News – Two New Series To Look Forward To

Two well known authors in the urban fantasy and paranormal romance world are coming out with new series in the near future.

First there is Larissa Ione.  I love her.  Her stories are top notch and her world building is incredible.  She is writing a new series called MoonBound Clan Vampire and it is not going to be set in her Underworld General world!  The first book, Bound by Night, will release on September 24th 2013 and I will definitely be picking it up as soon as it hits shelves.

Check it out:

The first installment in a sexy new paranormal romance series by Larissa Ione, author of the bestselling Demonica series!

Nicole Martin was only eight years old when she narrowly survived a massacre: her family’s vampire slaves rebelled and killed everyone in her household. Twenty years later, Nicole now dedicates herself to finding a vaccine against vampirism…and eradicating the gruesome memories that give her nightmares.

Riker, a member of the wild vampire Moon Clan, is haunted by his own demons—his wife Lorraine had been captured and enslaved by the Martin family. It was during a botched escape attempt that she was killed, along with their unborn child. Still wracked with grief and anger, Riker is now fueled solely by the desire to rescue vampire slaves…and slaughter their owners.

When Riker stumbles upon Nicole in a chance meeting, he immediately recognizes her as a member of the Martin family that once enslaved his wife—and she recognizes him as the wild vampire she saw kissing a pregnant slave in the moments before her violent death—an image that has haunted her dreams for years.

When Riker kidnaps Nicole and they spend a night together in a cave on the way back to his clan, suddenly they begin to realize that they aren’t as different from one another as they may have thought—and they’re finding themselves drawn to one another…

Sounds SOOOO good!  As I mentioned, book one will release in September 2013 and the second book, Chained by Night, is due out June 1st 2014.

Next is a new series by the funny and talented Jaye Wells.  She is another author who is always unique and interesting in her writing.  Her new series is called the Prospero’s War and the first book, Dirty Magic, is due to release in January 2014.  No blurb yet but the cover is cool and I’ve added what Jaye had to say about the series for the cover reveal on Bookish.

“It was incredibly fun to combine the grittier, hard-boiled elements of crime fiction with a fantasy-based criminal underworld run by wizards. Even though these books will be marketed as Urban Fantasy, I like to think of them as speculative crime fiction or cops-and-wizards novels.

Kate Prospero is a new breed of Urban Fantasy heroine. She doesn’t shoot first and ask questions later. She’s far too jaded by the system to go off into a rage. Even though she was born an Adept, she walked away from magic years ago, so she’s got to rely on her wits and her training to navigate the War on Dirty Magic. Still, her past with the dirty magic covens will definitely complicate the hell out of her cases.

The world was a blast to create. Babylon, Ohio is a dying rust belt town, and within the city is a magical slum called The Cauldron. The setting is definitely its own character and is filled with covens of wizards, magical informants and potion junkies.

Unlike my Sabina Kane books, which should be read in order, I’ve planned this series to be more episodic in nature. Each book will feature standalone crimes to solve but with character relationship arcs that carry over from book to book.

But fans of the Sabina series will definitely find a lot of familiar elements in Kate Prospero’s world–lots of action, humor, crazy characters and tons of twists and turns. Reading it will feel a lot like spending a wild night in a magical dive bar.”

Doesn’t that sound great?!  I’ll share the blurb once it’s made available.  Jaye signed a three book deal so we’ll be reading Prospero’s War for a bit.  In my opinion, that is good news.  Dirty Magic is yet another book I’ll be picking up as soon as it hits shelves.  🙂

Happy Weekend and Happy Easter to those of you who celebrate!
