First it was an interest in Twilight. Soon that branched out as about 10 of us started looking for other series to read. As time went on, we all seemed to find a different series and in talking with people, I'd start recommending what someone else had told me about and reading them myself. SOON.....we have a group of 10 of us reading through a bunch of fantastic series that are out there. I'd like to share them with you and add to this list as I discover more....
House of Night Series by PC Cast and Kristin Cast
So far the series is seven books ... book number 8, Awakened, due out in January 2011. The House of Night series is set in a world very much like our own, except in 16-year-old Zoey Redbird's world, vampyres have always existed. Zoey enters the House of Night, a school where, after having undergone the Change, she will train to become an adult vampire--that is, if she makes it through the Change. Not all of those who are chosen do.
The Vampire Academy Series by Richelle Mead
Book six, Last Sacrifice, is due out December 2010. Two races of vampires walk our world. One, the Moroi, are alive and wield elemental magical. The other, the Strigoi, are undead and evil--feeding on the innocent to survive. Rose Hathaway--a half-vampire with poor impulse control--is training to be a bodyguard for a Moroi princess. Learning to decapitate and stake is hard enough, but Rose's real danger may lie in an illicit romance with one of her instructors...
The Immortals Series by Alyson Noel.
Book five, Night Star, is expected in November 2010. Since a horrible accident claimed the lives of her family, Ever can see auras, hear people's thoughts, and know a person's entire life story by touch. But everything changes when she meets Damen...
Fallen Series by Lauren Kate.
Two books in this new series, I have no further information on future installments. An intensely addictive story about fallen angels and forbidden love.
Wolves of Mercy Falls Series by Maggie Stiefvater.
Two books in this new series, again I have no information at this time about future books. For years, Grace has watched the wolves in the woods behind her house. One yellow-eyed wolf--her wolf--is a chilling presence she can't seem to live without. Meanwhile, Sam has lived two lives: In winter, the frozen woods, the protection of the pack, and the silent company of a fearless girl. In summer, a few precious months of being human . . . until the cold makes him shift back again.
The MacKayla Lane Series by Karen Marie Moning.
DEFINITELY more adult than the previous books and dealing with adult issues is Karen Marie Monings "fever series" as I call them. Book five, Shadowfever, is due out January 2011.
