Fangtastic Friday - October 16, 2009

Well anybody that knows me knows that I am a sucker for vampires. Umm did I just say that?  I mean literally?  lmao  OK I did but for lack of a better description right now; "I adore them" just dont cut it!

Fangtastic Fridays will be my personal pleasure for finding new "fangtastic" books to add to my Got To Read List. New doesn't neccasarily mean new to print just a new find for me. It also is not limited just to my ravenous vamps but a nice lil mixture of werewolf, witches, madness, and mayhem for extra measure!

The first token of pleasure I found was this first book to a new series that has alot of "Merit".  Pun intended because this series is all about Merit and her New Awakening.

Some Girls Bite - Chloe Neill

Synopsis: "Sure, the life of a graduate student wasn’t exactly glamorous, but it was Merit’s. She was doing fine until a rogue vampire attacked her. But he only got a sip before he was scared away by another bloodsucker—and this one decided the best way to save her life was to make her the walking undead.
Turns out her savior was the master vampire of Cadogan House. Now she’s traded sweating over her thesis for learning to fit in at a Hyde Park mansion full of vamps loyal to Ethan “Lord o’ the Manor” Sullivan. Of course, as a tall, green-eyed, four-hundred- year-old vampire, he has centuries’ worth of charm, but unfortunately he expects her gratitude— and servitude. But an inconvenient sunlight allergy and Ethan’s attitude are the least of her concerns. Someone’s still out to get her. Her initiation into Chicago’s nightlife may be the first skirmish in a war—and there will be blood."

Next up I found this delicious tidbit.
3 Days to Dead - Kelly Meding
Synopsis: "They’ll never see her coming. . . .
When Evangeline Stone wakes up naked and bruised on a cold slab at the morgue—in a stranger’s body, with no memory of who she is and how she got there—her troubles are only just beginning. Before that night she and the two other members of her Triad were the city’s star bounty hunters, mercilessly cleansing the city of the murderous creatures living in the shadows, from vampires to shape-shifters to trolls. Then something terrible happened that not only cost all three of them their lives but also convinced the city’s other Hunters that Evy was a traitor—and she can’t even remember what it was.
Now she’s a fugitive, piecing together her memory, trying to deal some serious justice—and discovering that she has only three days to solve her own murder before the reincarnation spell wears off. Because in three days Evy will die again—but this time there’s no second chance. . . ."
