Tempest Rising cartoon cover of anime looking girl rising from some murky water Book Tempest RisingTempest Rising by Nicole Peeler is $1.99 this month, and is book #1 in this series about heroine Jane True. You might recognize this book from the original cover (right), which was so unlike anything in romance at the time, it created a good bit of discussion. The series is now six books long so if you like this one, there's more. I've heard many readers talk about how much they love this series.

 Living in small town Rockabill, Maine, Jane True always knew she didn't quite fit in with so-called normal society. During her nightly, clandestine swim in the freezing winter ocean, a grisly find leads Jane to startling revelations about her heritage: she is only half-human. Now, Jane must enter a world filled with supernatural creatures alternatively terrifying, beautiful, and deadly- all of which perfectly describe her new “friend,” Ryu, a gorgeous and powerful vampire. It is a world where nothing can be taken for granted: a dog can heal with a lick; spirits bag your groceries; and whatever you do, never-ever rub the genie's lamp.

 Book Blood Rights

 

 

Blood Rights is book 1 in the House of Comarre series. Last Blood comes out 30 July 2013. This book is part of Orbit's digital drop for July, and is $2.99.

 The lacy gold mapped her entire body. A finely wrought filigree of stars, vines, flowers, butterflies, ancient symbols and words ran from her feet, up her legs, over her narrow waist, spanned her chest and finished down her arms to the tips of her fingers.

Born into a life of secrets and service, Chrysabelle's body bears the telltale marks of a comarré—a special race of humans bred to feed vampire nobility. When her patron is murdered, she becomes the prime suspect, which sends her running into the mortal world…and into the arms of Malkolm, an outcast vampire cursed to kill every being from whom he drinks.

Now, Chrysabelle and Malkolm must work together to stop a plot to merge the mortal and supernatural worlds. If they fail, a chaos unlike anything anyone has ever seen will threaten to reign.

    Feed is AMAZING.  Be warned that you will need to read all three books.  You won’t want to – you will need to, like you need to breathe and stuff.  I read one of the Tempest boks and it was – OK.  My favorite thing about it was the cover art.  But I picked up one of the books mid-series so some of the things that didn’t make sense to me then might have been explained earlier in the series.

    Seconded. Feed is absolutely amazing. As are the other two books in the trilogy.
    When the last book came out, I tried to read it as slowly as possible, because once it was done, the trilogy was over, and I wasn’t ready for that…but I gorged anyway. The books are that good, you can’t help but put your life on hold.

    For anyone (everyone, probably) sick of zombies, this trilogy is for you. Yes, zombies are the platform, and there are some really scary moments, but the character development was the big thing for me. There are some really cool, interesting, well developed and original characters in the series. And,  the plotting; really terrific damn plotting. And the zombies are not the worst monsters in the book, a detail that I loved. The books read like suspense/mystery, not horror (in my opinion). I LOVE this trilogy.

    I defy anyone to read this trilogy and not adore it. Seriously.

    Allow me to pile on the Feed fangirl wagon, a book I still think about. I’ve not read the third yet as I’m hoping for a price reduction, but my resolve is not strong: I need to know what happened!

    I enjoyed Tempest Rising although I didn’t go on to read the rest. Has anybody read Kristen Painter’s book?

    Rachel says:

    Yep, me too!  Feed was friggin awesome, and I cannot WAIT to read the others.  I chose a book from the list for the RITA reviews, so it took precedence, but I can’t wait to pick up the other two once I’m done!

    I had moments when I was able to read Feed at work.  It didn’t work out too well for anyone who tried to approach me, foolishly believing that their problems were more important than Shaun and Georgia’s.  What a great, unputdownable trilogy.

    The whole “gold tattoos” thing with the Comarre series really reminded me of Jacqueline Carey’s Kushiel series. I started “Blood Rights” and read right along up to about 2/3s of the book, then I set it down and didn’t pick it back up. Maybe it’s time I gave it another try…

    Also, I am totally one of those people who is utterly SICK of zombies and post-apocalyptic nonsense. I really REALLY am. However, since you guys recommend FEED so highly, I’ll at least try the free excerpt.

    Capcha: deal66 – because when you guys post links to books on sale, I usually end up buying at least 66.

    Add me to the “Feed was amazing!” group. I couldn’t put the series down, and raced through all the books and the novellas that connected to it. In fact, I just voted for Blackout for the Hugo Award for best SF/Fantasy novel of the year.

    I didn’t think of Feed as a zombie book so much as I did a great SF dystopia novel.  Highly recommended.

    Chiming in with love for Feed. I inhaled the whole series.  Granted, Seanan McGuire is my #1 read-anything author, but there is a reason for that.

    I have zero interest in zombies and thus avoided this series for quite a while, and bit was that a mistake.  I was most reminded of Stephen King, though I agree with Darlene that this reads more like a political thriller than a horror story.  The character development and world-building is truly outstanding.  Man, now I want to go buy the ebook, and I already own it.

    Niki says:

    “but,” not “bit”

    And I should maybe clarify that Mira Grant is the name Seanan McGuire is using for her horror fiction.
