Infinity: Chronicles of Nick
Infinity: Chronicles of Nick by Sherrilyn Kenyon


At fourteen, Nick Gautier thinks he knows everything about the world around him. Streetwise, tough and savvy, his quick sarcasm is the stuff of legends. . .until the night when his best friends try to kill him. Saved by a mysterious warrior who has more fighting skills than Chuck Norris, Nick is sucked into the realm of the Dark-Hunters: immortal vampire slayers who risk everything to save humanity.

Nick quickly learns that the human world is only a veil for a much larger and more dangerous one: a world where the captain of the football team is a werewolf and the girl he has a crush on goes out at night to stake the undead.

But before he can even learn the rules of this new world, his fellow students are turning into flesh eating zombies. And he’s next on the menu.
 

As if starting high school isn't hard enough. . .now Nick has to hide his new friends from his mom, his chainsaw from the principal, and keep the zombies and the demon Simi from eating his brains, all without getting grounded or suspended. How in the world is he supposed to do that?

The Souls of the Fire DragonThe Souls of the Fire Dragon by John Wrieden

Fate leaned back in his chair and smiled. "The right man in the wrong place can make all the difference." Death nodded in concurrence. "Wake up, Akea, and see the truth." A young man awakens suddenly in a cold, dark alleyway with no recall of who he is or how he got there. A woman is leaning over him, urging him to flee with her. 'The Watchmen are coming!' she warns him. He goes with her and soon recovers not only his name. Akea, but discovers that he is a powerful magician, albeit with an unfortunate lack of self-control. Together, with a small band of rebels, magicians and one very seductive female dragon, he fights for the freedom of his city and country, which lie under the tyrannical yoke of dark magicians and brutal men.

Shadow Bound Shadow Bound by Erin Kellison

Death
Some people will do anything to avoid it. Even trade their immortal souls for endless existence.
Wraiths
Secretly, inexorably, they are infiltrating our world, sucking the essence out of unsuspecting victims with their hideous parody of a kiss.
Segue
Adam Thorne founded the Institute to study and destroy his monster of a brother, but the key to its success is held in the pale, slender hand of a woman on the run. There is something hauntingly different about Talia O’Brien, her unknowing sensuality, her uncanny way of slipping into Shadow.
Twilight
This is the place between life and what comes after - a dark forest of fantasy, filled with beauty, peril, mystery. And Talia is about to open the door.

My Avenging Angel: Angels and DemonsMy Avenging Angel  by Madelyn Ford

To save her life, he must break a covenant-and lose his heart.
An Angels and Demons story.

It-s Victoria Bloom-s twenty-fifth birthday. But is she out celebrating? Oh, no. She-s in a stuffy old attic with the Three Stooges-a.k.a. her so-called spirit guides. There-s a demon who wants her dead, the same one that killed her mother two decades ago. No worries, say the Stooges. All she has to do is summon an angel. What could go wrong?

Well, plenty when you summon the wrong angel. The next thing Tory knows, she-s got one very bad-ass, pissed-off and sexy Archangel on her hands.

Michael, mighty warrior, leader of an elite team of demon killers, is shaking in his heavenly combat boots. Not because he finds all humans distasteful. But because he-d rather face Lucifer himself than the woman his soul has just recognized as his mate. Binding himself to a mortal, one who will eventually die, is the one path he-s sworn never to follow.

It-s too late now; his fate is sealed. With one touch, she becomes as necessary to him as the air he breathes. He will move heaven and earth to protect her-but against a demon as powerful as Asmodeus, heaven and earth may not be enough-

Warning: This book contains one bad-ass Archangel with a fiery, um, sword, a witch who blows things up, one nasty demon who is trying to kill them both, and ghosts who make interfering their mission. Steamy sex is had, even with the voyeur ghosts-though Tory is still blushing.

Wind and Fire by Cheryl Landmark

Zardonne, Master of the Dark Rift, has ripped a hole in the fabric of Tellaron and invaded with an army of hideous demons.

Oblivious to the dangers and evil brewing beyond the borders of the quiet Ardis Valley where she lives, nineteen year old Tenya toils through a life of dreary loneliness and drudgery, plagued by strange, disturbing visions, yearning desperately for the beautiful mother she had not seen since she was three. Her life is abruptly turned upside down when she is abducted in the middle of the night and sent on a perilous journey that will test her courage and the fledgling powers buried deep within her. For not only does she discover that her missing mother, Elea, is a powerful sorceress able to control the forces of the wind, Tenya also learns that she herself possesses a singing power that manifests itself as white fire throughout her body. Can she find her mother, and the strength to use her own powers, in time to save Tellaron from the evil Demon Master? Her world depends upon it.

Just because books are listed in this post does not guarantee that they will be reviewed.
