She’s died twice while protecting her city…and she’d do it again to save the people she loves.
After a deadly, artificial infection forces the vampire Families into a self-imposed isolation, the city’s protective Watchtower forces are depleted by one third, leaving humans and shifters to shoulder the burden. Human enforcer Evangeline Stone is determined to find a way to help her vampire allies, but she already has her hands full—investigating an escalating series of goblin attacks, dealing with her half-werewolf lover, locating three missing werewolf teenagers, and learning to trust her non-human coworkers.
When a potential cure for the vampires’ infection is given to her by an unlikely source, it’s just as quickly stolen—collateral damage in a power play within the were-cat Clan that leaves one human ally dead and another horribly injured. With Wyatt Truman still adjusting to his new life as a half-werewolf, Phineas missing in action, and her shifter allies crippled by internal anarchy, Evy has to rely on her own strength and instincts to steal back the cure, stop a murderer, and to save the Watchtower before it’s destroyed from the inside out.

Karen Chance - Megérint a sötétség
A Megérint a sötétség a világhírű Cassandra Palmer-sorozat első része. Karen Chance írónő ebben a kötetben kalauzol el minket először Cassie különleges világába, ahol otthonosan mozognak a természetfeletti lények, a görög mitológia álomszerű alakjai pedig a középkori Európa szörnyeivel és modern korunk rémlényeivel csatáznak. Az olvasót az első oldaltól foglyul ejti a különleges világ, ahol bármelyik pillanatban megtörténhet a legmeglepőbb fordulat is... Cassandra Palmer élete koránt sem átlagos. Látomásai véletlenszerűen felvillantják neki a múlt vagy a jövő fontos pillanatait. Emiatt figyel fel rá és rabolja el Tony, a több száz éves vámpír. Hatalmat akar Cassie látomásaiból - mindent tudni akar üzletfeleiről, pedig azt még nem is sejti, hogy a szellemek szintén kapcsolatot tudnak teremteni a lánnyal. Két évvel Tonytól való szökése után Cassandra halálos fenyegetést kap. Ezzel véget érnek az unalmas hétköznapok, menekülnie kell a vámpírok elől. De nem csak nevelője üldözi, nyomába erednek más vámpír nagymesterek, hadmágusok, sötét varázslók és boszorkányok is. De vajon mit akarnak a fiatal, ártatlan lánytól? Mi köze mindennek Carcassone várának kínzókamráihoz, ahová Cassie látomásai újabban vezetnek? Sikerül-e kideríteni, valójában mi történt pontosan a húsz évvel korábban elhunyt szüleivel? "A legendákkal ellentétben a teste melegen simult hozzám,érintése olyan puha volt, mint a legfinomabb selyem. Mégsem volt több esélyem kiszabadulni szorításából, mintha acélból öntött karok fontak volna át. A pulzusom felgyorsult, az ájulás kerülgetett, amikor előrehajtotta a fejét, és megéreztem nyelve hegyét a nyakamon. Azt hiszem, egy pillanatra meg is állt a szívem, amint óvatosan megcsókolta a bőrömet, talán az ütőeret keresgélve alatta. Úgy éreztem, a vérem felismerte őt, lassabban és sűrűbben áramlott körbe a testemben, arra várva, hogy kiszabaduljon. Verejtékeztem, de ennek semmi köze nem volt ahhoz, hogy sokan zsúfolódtunk össze a szűk teremben. Vajon most azonnal végez velem, sok száz tanú szeme láttára? Sejtenem kellett volna, hogy valami ehhez hasonló fog történni. Valahányszor megbíztam valakiben, elárultak. Akikbe beleszerettem, mind meghaltak. Mivel ő már amúgy is halott volt, a sorsom ezúttal sem lesz más." 99 éven aluli olvasóink számára csak nagykorú felügyelete mellett ajánlott!
Sherrilyn Kenyon - Seize the Night
Valerius isn't a popular Dark-Hunter-he's a Roman, which means that the largely Greek Hunters have a major grudge against him and his civilization for superceding them.

She's sassy, sexy, and completely unwilling to take him seriously. (Not to mention that she's the twin sister of the wife of former Dark-Hunter Kyrian-Val's mortal enemy.) What Tabitha does take seriously is hunting and killing vampires-and soon she and Val have to grapple with the deadliest of all Daimons-one who's managed to come back from the dead, and one who holds a serious grudge against both of them. To win against evil, Val will have to loosen up, learn to trust, and put everything on the line to protect a man he hates and a woman who drives him nuts.
