Sword Kissed by Leigh Anderson

Demons of Japanese myth lurk in Chiyoko Hollow, and if they aren’t stopped soon, the magic of the lands will be twisted beyond salvation.

Akari Tanaka is Sword Kissed, a human born with the power to harness magic through her katana. Her duty is to keep the residents-fae and human alike-safe from the increasingly dangerous demons that haunt Chiyoko Hollow. When people across Chiyoko begin disappearing, Akari is determined to find them-but so is half-fae warrior Takeo, who prefers to work alone.

As the bodies of the missing start turning up, drained of their life force, Akari realizes that they aren’t dealing with just any twisted demon. Now her sensei is missing, her sister has been spirited away, and her childhood rival has united with a demon of smoke and ash. But with their list of enemies growing longer and their allies shorter, if Akari and Takeo can’t learn to work together, the evil that threatens their world will prevail. And once that happens, there’s no turning back.

Fans of J. Y. Yang and Marjorie M. Liu will be spirited away by this dystopian paranormal romance based on Japanese lore.

La Fille du Vampire

Quand Ethan découvre que l’amour de sa vie, Victoria, est en fait la fille unique d’une bête monstrueuse et que pour sauver sa famille, elle a été promise à un autre homme, il décide de se retirer dans un monastère pour vivre le reste de ses jours seul.

Mais l’Eglise voit les choses différemment.

Le mentor d’Ethan lui demande de guider le célèbre chasseur de vampires Dom Calmet jusqu’à son village natal pour débarrasser la ville des vampires qui la tourmentent. Ethan doit alors faire un voyage, émotionnellement et littéralement, jusqu’à la ville de sa jeunesse et devra choisir entre l’amour et la foi quand il rencontrera une fois de plus la fille du vampire.

Contenant de nombreux tropes d’un roman gothique classique (une héroïne sombre, un héros indécis, un endroit exotique, des références à la littérature classique, un châteaux lugubre, un sentiment d’appréhension du danger) combinés à la sensualité d’un roman moderne, La Fille du Vampire vous gardera en haleine.
