Ilona Andrews - Iron and Magic
No day is ordinary in a world where Technology and Magic compete for supremacy…But no matter which force is winning, in the apocalypse, a sword will always work. Hugh d’Ambray, Preceptor of the Iron Dogs, Warlord of the Builder of Towers, served only one man. Now his immortal, nearly omnipotent master has cast him aside. Hugh is a shadow of the warrior he was, but when he learns that the Iron Dogs, soldiers who would follow him anywhere, are being hunted down and murdered, he must make a choice: to fade away or to be the leader he was born to be. Hugh knows he must carve a new place for himself and his people, but they have no money, no shelter, and no food, and the necromancers are coming. Fast. Elara Harper is a creature who should not exist. Her enemies call her Abomination; her people call her White Lady. Tasked with their protection, she's trapped between the magical heavyweights about to collide and plunge the state of Kentucky into a war that humans have no power to stop. Desperate to shield her people and their simple way of life, she would accept help from the devil himself—and Hugh d’Ambray might qualify. Hugh needs a base, Elara needs soldiers. Both are infamous for betraying their allies, so how can they create a believable alliance to meet the challenge of their enemies? As the prophet says: “It is better to marry than to burn.” Hugh and Elara may do both.

Kevin Hearne - Hexed - Megátkozva
„Kiderült, hogy ha megölsz egy istent, hirtelen megugrik a népszerűséged.” „Kevin Hearne új lelket lehel az ősi mitológiába, és egy hátborzongatóan ismerős, mégis ijesztően eredeti világot alkot.” Nicole Peeler, a Tempest Rising írója Atticus O’Sullivant nem izgatják túlságosan a boszorkányok. Most mégis arra készül, hogy egy mindkét fél számára előnyős, kölcsönös megnemtámadási egyezményt írjon alá velük, amikor napjaink arizónai Tempéjének boszorkánynépessége hirtelen megnégyszereződik. Ám az új lányok nem csak gonoszak, de a második világháború alatt meglehetősen sötét szerepet töltöttek be a németek oldalán. Miközben egy bukott angyal a helyi középiskola diákjaira vadászik, és a bakkhánsnők vegasi hordája a városba özönlik, hogy ott terjessze az őket jellemző halálos romlást, és egy veszélyesen szexi, kelta tűzistennő Atticus kegyeit keresi, hősünknek ki kell vennie részét a boszorkányüldözésből. De varázskardja, a szomszédjától kölcsönzött gránátvető, valamint vámpír ügyvédje segítségével Atticus készen áll rá, hogy megtisztítsa a várost, és megmutassa a boszorkányos fehérnépeknek, hogy rossz druidával kukoricáztak. „Egy szellemes, új fantasysorozat.” Kelly Meding, a Three Days to Dead írója

He says Rick isn't what he seems, and indulging her passion for him could cost her soul.

Laurell K. Hamilton - Danse Macabre
EXPECT THE UNEXPECTED WITH ANITA BLAKE, VAMPIRE HUNTER "It was the middle of November. I was supposed to be out jogging, but instead I was sitting at my breakfast table talking about men, sex, werewolves, vampires, and that thing that most unmarried but sexually active women fear most . . ." These days, Anita Blake is less interested in vampire politics than in an ancient, ordinary dread she shares with women down the ages: she may be pregnant. And, if she is, whether the father is a vampire, a werewolf, or someone else entirely, she knows perfectly well that being a Federal Marshal known for raising the dead and being a vampire executioner, is no way to bring up a baby.

Cassandra leendő gyermeke menti majd meg a világot a nagy Pusztító rémuralmától, ám egy ősi átok miatt a lány ideje véges: huszonhét évesen kínhalált kell halnia – addig pedig alig néhány hónap van csak hátra… Kettejüknek kell szembeszállniuk a mindenre elszánt szörnyekkel, s a bátor nő végül rabul ejti Wulf fagyos, érzéketlen szívét, s talán elnyerhetik a boldogságot…

Kevin Hearne - Shattered
For nearly two thousand years, there was only one Druid left walking the Earth—Atticus O’Sullivan, the Iron Druid, whose sharp wit and sharp sword kept him alive while pursued by a pantheon of hostile deities. Now he’s got company. Atticus’s apprentice Granuaile is at last a full Druid herself. What’s more, Atticus has defrosted an archdruid long ago frozen in time, a father figure (of sorts) who now goes by the modern equivalent of his old Irish name: Owen Kennedy. And Owen has some catching up to do. Atticus takes pleasure in the role reversal, as the student is now the teacher. Between busting Atticus’s chops and trying to fathom a cell phone, Owen must also learn English. For Atticus, the jury’s still out on whether the wily old coot will be an asset in the epic battle with Norse god Loki—or merely a pain in the arse. But Atticus isn’t the only one with daddy issues. Granuaile faces a great challenge: to exorcise a sorcerer’s spirit that is possessing her father in India. Even with the help of the witch Laksha, Granuaile may be facing a crushing defeat. As the trio of Druids deals with pestilence-spreading demons, bacon-loving yeti, fierce flying foxes, and frenzied Fae, they’re hoping that this time . . . three’s a charm.

Kevin Hearne - Tricked - Átverve
Az eddigi legjobb átverésem az volt, amikor láttam magam meghalni. „Kevin Hearne remek történetmesélő, csípős humorral megáldva. Az Amerikai istenek találkozása a Dresden-aktákkal.” Atticus O’Sullivan, az utolsó druida nem maradt volna életben a kelta ravaszság nélkül kétezer évig. Így amikor a bosszúálló norvég istenek végezni akarnak vele, a még ravaszabb navahó isten, Prérifarkas segítségével elhiteti velük, hogy sikerült megölniük, felaprították az arizonai sivatag kellős közepén. De a trükkös Prérifarkas nem osztogatja ingyen a segítségét. Mire kettőt pislogna, Atticus vérszomjas, sivatagi alakváltókkal találja magát szemközt, amiket a navahók bőrcserélőknek hívnak. Amikor a druida már azt hiszi, hogy kézben tartja a dolgokat, csúnyán elárulja valaki, akiről soha nem hitte volna. Atticus elhatározza, hogy ha ezt túléli, soha többet nem hagyja magát átverni. Milyen szép utolsó szavak! „Atticus egy erős, modern hős, aki mögött nagy múlt áll, és elég ravasz ahhoz, hogy életben maradjon a huszonegyedik században is. Csípős humorral átszőtt elbeszélés… egy vérbeli, kalandos urban fantasy.” _(Library Journal)_

No, he is the father of my children and with the babies on the way, the land dying and the Mages closing in; alliances will have to be formed if we are all to make it through the war that is coming to our front door. Between warring Gods and Goddesses, how are any of us supposed to win?
