Thought about doing another Cover Coveting post, because I’ve still got a lot of lovely covers coming in!
However, I’ve missed sharing and talking about the books that I’ve been lusting after. (Out side of coveting those lovely little covers!)
Here Be Sexist Vampires by Suzanne Wright
Sam Parker is a vampire with a gift so strong and substantial that she is invited to partake in a test for a place in the Grand High Master Vampire’s private army. She finds that not only has the army never included a woman, but it has never included a Sventé vampire; a breed that is regarded by the super strong Pagori breed and the hypnotically beautiful Keja breed to be too tame and human-like. Most refuse to take her seriously, especially a Pagori commander named Jared who she craves in spite of herself. The Grand High Master, however, sees her potential and offers her the position of Jared’s co-commander to help train the newest squad in time for the impending attack on his home. Sam has to demonstrate to Jared and the squad of chauvinists why it is incredibly foolish to underestimate a wilful, temperamental, borderline-homicidal Sventé female.
Warning: This novel contains an iron-willed female vampire with an energy whip, a sexist male vampire who is determined to have her, explicit vampy sex, and a romance story with real bite.
To be honest the idea of sexist vampires puts me off. However, the idea of a woman strong enough to put those sexist idiots in their place . . . grrrrrrrrr.Possession by Kat Richardson
When a comatose woman suddenly wakes up and starts painting scenes she’s never witnessed, with a skill she’s never had, medical science has no explanation. As more bizarre phenomena manifest, even her doctors start to wonder if the woman may be possessed. Frustrated and frightened, the patient’s sister reluctantly turns to Greywalker Harper Blaine to discover who—or what—is occupying her sister’s body.
As Harper digs into the case of apparent possession, she discovers other
patients struck with the same mystifying afflictions and a disturbing
connection to one of the most gruesome stories in Washington’s history…
The Greywalker series is one of the original series on the scene for Urban Fantasy. To this day I haven’t read a single book in the series . . . yet I own every book up to date.
At this point I can’t keep using the excuse that I’m waiting for more books to come out! There’s 7 already! Wow!Biting Bad by Chloe Neill
Merit has been a vampire for only a short while, but she’s already seen a lifetime’s worth of trouble. She and her Master, centuries-old Ethan Sullivan, have risked their lives time and again to save the city they love. But not all of Chicago is loving them back.
Anti-vampire riots are erupting all over town, striking vampires where it hurts the most. A splinter group armed with Molotov cocktails and deep-seated hate is intent on clearing the fanged from the Windy City come hell or high water.
Merit and her allies rush to figure out who’s behind the attacks, who will be targeted next, and whether there’s any way to stop the wanton destruction. The battle for Chicago is just beginning, and Merit is running out of time.
Both love and hate this series. I’m waiting for book 8. Oh, I’m waiting.
