Jivaja, by Venessa M. Giunta

For as long as she can remember, Mecca has had the power to drain life through the touch of her hand. It’s a family secret—both her “gift” and her mother’s unusual death—because Mecca is not the first. Her power came from her father, who has loved and trained her all her life, trying to help her control what she can do.

But he hasn’t told her everything.

Now, her world has collided with an underground society of life drainers who would do anything to control her, and nothing is safe anymore: not her home, not her father, and definitely not her secrets.

Some Assistance Required, by C.L. Ogilvie

Glenda Melner has a mother who (probably) can’t remember her name, a new lawyer boss who happens to be a vampire, and a best friend who’s convinced Glen won’t survive her first week on the job. The firm comes complete with a shapeshifter who can’t shift, a fairy who can’t fly, a hyperborean who can’t be bothered to give a mere human the time of day, and vampire-hating protestors who lob garlic at the lobby. Not to mention the orc at the security desk.

Interview with the Vampire, by Anne Rice

$2.99 Kindle Sale! ($7.99)

This is the book that started it all–the bestselling, 10-volume Vampire Chronicles series that catapulted Anne Rice into the realm of author legend. When it came out in 1976, the St. Louis Post-Dispatch said it was “hypnotically poetic in tone, rich in sensory imagery and dense with the darkness that lies behind the veil of human thought.” The New Republic, on the other hand, called it “pernicious.”

Critics aside, it earned almost $1,000,000 in sales and movie rights before it hit the streets and is now one of the essential cornerstones of any fantasy or paranormal collection. The deal has only a few days left, so don’t wait to pick up this timeless masterpiece.

Get the deal.
