Vampire$ is about a tightly knit group of professional vampire killers. They may say they’re in it for the money, but their death-defying bravado and warm male friendships are as intense as those in any soldier-hero epic. The irrepressible, foul-mouthed, hard-drinkin’ Jack Crow—decked out in high-tech chain mail and wielding a fearsome crossbow—is the leader of the bunch. He’s the sort of man who screams obscenities at the pope, and then (after a lot of booze) weeps in the pontiff’s lap over the horrors he’s witnessed.
St. Vladimir’s Academy isn’t just any boarding school—it’s a hidden place where vampires are educated in the ways of magic and half-human teens train to protect them. Rose Hathaway is a Dhampir, a bodyguard for her best friend Lissa, a Moroi Vampire Princess. They’ve been on the run, but now they’re being dragged back to St. Vladimir’s—the very place where they’re most in danger...
Rose and Lissa become enmeshed in forbidden romance, the Academy’s ruthless social scene, and unspeakable nighttime rituals. But they must be careful lest the Strigoi—the world’s fiercest and most dangerous vampires—make Lissa one of them forever.
The mansion on top of Benson Hill has stood empty for years. But one day
it seems to be occupied, and its mysterious, handsome inhabitant
Alexander Sterling becomes the source of much talk around town.
Raven, a vampire-obsessed Goth-girl who has always considered herself an
outsider in "Dullsville," is determined to uncover the truth surrounding
the secretive Alexander. As she gets to know him, and their spark
intensifies, Raven finds herself in some unanticipated situations. Can
Alexander make her lifelong dream come true? But love always has its
complications-especially when it can only be awakened at nightfall.
Raven is back with her vampire beau Alexander in VAMPIREVILLE. Not much background is given here, so readers should definitely go back and read the first two books in this funny series by Ellen Schreiber to prepare for this adventure. In this volume, Raven and Alexander try to meet for the few hours each day when both are awake. Raven is literally dying to have Alexander turn her into a vampire on sacred ground (like a cemetery), making her his eternal mate. But he likes her for who she is and is unwilling to take that final step.

When Harper digs into her own past, she unearths some unpleasant truths about her father's early death as well as a mysterious puzzle. Forced by some very demanding vampires to take on an investigation in London, she soon discovers her present troubles in England are entangled with her dark past back in Seattle—and her ultimate destiny as a Greywalker.

Annie, una bambina di sette anni, comincia a essere colta da strane crisi durante le quali sogna eventi passati che lei non ha vissuto e tragici fatti che puntualmente si verificano.

East Antarctica: The coldest, most desolate location on Earth. Two-and-a-half miles below the ice cap is Vostok, a six thousand square mile liquid lake, over a thousand feet deep, left untouched for more than 15 million years. Now, marine biologist Zachary Wallace and two other scientists aboard a submersible tethered to a laser will journey 13,000 feet beneath the ice into this unexplored realm to discover Mesozoic life forms long believed extinct — and an object of immense power responsible for the evolution of modern man.
In this sequel to The Loch and prequel to the upcoming MEG 5: Nightstalkers, New York Times best-selling author Steve Alten offers readers a crossover novel that combines characters from two of his most popular series.
At a small research station in the most remote place on earth, a handful of scientists are about to make a terrible discovery. Underneath miles of ice, life exists. Mankind has never been exposed to it before, and the results are immediate and deadly. In the midst of the Antarctic winter, nobody can get in, and nobody can get out. Will anyone survive until the weather improves enough for the first flight to arrive? Will the danger escape and make its way back to society? One thing is certain—if Professor Francis Hamlin had his way, he never would have come to this forsaken place.
