Beastly by Alex Flinn

I am a beast.
A beast!
Not quite wolf or bear, gorilla or dog but a horrible new creature who walks upright. I am a monster.
You think I’m talking fairy tales? No way. The place is New York City. The time is now. It’s no deformity, no disease. And I’ll, stay this way forever ruined unless I can break the spell.
Yes, the spell, the one the witch in my English class cast on me. Why did she turn me into a beast who hides by day and prowls by night? I’ll tell you. I’ll tell you how I used to be Kyle Kingsbury, the guy you wished you were, with money, perfect looks, and the perfect life. And then, I’ll tell you how I became perfectly…beastly.

Vamp Camp by Wynn Wagner

Who knew that being a gay vampire could be loving and tender? This is a blazingly fast adventure and all the scary / creepy / freaky drama you’d expect from a vampire tale. You also get the wicked wit of Mårten Larsson as he learns to live (no, not ‘live’ exactly) as a vampire. From steamy sex to hunting rogue goons, Mårten masters the art and science of vampirism.
Did he want to be a vamp? Not so much. He wanted it as much as he asked to have a sissy circle over the ‘å’ in his name. His mother didn’t ask him about the name, and his Maker didn’t ask if he wanted to be a vampire. He just woke up dead one day with a piece of paper that said, “Dude, you’re a vampire. Drink some blood.” The instructions were in a language he didn’t even know. Another vampire found Mårten and agreed to teach him how to be a vamp with the proper amount of suction.
Mårten tells us how he did it at VAMP CAMP. He has to survive without getting staked or baked. He gloats that he and his boyfriend can make love levitating on the topside of a cumulus cloud.
Just don’t ever mention that circle over the ‘å’ in his first name. He goes from zero to Viking Vampire in about a second, and he keeps breaking things before he calms down.
Join Mårten as he learns how to mainstream with fangs and a blood-lust.

WYNN WAGNER takes this tale of gay vampires to new heights. VAMP CAMP is tender, funny, sexy, and fast-paced.

Hourglass by Myra McEntire

One hour to rewrite the past . . .

For seventeen-year-old Emerson Cole, life is about seeing what isn’t there: swooning Southern Belles; soldiers long forgotten; a haunting jazz trio that vanishes in an instant. Plagued by phantoms since her parents’ death, she just wants the apparitions to stop so she can be normal. She’s tried everything, but the visions keep coming back.

So when her well-meaning brother brings in a consultant from a secretive organization called the Hourglass, Emerson’s willing to try one last cure. But meeting Michael Weaver may not only change her future, it may change her past.

Who is this dark, mysterious, sympathetic guy, barely older than Emerson herself, who seems to believe every crazy word she says? Why does an electric charge seem to run through the room whenever he’s around? And why is he so insistent that he needs her help to prevent a death that never should have happened?

Full of atmosphere, mystery, and romance, Hourglass merges the very best of the paranormal and science-fiction genres in a seductive, remarkable young adult debut.
