Dr. Danielle McGill doesn't know if she can trust the man who just saved her life. There are too many questions, such as what is the secret organization he says he's part of, and why do his wounds hardly bleed? However, with her sister in the hands of some dangerous men, she doesn't have much choice but to trust him. Except now Decker's talking about life mates and awakening a passion that's taking Dani beyond anything she's ever known. Being undead may not be half-bad...especially if it means spending forever with a man who would love her with his mind, body, and immortal soul.

Ward the Wolf Boy

Author:Famous John Urban

Publisher:Xlibris Corporation


Total Pages:120



Books Description:

All his young life growing up at the Home for Young Gentleman Orphanage a talented but misunderstood boy named Ward was told that he was different than the other boys and didnt fit in because he had recurring dreams about half men, half wolf monsters and obsessively drew them. But were these visions dreams or memories? Was his diagnosis of having sleep tremors accurate or was he in fact starting to turn into a werewolf? There is truth to all myths and legends, and sometimes the worst monsters are not the ones hiding in closets or under beds. Ward the Wolf Boy explores overcoming abuse and neglect and embracing your true inner self, and Ward finds out that being a werewolf doesnt make you a bad person. What makes this book unique is several key factors. Werewolves are usually mindless killing monsters and they are usually just a sidekick for vampires or wizards and are rarely a main character in books despite their popularity. Ward and the other werewolves in "Ward the Wolf Boy" is more of a shape shifter and not a monster or a killer. In this adaption of the werewolf legend when werewolves turn they can still speak and think and behave like their normal human selves, only with greater strength and keener wolf like senses. While there are vampires in the series, they are the natural enemies of werewolves and they are grotesque teritorial killers. But this book is primarily about werewolves. They are the stars and heros of the series. "Ward the Wolf Boy, Night Terrors" is an introduction to the heros and villains of the series of books that are already in the planning stages. It appeals to the young and young at heart, and the author hopes that its readers will grow up with the young boy werewolf as he understands and fullfills his destiny.

Vampires Are Us

Author:Margot Adler

Publisher:Weiser Books


Total Pages:256



Books Description:

The author of Drawing Down the Moon offers a "literate, imaginative, and just plain fascinating” exploration of the enduring allure of vampires (Whitley Strieber, author of The Hunger). Author and NPR correspondent Margot Adler found herself newly drawn to vampire novels while sitting vigil at her dying husband’s bedside. Intrigued by the way this ever-evolving myth lets us contemplate mortality, she embarked on a years-long journey of reading hundreds vampire novels—from teen to adult, from gothic to modern, from detective to comic. She began to see just how each era creates the vampires it needs. Dracula, an Eastern European monster, was the perfect vehicle for 19th-century England’s fear of outsiders and of disease seeping in through its large ports. In 1960s America, the television show Dark Shadows gave us the morally conflicted vampire struggling against his own predatory nature, who still enthralls us today. From Bram Stoker to Ann Rice; from vampire detective thrillers to lesbian vampire fiction; and from Buffy the Vampire Slayer to Twilight and True Blood, Vampires Are Us explores the issues of power, politics, morality, identity, and even the fate of the planet that show up in vampire novels today. Perhaps, Adler suggests, our blood is oil, perhaps our prey is the planet. Perhaps vampires are us.

Books Description:

In all the darkest pages of the malign supernatural there is no more terrible tradition than that of the Vampire, a pariah even among demons. Foul are his ravages; gruesome and seemingly barbaric are the ancient and approved methods by which folk must rid themselves of this hideous pest. Even to-day in certain quarters of the world, in remoter districts of Europe itself, Transylvania, Slavonia, the isles and mountains of Greece, the peasant will take the law into his own bands and utterly destroy the carrion who--as it is yet firmly believed--at night will issue from his unhallowed grave to spread the infection of vampirism throughout the countryside. Assyria knew the vampire long ago, and he lurked amid the primeval forests of Mexico before Cortes came. He is feared by the Chinese, by the Indian, and the Malay alike; whilst Arabian story tells us again and again of the ghouls who haunt ill-omened sepulchres and lonely cross-ways to attack and devour the unhappy traveller. This book includes everything that there is to know about vampires and the myths around them.
