Sith lords, Vampires, and Witches can be found @ your library

Star Wars: The Old Republic: Deceived by Paul S. Kemp

From Barnes & Noble

Star Wars breeds franchises. This fiction, for example, is the offspring of the popular Star Wars: Knights of The Old Republic online video game offshoot. And Paul S. Kemp's new novel is no illegitimate spawn. In Deceived, Dark Lord Darth Malgus faces the relentless onslaught of Aryn Leneer, a rogue Jedi Knight intent on revenge. Pile it high; watch it fly.

Twilight's Dawn (Black Jewels Series) by Anne Bishop

From Publishers Weekly

Bestseller Bishop fills out her popular Black Jewels dark fantasy universe (Daughter of the Blood, etc.) with this entertaining novella collection. Daemon Sadi, a black-jeweled Warlord Prince, deals with friends, family, and holiday celebrations in "Winsol Gifts," while his brother, Lucivar Yaslana, has to thwart a traitor and his deadly trap in the richly entertaining "Shades of Honor." A mother and her sons are threatened by a dangerous, twisted enemy in "Family," while Daemon becomes a father and finds a new lease on life and love in "The High Lord's Daughter." Fans of the series will enjoy revisiting some favorite characters and mourn the loss of others; new readers may be initially confused by the myriad names and titles, but Bishop's accessible writing style and interesting world-building will soon draw them into her web.

Vampire Mine by Kerrelyn Sparks

From the Publisher

Nothing on earth can make this vampire fall in love . . .

After 499 years of existence, Connor Buchanan has arrived at an inescapable conclusion: he is a cold-hearted SOB. He's been watching his friends—those poor romantic fools—plummet off the cliff into love like a dazed herd of sheep. But not Connor. He knows that love leads to nothing but heartache.

Until Marielle . . .

She is an angel cast down from heaven for disobedience. Trapped in mortal form, she finds a protector in Connor, a Scottish vampire haunted by a dark past. Marielle hopes to heal his broken heart and earn her way back home, but suddenly she has these . . . feelings. This strange yet pleasant physical yearning—for a vampire! Is this the work of a demon luring her into hell, or has this angel found heavenly bliss?
