Twice the adventure.
Bloodlines Series by Richelle Mead.
A spin off from her YA Urban Fantasy series; Vampire Academy, the Bloodlines series follows the characters Sydney (from book 4 onwards of the Vampire Academy) and Adrian (the spurned love interest of Rose from Vampire Academy). Mead has created a new dynamic with her Bloodlines series; Sydney is a human Alchemist who has been indoctrinated to find vampires abhorrent. This POV lends a new vision and a different tone to her Vampire Academy series. The Golden Lily (book 2) was released this week.
In her Darkest Powers series we were introduced to the Edison Group, a sinister group of paranormals who experimented on their own to find ways to enhance their powers. The Gathering (book 1) introduces us to our new protagonist: Maya. This go round we get an intimate look into the werewolf persona, the usual secrecy, adventure and mystery, and a side of romance. For all your urban fantasy/ paranormal romance readers.
Set five years after Saving Francesca, The Piper’s Son follows Thomas Mackee. Thomas is lost. Stuck between his teenage and adult life, he exists in the status quo. He’s lost his momentum forward. As with everything Marchetta writes this has a strong sense of family, teal life problems and incredible writing. Piper’s Son is for your older and mature readers (the protagonist is in his early 20s).
Technically a prequel, Infernal Devices is set a 150 years in the past. It’s the same Mortal Instruments world, with all your favourite creepy crawly creatures, but it has the added benefit of English accents and London architecture.
Following the lover spurned, Balthazar, we reenter the Evernight world. Fans of the Evernight series will know that Balthazar has had it kind of rough over the last couple of centuries. This has made his a magnet to fans of the Evernight world. He is burdened with feelings of guilt and loneliness. There is also to be a spin-off with Patrice (the snarky and slightly vain) vampire frenemy of Bianca.
