Meet Susan Hubbard, author of a new vampire series, The Society of S.

"If you ever want to hide from the world, live in a small city, where everyone seems anonymous." That's the advice of 12-year-old Ariella Montero, who lives with her father in Saratoga Springs, NY, in a house haunted more by secrets than by memories. THE SOCIETY OF S traces her journey south, to Asheville and Savannah, and on to Florida, as she learns that everything she knows about her family is a lie.

Set in Saratoga Springs, Savannah, and Homosassa Springs, FL, THE SOCIETY OF S traces a year in the education of thirteen-year-old Ariella Montero. Under the influence of Keats, Bertrand Russell, T.S. Eliot, and Jack Kerouac, Ari learns that she isn't "normal," and that sometimes the only way to find home is by running away.

The eagerly awaited second book of the critically acclaimed trilogy! D. M.Cornish, Monster Blood Tattoo, Book Two: Lamplighter is here.

Orphan Rossamünd Bookchild has been sworn into the Emperor’s service—his duty is to light the lamps along the Emperor’s highways and protect travelers from the ferocious bogles that live in the wild. But he’s found it no easier to fit in with the lamplighters than he did with the foundlings—always too small and too meek—and his loneliness continues no matter how hard he tries to succeed.

But when a haughty young girl, a member of a suspiciously regarded society of all-women teratologists— monster hunters—is forced upon the lamplighters for training, Rossamünd is no longer the most despised soul around. As Rossamünd begins to make new friends in the dangerous world of the Half-Continent, he also seems to make more enemies, finding himself pushed toward a destiny that he could never have imagined.
