Devil's Moon

A fiercely independent heroine and a loyal, protective hero choose each other amid the turmoil of 15th-century Scotland in this beautifully rendered blend of history and romance. Scott (Moonlight Raider) lives in Folsom, CA.

Prince Lestat

Series fans should not miss this latest foray into Rice's magical world built around the undead, but anyone with an interest in the supernatural and aficionados of richly detailed and lush backdrops will enjoy this epic tale. [See Prepub Alert, 5/1/14.]

The Wolves of Midwinter: The Wolf Gift Chronicles

Future conflict with the rival wolves, Reuben's family, and authorities are themes Rice devotees will eagerly anticipate in a third installment.

The Laird's Choice

An intrepid laird's daughter with rare psychic gifts and a disowned noble warrior find love and adventure in this richly detailed 15th-century Scottish historical from the author frequently credited with creating the subgenre. Scott (Highland Lover) lives in Folsom, CA.

Ten Girls To Watch

Debut author Shumway offers a fresh and modern take on chick lit. Instead of showcasing the melodramatic and helpless, she highlights the power and will of women. There is an inspirational undercurrent without being sappy. Dawn makes a great everywoman, and her story will appeal to girls of all ages.


Johansen's fans will be excited to have a definitive ending to Eve's story. However, this title lacks the punch of a work of suspense or a thriller. [See Prepub Alert, 4/25/11.]

Those Across the River

Buehlman delivers a creepy, suspenseful, and well-crafted debut set in post-Depression era South. The action begins early and never lets up. Recommended for horror fans and those willing to be scared enough to want to stay out of the woods!

The Pack

In this tightly written werewolf suspense thriller, crime writer Starr (The Chill) succeeds in keeping readers on the edge of their seats. The book brings werewolves to the streets of New York City and manages to seem completely believable. A great read; recommended for any paranormal suspense fan.


Lopsided, but an integral read for fans of Johansen's Eve Duncan series. [400,000-copy first printing.]—Amanda Scott, Cambridge Springs P.L., PA
