First off, November 1 may be my new favorite day of the year! So many awesome new releases in books today!
This post is dedicated on one of my most favorite adult paranormal/urban fantasy series about some kick ass vampires! The Chicagoland Vampires series stars Merit who weilds a katana and serves her maker, leige, Master vampire Ethan Sullivan as Sential of Cadogan House.
I gave the very first book in this series, Some Girls Bite, the ballsy award. It was an amazing book that looked at how a new born vampire, Merit, joins the ranks of the Cadogan House and kicks just about everyones ass on the way to, basically, 3rd in command. I highly recommend this series. Check out my reviews:
Hard Bitten (no official review — MAJOR cliffhanger!)
My copy of Drink Deep will be awaiting me on my porch when I get home this evening, along with my copies of Crossed by Ally Condie and Reckoning by Lili St. Crow!
To celebrate today’s release of Drink Deep I will personally be ordering a copy for one of my readers! I will buy it in either paperback or eBook (Nook, Kindle, Kobo) as long as the price is comparable to other retailers. I will also ship internationally from The Book Depository!

Orbit has released the cover of Gail Carriger’s next installment of The Parasol Protectorate series, Heartless.
I am NOT a fan of this cover! I’m hating the model and her hair, and the way she’s looking directly out at us. And the back photo is subpar compared to the amazing art work that was used on the previous books (although the giant castle is pretty cool)! The purple I can deal with but BLAH! Highly disappointed in this cover.
But this cover will not stop me from drinking this book in as soon as I can get my bloody hands on it! I LOVE this series with a passion. They are so much fun, witty, and full of loveable characters.
At fourteen, Nick Gautier thinks he knows everything about the world around him. Streetwise, tough and savvy, his quick sarcasm is the stuff of legends. . .until the night when his best friends try to kill him. Saved by a mysterious warrior who has more fighting skills than Chuck Norris, Nick is sucked into the realm of the Dark-Hunters: immortal vampire slayers who risk everything to save humanity. Nick quickly learns that the human world is only a veil for a much larger and more dangerous one: a world where the captain of the football team is a werewolf and the girl he has a crush on goes out at night to stake the undead. But before he can even learn the rules of this new world, his fellow students are turning into flesh eating zombies. And he’s next on the menu.
As if starting high school isn’t hard enough. . .now Nick has to hide his new friends from his mom, his chainsaw from the principal, and keep the zombies and the demon Simi from eating his brains, all without getting grounded or suspended. How in the world is he supposed to do that? — Amazon
If you’ve read Sherrilyn’ Kenyon’s adult Dark-Hunter series then you may recall who Nick is. And I’m sure you won’t want to miss out of unveiling his childhood.
