The Historian

by Elizabeth Kostova

To you, perceptive reader, I bequeath my history....Late one night, exploring her father's library, a young woman finds an ancient book and a cache of yellowing letters. The letters are all addressed to "My dear and unfortunate successor," and they plunge her into a world she never dreamed of-a labyrinth where the secrets of her father's past and her mother's mysterious fate connect to an inconceivable evil hidden in the depths of history.The letters provide links to one of the darkest powers that humanity has ever known-and to a centuries-long quest to find the source of that darkness and wipe it out. It is a quest for the truth about Vlad the Impaler, the medieval ruler whose barbarous reign formed the basis of the legend of Dracula. Generations of historians have risked their reputations, their sanity, and even their lives to learn the truth about Vlad the Impaler and Dracula. Now one young woman must decide whether to take up this quest herself-to follow her father in a hunt that nearly brought him to ruin years ago, when he was a vibrant young scholar and her mother was still alive. What does the legend of Vlad the Impaler have to do with the modern world? Is it possible that the Dracula of myth truly existed-and that he has lived on, century after century, pursuing his own unknowable ends? The answers to these questions cross time and borders, as first the father and then the daughter search for clues, from dusty Ivy League libraries to Istanbul, Budapest, and the depths of Eastern Europe. In city after city, in monasteries and archives, in letters and in secret conversations, the horrible truth emerges about Vlad the Impaler's dark reign-and about a time-defying pact that may have kept his awful work alive down through the ages.Parsing obscure signs and hidden texts, reading codes worked into the fabric of medieval monastic traditions-and evading the unknown adversaries who will go to any lengths to conceal and protect Vlad's ancient powers-one woman comes ever closer to the secret of her own past and a confrontation with the very definition of evil. Elizabeth Kostova's debut novel is an adventure of monumental proportions, a relentless tale that blends fact and fantasy, history and the present, with an assurance that is almost unbearably suspenseful-and utterly unforgettable.

Dracula

by Bram Stoker

2.5 avg rating
A dreary castle, blood-thirsty vampires, open graves at midnight, and other gothic touches fill this chilling tale about a young Englishman's confrontation with the evil Count Dracula. A horror romance as deathless as any vampire, the blood-curdling tale still continues to hold readers spellbound a century later.

The Dark-hunter Series

by Sherrilyn Kenyon

In the war against vampires, mankind has only one hope: The Dark-Hunters. Ancient warriors who died of brutal betrayal, the Dark-Hunters have sworn themselves into the service of the goddess Artemis to protect us.

It’s a pact with pretty good perks. Immortality, power, psychic abilities, wealth and a cool wardrobe. But it comes with a few drawbacks: fatal sun poisoning and a new, irreparable dental problem. But aside from the fangs and nocturnal lifestyle, it’s not so bad.
 
Until Kyrian meets the most frightening thing imaginable. An accountant who’s being hunted by one of the most lethal vampires out there. If Amanda Devereaux goes down, so does he and no offense, he doesn’t want to die (hence the whole immortality thing). And he doesn’t want humanity dead either which is a good thing for us since he and Amanda are all that stands between us and oblivion. Let’s hope they win.
 
From the wild imagination of Sherrilyn Kenyon comes the humorous and suspenseful manga debut of the #1 internationally bestselling Dark-Hunter series. The world of manga will never be the same again.

Fevre Dream

by George R.R. Martin

A THRILLING REINVENTION OF THE VAMPIRE NOVEL BY THE MASTER OF MODERN FANTASY, GEORGE R. R. MARTIN
 
Abner Marsh, a struggling riverboat captain, suspects that something’s amiss when he is approached by a wealthy aristocrat with a lucrative offer. The hauntingly pale, steely-eyed Joshua York doesn’t care that the icy winter of 1857 has wiped out all but one of Marsh’s dilapidated fleet; nor does he care that he won’t earn back his investment in a decade. York’s reasons for traversing the powerful Mississippi are to be none of Marsh’s concern—no matter how bizarre, arbitrary, or capricious York’s actions may prove. Not until the maiden voyage of Fevre Dream does Marsh realize that he has joined a mission both more sinister, and perhaps more noble, than his most fantastic nightmare—and humankind’s most impossible dream.

