the ones who don’t die. But it’s her fear of being just that—special, magical, powerful—that scares her more than anything. Equally daunting is her new romance with Brayden, a cute, brainy guy who seems to be her match in every way. Yet, as perfect as he seems, Sydney finds herself being drawn to someone else—someone forbidden to her. When a shocking secret threatens to tear the vampire world apart, Sydney’s loyalties are suddenly tested more than ever before. She wonders how she's supposed to strike a balance between the principles and dogmas she's been taught, and what her instincts are now telling her. Should she trust the Alchemists—or her heart?

Rose ​Hathaway élete tele van gondokkal. Nem elég mindaz a nehézség, amit dampyr testőrtanoncként kell átélnie, ráadásul oktatója, a vonzó Dmitrij valaki másra vetett szemet. A köztük lévő szoros kapocs miatt pedig Rose folyton akkor hallja legjobb barátnője, Lissa Dragomir gondolatait, amikor az barátjával, Christiannal enyeleg. A Szent Vlagyimir Akadémiát azonban megtámadják az élőhalott strigák, akik korábban több királyi vérű nemesi családot lemészároltak. Így az iskolának a legjobb dampyr testőrökre van szüksége, többek közt Rose anyjára, a legendás, ám szigorú Janine Hathaway-re. Az idei sítábor kötelező, ám Idaho hótól csillogó lankái csak látszólag biztonságosak. A könyörtelen strigák halálos veszélyt jelentenek mindenki számára, és Rose-nak cselekednie kell. De a hősiességnek mindig ára van.
