New Release Tuesday in the Realms of Sci-Fi and Fantasy

Dark Slayer by Christine Feehan (Author) best selling author of paranormal romances
Ivory-a rare Carpathian female-has been protected by her brothers for most of her life. But once she frees the mage Razvan from his prison cave, they must flee together, enemies of Carpathian hunters as well as vampires. Ivory senses that Razvan is more than he appears to be, and she vows to go against the entire Carpathian race to help him, risking both their lives in order to save their love.

Must Love Hellhounds by Ilona Andrews (Author), Charlaine Harris (Author), Nalini Singh (Author), Meljean Brook (Author)
Okay, I admit it, I selected this one strictly for its name…after all, who can resist those lovable Hellhounds?!?!

According to Amazon:
In these hound-eat-hound worlds, anything goes… and everything bites. Follow paranormal bodyguards Clovache and Batanya into LuciferÂ’s realm, where they encounter his fearsome four-legged pets, in Charlaine HarrisÂ’s The Britlingens Go to Hell. Seek out a traitor in the midst of a guild of non- lethal vampire trackers, one that intends to eradicate the entire species of bloodsuckers, in Nalini SinghÂ’s AngelsÂ’ Judgment. Find out why the giant three-headed dog that guards the gates of Hades has left the underworld for the real world—and whose scent heÂ’s following—in Ilona AndrewsÂ’s Magic Mourns. Embark on a perilous search for the kidnapped niece of a powerful vampire alongside her blind— and damn sexy—companion and a hellhound in Meljean BrookÂ’s Blind Spot.

Not sure why, but the title "Must Love Hellhounds" is amusing (in a must-read kind of way). Someone was right-on in choosing it.

More vampires? I need some good YA or adult fantasy with no vampires.

Elizabeth Spann Craig said...

Oh, the hellhound one is a great title. Pulls you right in!

Hi everyone - thanks for stopping by for todays fantasy and sci-fi selections. I have to admit, the "Must Love Hellhounds" title made me chuckle!

I know, Patricia, there's a lot of vampire lore out there. It's always been popular but I think Twilight really opened up the floodgates. You might enjoy the Dresden Files series - the main character is a wizard PI - a little mystery, a little fantasy blend, ummmm...but the wizard's half brother is a vampire.

I saw a book named Teenage Blood Sucking Vampires or something like that. I'm like, where do these authors come up with these names? Hilarious.

I used to own a Hellhound, actually. Vet bills, groomer bill, dog-sitter bills, and chew-up-the-furniture bills were my clues. I didn't see any vamps, though. Maybe I just wasn't looking.

Best Regards, Galen

Stephen - I hear you, some of the titles definitely catch your attention though!

Galen - you are too funny! Those hellhounds are something else...so warm and uh, toothy!

I prefer ghost stories to vampires, but both of these titles sound interesting. I'm reading Wicked Lovely now, about faeries. It is awesome.

Great post, Nancy.



N A Sharpe said...

I like the paranormal as well, Bev. I'll have to check out Wicked Lovely...love a good book of fae!
