Ward Against Death (Chronicles of a Reluctant Necromancer, # 1)

Ward Against Death
By Melanie Card
Release Date: Aug. 2rd 2011
Publisher: Entangled Publishing

Twenty-year-old Ward de’Ath expected this to be a simple job—bring a nobleman’s daughter back from the dead for fifteen minutes, let her family say good-bye, and launch his fledgling career as a necromancer. Goddess knows he can’t be a surgeon—the Quayestri already branded him a criminal for trying—so bringing people back from the dead it is.

But when Ward wakes the beautiful Celia Carlyle, he gets more than he bargained for. Insistent that she’s been murdered, Celia begs Ward to keep her alive and help her find justice. By the time she drags him out her bedroom window and into the sewers, Ward can’t bring himself to break his damned physician’s Oath and desert her.

However, nothing is as it seems—including Celia. One second, she’s treating Ward like sewage, the next she’s kissing him. And for a nobleman’s daughter, she sure has a lot of enemies. If he could just convince his heart to give up on the infuriating beauty, he might get out of this alive…

Release Date: April 1st 2011
Publisher: PL & EF Daniels
Beautiful vampire Anna, is entangled in a social conflict between human and vampire races. The Vampire Infection they'd thought could uncover medical miracles has spread out into the city.

Carrier Vampires who can infect people with the blood lust disease have been detained in an attempt to halt the spread. Non-carriers have been left to normal lives, treated with sedating medication. But there were still too many accidents, it's been decided by Alicorp to assign human protectors - mandated by law.

These protectors are know as....Guardians.

Anna falls in love with her guardian, a man who wants to find a cure, but the more she learns about him and his association with Alicorp the harder she finds it to trust him.
