Eine Liebe, stärker als das Leben selbst ... Diana Bishop ist Historikerin mit Leib und Seele. Dass in ihr zudem das Blut eines uralten Hexengeschlechts fließt, versucht sie im Alltag mit aller Kraft zu ignorieren. Doch als Diana in der altehrwürdigen Bodleian-Bibliothek in Oxford ein magisches Manuskript in die Hände fällt, kann sie ihre Herkunft nicht länger verleugnen: Hexen, Dämonen und Vampire heften sich an ihre Fersen, um ihr das geheime Wissen zu entlocken – wenn nötig mit Gewalt. Hilfe erfährt Diana ausgerechnet von Matthew Clairmont, Naturwissenschaftler, 1500 Jahre alter Vampir – und der Mann, der Diana bald schon mehr bedeuten wird als ihr eigenes Leben ... Ein mitreißender, wundervoll erzählter Roman über Magie, Abenteuer und Romantik.

Book one of the New York Times-bestselling All Souls trilogy—"a wonderfully imaginative grown-up fantasy with all the magic of Harry Potter and Twilight” (People). Now “[a] hot show that’s like Twilight meets Outlander” (Thrillist) streaming on Sundance Now and Shudder, and coming to television this April on AMC and BBC America. Deborah Harkness’s sparkling debut, A Discovery of Witches, has brought her into the spotlight and galvanized fans around the world. In this tale of passion and obsession, Diana Bishop, a young scholar and a descendant of witches, discovers a long-lost and enchanted alchemical manuscript, Ashmole 782, deep in Oxford's Bodleian Library. Its reappearance summons a fantastical underworld, which she navigates with her leading man, vampire geneticist Matthew Clairmont. Harkness has created a universe to rival those of Anne Rice, Diana Gabaldon, and Elizabeth Kostova, and she adds a scholar's depth to this riveting tale of magic and suspense. The story continues in book two, Shadow of Night, and concludes with The Book of Life.

THE DEN was inspired by actual events and their resulting, recurring nightmares. Is it possible to run away from yourself? No. Skyla Jane Judge should know. Fresh on the heels of a breakup and college graduation, Skyla Jane Judge feels an inexplicable urge to accompany an attractive stranger on a road trip from New York to New Orleans. Maybe it has something to do with what a psychic has told her about a past life. Maybe some old friends stuck between lives are waiting for her there. Whatever the case, she gives in to the lure of Louisiana’s voodoo country and doesn’t look back. Longing for change, she uncovers a “den” beneath the haunted cobblestone streets of the French Quarter and, in the company of vampires, begins to discover her true self. Skyla embarks on a journey to self-awareness that ultimately uncovers a secret ceremonial path to love and eternal enlightenment. Though change is what she wanted, is she ready for the irrevocable change her “new” friends offer her? THE DEN (47,000 words) is Book #1 of The Vampire’s Witch Saga. Books #2 (IN THE BLOOD) and #3 (THE SEVENTH DAY) in the series are also available for sale.

A fascinating, beautifully illustrated collection of stories from the hit podcast Lore - now an online streaming series They live in shadows - deep in the forest, late in the night, in the dark recesses of our mind. They're spoken of in stories and superstitions, relics of an unenlightened age, old wives' tales, passed down through generations. And yet, no matter how wary and jaded we have become, as individuals or as a society, a part of us remains vulnerable to them. Werewolves and wendigos, poltergeists and vampires, angry elves and vengeful spirits. In this beautifully illustrated volume, the host of the hit podcast Lore serves as a guide on a fascinating journey through the history of these terrifying creatures, and explores not only the legends but what they tell us about ourselves. Aaron Mahnke invites us to the desolate Pine Barrens of New Jersey, where the notorious winged, red-eyed Jersey Devil dwells. Mahnke delves into harrowing accounts of cannibalism-some officially documented, others the stuff of speculation . . . perhaps. He visits the dimly lit rooms where séances take place, the European villages where gremlins make mischief, and Key West, Florida, home of a haunted doll named Robert. The monsters of folklore have become not only a part of our language but a part of our collective psyche. Whether these beasts and bogeymen are real or just a reflection of our primal fears, we know, on some level, that not every mystery has been explained, and that the unknown still holds the power to strike fear deep in our hearts and souls. As Aaron Mahnke reminds us, sometimes the truth is even scarier than the lore... Praise for the Lore podcast 'Truth can often be much scarier than fiction - something Mahnke proves as he dives deep into the world of folklore and the darker side of history in a quest to root out the fragment of truth at the bottom of our fears." - Entertainment Weekly 'Narrated by Mahnke in a style that evokes spooky campfire stories, Lore is a history lesson like no other.' - Esquire

Discovering the mother that you thought was dead for over a decade is very much alive can shake your world. Even more so would be to discover that she has become a mutant-vampire leader and has promised you in marriage to a wicked vampire king in order to unite the two kingdoms. Now, let's combine that with the fact that the bearer of such news is a hot and sexy guy who turns out to be a vampire and he steals your heart. Then, complicate it even more with the fact that he has an equally hot vampire brother vying for your love and who you also have feelings for and you get an idea of Casey's dilemma in this sizzling, action packed first book of paranormal romance thriller trilogy. HERE IS WHAT A FEW READERS ARE SAYING ABOUT BOOK ONE OF THE STEAMY AND EXCITING VAMPIRE TRILOGY... "Whoa!! I desperately want to grab the next book in the series now! The brilliant synopsis and early reviews create such a hype before you even open the book... you feel like you already know the characters. I thought it would spoil some of elements of surprise but no it doesn't. The story is fast paced, gripping, emotional and steamy!! I can't recommend this book highly enough and I will be adding this epic author to my fave list." "It grabbed my attention and I seriously couldn't put it down until I finished it that same day! The plot was excellent. Definitely different from anything I've read. All the characters were well thought out and I felt like I really knew them. This book just sucked me in, I just cannot say enough good things. This author goes to the top of my favs list!" "I will never look at a paranormal book about vampires the same again. This book deals with humans, mutant humans, vampires, mutant vampires, a New World Order after a nuclear war, and the hatred between the groups. ..... What happens throughout this book had me unable to put it down, but man alive it was intense! One of those reads that if I said anything else about this book, I would be giving away key pieces. ..... There are so many things going on in this book. Things that I did not expect to happen did. Things that I did expect to happen did not. The intrigue, mystery, and thrills in this book kept me on my toes." "This book was so good! From the first page I was hooked and it only got better. The romance was sweet and a bit forbidden. The story was intense and fast paced and kept my attention the entire time. The characters were very well developed and relatable. I just really enjoyed this story and highly recommend it." "Vampire Witch, by Eileen Sheehan, is a steamy new adult novel guaranteed to smoke your socks off if you like hot vampire romance." "This story is told beautifully. Pick up this book. You will not be disappointed." "Well worth 5 stars."
