New Girl.
New School.
Old Evil.

From the author of the Chicagoland Vampires novels.

A new series about a boarding school filled with something worse than homework.

Lily's parents have sent her to a fancy boarding school in Chicago filled with the ultra-rich. If that wasn't bad enough, she's hearing and seeing bizarre things on St. Sophie's creepy campus. Her roommate, Scout, keeps her sane, but keeps disappearing at night. When one day Lily finds Scout running from real-life monsters, she learns the hard way that Scout is involved in a splinter group of rebel teens.

They protect Chicago from demons, vamps, and dark magic users. It's too bad Lily doesn't have powers of her own to help. At least, none that she's discovered yet...

Beautiful Dead Book 1: Jonas by Eden Maguire

Description from Amazon

Not alive. Not dead. Somewhere in between lie the Beautiful Dead.

Something strange is happening at Ellerton High. Phoenix is the fourth teenager to die within a year. His street-fight stabbing follows the deaths of Jonas, Summer, and Arizona in equally strange and sudden circumstances. Rumors of ghosts and strange happenings rip through the small community as it comes to terms with shock and loss.

Darina, Phoenix's grief-stricken girlfriend, is on the verge. She can't escape her intense heartache or the impossible apparitions of those that are meant to be dead. And all the while the sound of beating wings echos inside her head...

And then one day Phoenix appears to Darina. He tells her that she must help Jonas-the first of the four to die-right the wrong linked to his death. Only with her help can Jonas finally rest in peace. Will love conquer death? And if it does, can Darina set it free?

I got Firespell a few weeks ago but haven't read it yet. I've never heard of Aries Rising, but it looks good! And I'm really curious about Beautiful Dead, so I can't wait for your review!

Lizzy said...

I got Firespell last week, and need to read it. I haven't read The Wild Things, but I did see the movie, which was also written by Eggers. I think I'll have to, just so I can compare. Enjoy your books.

Stephanie said...

I am really intrigued by The Wild Things!

Erin said...

Wow. That is a lot of comments. I'm not sure yet how I'm going to do reviews, If i do any. They would be more like a mini review/Recommend kinda thing because I'm really bad at typos. And thank you all for the comments and happy reading to you all. :D

Firespell is a really great book. I read it as part of the Debut Author Challenge, and I am pretty sure it is going on my top ten of 2010 list! Seriously.

Happy reading!