Ravens Deep

by Jane Jordan

Madeline Shaw is drawn into the life of the mysterious Mr. Chambers when she accepts an invitation to stay at Ravens Deep, a beautiful old house, remotely situated on the wooded coast of Exmoor in England.  Soon after her arrival she meets the equally enigmatic Darius. His enchanting nature and their mutual attraction form the basis of a relationship.

But Ravens Deep conceals a chilling secret.

While Madeline deals with a supernatural presence in the house, Darius must protect her from a life few could imagine to be real, and none allowed to survive. Their love promises to destroy them both, and Darius demands that she leave him and return to London.

Still Darius dominates her every thought, and when Madeline discovers his deadly secret, her future seems clear. Despite the terrible legacy steeped in blood and desire, she is compelled to return to Ravens Deep.

From the strong gothic imagery of the moors, to the darker side of city life in London, Madeline and Darius’s connection defies the boundaries of time, combining vampire superstition with a complex and modern love story.

A Memoir Of Carl

by Jane Jordan

A Memoir of Carl is the conclusive book in the Ravens Deep Trilogy. This is the story of one man's emotional and psychological journey, in which he tries to make sense of the terror that has befallen him. For Carl was bitten by a vampire. He was left for dead, but that mercy did not happen. Instead he was propelled into a dark unknown, where unimaginable horrors force him to realise his sinister nature. Now, he is determined to find the girl that destroyed his life so easily. He believes that only she can make sense of his destiny, and give him the answers he needs. But his quest is hindered by powerful reflections and the unwavering love of Sarah, a ballerina. That dominant emotion keeps him bound, it forces him to hear the echo's and bear witness to the life he left behind. Carl must find a balance within this time, without destroying his one true love, and his destruction can easily come about, if not from the modern world, then from another vampire. But loss is inevitable, and when fate takes Sarah from him, Carls reveals his shocking ulterior motive, why this memoir had to be written. A Memoir of Carl is set against the historic backdrop of Stirling, Scotland and its historic castle, the prestigious London opera house and a gothic stately home. All of which paints a remarkable picture that is rich in detail, and unexpectedly chilling.

How To Marry A Millionaire Vampire

by Kerrelyn Sparks

The Winter of Enchantment

by Victoria Clayton

A magic mirror enables Sebastian to travel from his Victorian world of winter snow and Mrs Parkin to a magic world of Melissa, Mantari, and wicked Enchanter and many other exciting people.

This wonderful book follows in the great tradition of the E. Nesbit magic books. Since its first publication in 1969 it has proved its appeal to children of every age.

Long out of print until republished by Fidra Books in the UK and Purple House Press in the USA, it received praise from respected children's authors including:

Garth Nix - "...I prize my copy of The Winter of Enchantment very highly and suggest you seek it out. A great fantasy tale of a young boy who must undertake a quest to free a girl from the eternal prison of the Enchanter, aided only by the Silver Teapot, Mantari the cat (who ate the Silver Fish and so inadvertently took its power), the Seasons, and their own courage. Somebody should republish this book!"

Neil Gaiman: "I remember it as being utterly magical." Interviewed by Jayne Nelson for SFX Magazine he said that he had first read The Winter of Enchantment at the age of 8 or 9, and recalled how the story had stayed with him. "I remember running across the book again when I was 12 and it being just as strange - scenes remained, and characters. And when I was 42 and read it again, it was just as vivid." ... ther's a point of view of the fragility of the world and of the nature of the powers beyond it that I definitely absorbed..."

The sequel - The House Called Hadlows - is also now available as a Kindle book.
