Ode to Paranormal Books

An angel’s wings unfurled

as he takes to the sky in flight. 
A vampire finding love
in the darkest dark of night. 
A witch roaming the halls
as she tries to ignore the calls, 
and her true identity 
from every Tom, Jane and Harry. 
These are the kind of creatures
for whom I had befallen – 
completely and utterly
in love for eternity.
Heck, I know they’re fictional;
I would stop but I’m unable.
They’re just what I need – 
my addiction to feed. 
When life hands me lemons,
I don’t make lemonade. 
I read about vamps
stalking their sustenance. 
When the world kicks my ass,
I get lost in myths and legends.
Of Acheron, the god.
Or Zsadist, the vamp
and Barons, the hunter
who incites fear
and a trembling a bit severe.
But I don’t read every one of them
it takes quite a lot to get me hooked.
Ward, Kenyon and Moning –
the Holy Trinity of Writing.

Honourable Mentions:

Jeanine Frost. 
Ilona Andrews.
Stacia Kane. 

I’m a big fan of Cat and Bones – vampire hunters extra-ordinaire.

I’ve been seeing a whole slew of Kate Daniels love on my Goodreads feed as well and one of these days, I’ll endeavour to tackle that series. 

I have the first three books of the Downside Ghosts series by Stacia Kane, again, one of these days. Sigh.

What about you? Which paranormal series do you follow religiously?
  • I fell in love with the BDB last year and devoured the series and am anxiously waiting for Lover At Last. Love the Fever series too. Hope to get to Kat and Bones soon.

  • Love it! I'm so ashamed to say that I haven't read ANY of those books/authors you mentioned. I want to, and have some of the books, but just haven't yet. I especially want to meet Bones!

  • I'm a sucker for Charlaine Harris's Sookie Stackhouse series. It hasn't been what I fell in love with at the start but I blame True Blood for that lol I also enjoyed the first of Kelley Armstrong's The Otherworld series but due to my need to have the rest b4 I start well, I haven't finished it…

  • Love your ode, Joy! And my goodness, you haven't read Kate Daniels yet?! DO IT DO IT DO IT.

    I wonder why there is so much KD activity going on–is there a new book out? I've noticed a lot of action on my review of the first book recently.
