My Planetary Award nominee for a novel released in 2016 is:
Murphy's Law of Vampires (Love at First Bite Book 2) by Declan Finn
fter saving Brooklyn from a nest of vampires, Amanda Colt and Marco Catalano are a little banged up. He's been given a job offer to deal with vampires in San Francisco, and it's a tempting offer – it would get him away from Amanda, his feelings for her, and get her away from the darkness inside him. When a death in the family compels Marco to move to the West Coast, they're both left to fend for themselves.
But when a creature known only as “Mister Day” leaves their world in tatters, they must once more join forces against the darkness. Only "Day" is no vampire, but a creature beyond their experience. It will take the combined might of Marco, Amanda, and all of their allies just to slow it down. They have no weapons that can kill him. They have no ways to imprison him. To even fight him is death.
But they have to try, or face the end of everything they love.Nominated for edge-of-your-seat vampire action with just the right touch of romance.
Disclosure statement: Mr. Finn and I have appeared on each other's podcasts. Mr. Finn also accepted Souldancer's Dragon Award on my behalf last year. I haven't finished reading MLV yet, but since the deadline is tomorrow, I doubt I'll read another book published in 2016 before nominations close.
Here are three book reviews that I published on this blog in 2016:
Congratulations to all of the Planetary Awards nominees. May the best SFF win!
Although I didn't nominate any of my books, you should read the whole series, anyway. Folks driven from fandom by iron and clay age message fiction are rediscovering their love for SFF through the Soul Cycle.
