Summary:

Volume three in the Ra's Chosen Series Reincarnated Hunger Unlike his fellow warriors, Kysen already had found his mate—the woman who’d stirred his blood like no other, but he’d been mortal at the time. When she’d died, he’d vowed to never love again. Cena is disappointed in men. Perhaps reading too many romance novels has done her in, but no man lives up to what she’s read…and dreamed. Foreseen Hunger Takan has hidden who he is for three thousand years, but the time for secrecy is coming to an end. He knows it, and more importantly, Ra knows it. Falon lost her love years ago to the bite of an undead and has spent her nights hunting the creatures ever since. She kisses Takan and discovers his fangs, and does what any warrior girl would do—she stabs him. Ra's Hunger After watching all his warriors find their mates, Ra wants nothing more than to find his. How hard could it be? He’s an Egyptian god, for crying out loud. Women should fall at his feet—and into his bed. Shanda doesn’t want a man right now. No way, no how. When a sexy stranger shows up at her museum, her sex-starved body doesn’t care. It wants him…posthaste. She might have a chance in hell of resisting him, if he’d only stop kissing her.

Summary:

Prominent examples from contemporary vampire literature expose a desire to re-evaluate and re-work the long-standing, folkloristic interpretation of the vampire as the immortal undead. This book explores the "new vampire" as a literary trope, offering a comprehensive critical analysis of vampires in contemporary popular literature and demonstrating how they engage with essential cultural preoccupations, anxieties, and desires. Drawing from cultural materialism, anthropology, psychoanalysis, literary criticism, gender studies, and postmodern thought, Piatti-Farnell re-frames the concept of the vampire in relation to a distinctly twenty-first century brand of Gothic imagination, highlighting important aesthetic, conceptual, and cultural changes that have affected the literary genre in the post-2000 era. She places the contemporary literary vampire within the wider popular culture scope, also building critical connections with issues of fandom and readership. In reworking the formulaic elements of the vampiric tradition — and experimenting with genre-bending techniques — this book shows how authors such as J.R. Ward, Stephanie Meyers, Charlaine Harris, and Anne Rice have allowed vampires to be moulded into enigmatic figures who sustain a vivid conceptual debt to contemporary consumer and popular culture. This book highlights the changes — conceptual, political and aesthetic — that vampires have undergone in the past decade, simultaneously addressing how these changes in "vampire identity" impact on the definition of the Gothic as a whole.

Summary:

This collection of fresh essays on Suzanne Collins’s epic trilogy spans multiple disciplines. The contributors probe the trilogy's meaning using theories grounded in historicism, feminism, humanism, queer theory, as well as cultural, political, and media studies. The essayists demonstrate diverse perspectives regarding Collins’s novels but their works have three elements in common: an appreciation of the trilogy as literature, a belief in its permanent value, and a need to share both appreciation and belief with fellow readers. The 21 essays that follow the context-setting introduction are grouped into four parts: Part I “History, Politics, Economics, and Culture,” Part II “Ethics, Aesthetics, and Identity,” Part III “Resistance, Surveillance, and Simulacra,” and Part IV “Thematic Parallels and Literary Traditions.” A core bibliography of dystopian and postapocalyptic works is included, with emphasis on the young adult category—itself an increasingly crucial part of postmodern culture. Instructors considering this book for use in a course may request an examination copy here.

Summary:

Vampires have always lived in Eastern Europe. But with the fall of the Soviet Union, they began to spread across the continent, then the world, turning whole populations into vampires--or human cattle. Having overrun India, the far East, and the great cities of North and South America, the forces of Night are now spreading into the countryside to consolidate their conquest. In a town on the New Jersey shore, the vampires have just arrived, along with their human henchmen, the cowboys, who round up human cattle for the overlords in return for the promise of eternal life---later. For the vampires wish only a few of their own kind to rule, and feed. The rest of humanity are to be helpless herds, the source of the blood of life. Falsely accused of abuse, Father Dan is drunk in a basement waiting for the end. His superior has betrayed the local Catholic congregation and become a vampire. Sister Carolyn has become a formidable killer of cowboys and vampires. Dan's niece, escaped from the conquest of New York, has made her way south to find him. Brought together by Rabbi Zev Wolpin, who is shaken by the vampires' fear of the cross and holy water, they plan their resistance. Against all odds, they discover that there just might be a way for humanity to really fight back. But first they will have to kill the vampire king of New York.

