Marshall Seaver is being haunted. In the first installment of this chillingly compelling trilogy, sixteen-year-old Marshall discovers that something beyond our world is after him. The eerie clues pile up quickly, and when people start dying, it’s clear whatever this is it’s huge.

Marshall has no idea what’s happening to him, but he’s soon convinced that it has something to do with his best friend Cooper, who’s been missing for over a week. Together with Coop’s sister, Marsh searches for the truth about what happened to his friend, ultimately uncovering something bigger than he could ever have imagined. (From author's website)

Demonkeepers by Jessica Andersen
Publisher: Signet
Release Date: April 6, 2010
480 pages

Lucius is an Indiana Jones wannabe who never quite measures up, until a twist of magic brings him powers beyond belief... and reunites him with Jade, the one-night stand he never forgot.

Despite the sizzling chemistry between them—and the added power that comes with a love match—Jade is determined to prove that she’s more than a researcher … she can be a Nightkeeper warrior in her own right.

But as the two race to rescue the sun god himself from the underworld, they learn that kicking ass isn’t enough. They’ll need all their brains and skill—and the long-denied love that burns between them—to foil the dark lords’ plot. (From author's website)

The Immortals Saga: Immortal by Allison Cassatta
Other details forthcoming.
Will be published this fall.
To keep updated the author's website is here.

There is only one thing in this world that can make you question everything you've ever believed in, make you throw yourself into the face of danger, Love. Madeline never thought she would find love so deep that it transcended the physical world and definitely never thought she would find it in a vampire. But when the body count starts to rise, she begins to question the curiously desirable new interest in her life.

Join two immortal lovers as they race against time and sunlight to save a miracle child that was never meant to exist. Only with the help of other vampires and a witch would they have any chance of surviving. (From the author's website)

Velvet Haven by Sophie Renwick

Pub. Date: March 2, 2010
336 pages

Hidden from mortals for all eternity, Annwyn, the Otherworld, is home to shapeshifters, wraiths and dragons. But in a nightclub called Velvet Haven, desire brings humans and immortals together…

Built atop the mystic passageway to Annwyn, the gothic nightclub Velvet Haven has seen its share of lost souls—both mortal and immortal. It is here that Bran, the shapeshifter king of the Sidhe, searches for his brother, who is ensnared by a centuries-old curse. When a vision foretells his own death, he knows his time to find Carden is running out.

For help he must turn to Mairi, a mortal woman with an unusual aura. Bran has never liked humans, other than using their sexual pleasure to restore his magic energy. But with Mairi everything is different. Her lush curves and teasing caresses enflame him like no Sidhe has ever done. He has no idea that the woman he’s falling for holds the key to his destruction – or his salvation. (From author's website)