Summary:

Twilight, True Blood and The Vampire Diaries have sparked intense fan activity and generated a large quantity of fan fiction: stories which test the limits of an already existing fictional work and explore gaps and discrepancies within it. Working from the idea that texts constitute archives, expanded and altered by each addition, close readings of a selection of fanfics illustrate particular transformative practices in the online environment. The central figure of the vampire is read through the lens of fanfic authors’ contributions to the archives, particularly regarding how figuratively or literally refanged versions of the trope are used to subvert norms established in the source texts concerning depictions of sexuality, sexual practices, and monstrosity. Complex relationships between authorial power and subversion, between mainstream messages and individual interpretations, are examined through fanfic analyses, the findings contributing to discussions about contemporary literary creativity.

Summary:

In David Weber's How Firm a Foundation, the fifth book in the Safehold series, the Charisian Empire, born in war, has always known it must fight for its very survival. What most of its subjects don't know even now, however, is how much more it's fighting for. Emperor Cayleb, Empress Sharleyan, Merlin Athrawes, and their innermost circle of most trusted advisers do know. And because they do, they know the penalty if they lose will be far worse than their own deaths and the destruction of all they know and love. For five years, Charis has survived all the Church of God Awaiting and the corrupt men who control it have thrown at the island empire. The price has been high and paid in blood. Despite its chain of hard-fought naval victories, Charis is still on the defensive. It can hold its own at sea, but if it is to survive, it must defeat the Church upon its own ground. Yet how does it invade the mainland and take the war to a foe whose population outnumbers its own fifteen to one? How does it prevent that massive opponent from rebuilding its fleets and attacking yet again? Charis has no answer to those questions, but needs to find one...quickly. The Inquisition's brutal torture and hideous executions are claiming more and more innocent lives. Its agents are fomenting rebellion against the only mainland realms sympathetic to Charis. Religious terrorists have been dispatched to wreak havoc against the Empire's subjects. Assassins stalk the Emperor and Empress, their allies and advisers, and an innocent young boy, not yet eleven years old, whose father has already been murdered. And Merlin Athrawes, the cybernetic avatar of a young woman a thousand years dead, has finally learned what sleeps beneath the far-off Temple in the Church of God Awaiting's city of Zion. The men and women fighting for human freedom and tolerance have built a foundation for their struggle in the Empire of Charis with their own blood, but will that foundation be firm enough to survive?

Summary:

Kidnapped and tortured, Alexia faced the reality of her own death. She struggled for survival, but eventually succumbed to the torture wreaked upon her by an unknown assailant. In the last moments of her life there was no more struggling, she simply gave up and there was darkness. Out of the darkness, he appeared. Seifer was his name, he offered her a chance to avenge her murder. He gave her no reasons. He offered her no clues. In her desperation, Alexia accepted his offer in order to save her own life. She did not yet know what life would cost her. Carried back in time, Alexia had a year to solve her murder. She set out with her twin sister, Alexis, and her would-be husband, Damien. Little did she know of the darkness growing inside of her. She had no way of understanding the changes that were taking place within her. She would save her life, at the cost of her self. Her personal identity threatened, her relations with those around her torn, Alexia is forced to ask herself the question: What am I willing to sacrifice of myself to sustain my existence? She is forced to decide whether death would have been preferable to the loss of ones grip on reality, sense of personal identity and rupture from all that they hold dear. Is life itself more valuable than who we are? Is there a fate within life that is worse than death? What are you willing to give up in order to survive?
